Day Six – A Return to the Status Quo

Biden began his presidency with a large number of executive orders; his first Monday in office saw only three signed. The first reversed the 2018 presidential memorandum, thereby allowing transgender individuals to openly serve in the military. The second, a proclamation, reinstated the COVID-19 international travel ban; this prohibits non-U.S. citizens who are from Brazil and most of Europe as well as anyone who has recently been to South America, where a new strain has been found, from entering the country. In his final executive order of the day, Biden instated a “buy America” agenda that promotes federal buying of U.S.- made products as well as instructing agencies to begin closing any loopholes that allow for companies to move manufacturing and businesses overseas while still getting domestic benefits.
