At the Oval Office’s Resolute Desk, Biden rolled out 15 orders and two other action items. He made mask wearing in all federal buildings and during interstate travel mandatory. He also signed orders for America to formally rejoin the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Paris climate agreement.
Furthermore, Biden is stopping Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s actions that cause family separation. He has also halted construction of the wall along the US-Mexico border.
Biden also signed another three to address racial disparities and inequities within the U.S. government and its operations.
He inked a decree directing the federal bureaucracy to conduct reviews and isolate any racial inequities in how government resources are allocated.
This dissolves the 1776 Commission, a Trump advisory committee established last September.
Another order borders on federal workplace sex discrimination protections to LGBTQ Americans.
The administration will roll out a total of 53 executive actions over the next 10 days.
