Biden signs 3 executive orders reversing Trump on immigration:
President Biden on Tuesday signed a trio of executive orders to reverse the immigration policies of former President Donald Trump, continuing his brisk shift of policies by the stroke of a pen.
Biden signed orders to end a 2018 “zero tolerance” policy on prosecuting illegal border crossings and to seek unification of parents with children detained at the border.
He also signed an order requesting a comprehensive review Trump-era immigration policies,
“There’s a lot of talk, with good reason, about the number of executive orders that I signed. I’m not making new law, I’m eliminating bad policy,” Biden told reporters in the Oval Office.
“The last president of the United States issued executive orders I felt were very counterproductive to our security, counterproductive to who we are as a country, particularly in the area of immigration.”
Biden was joined in the Oval Office by Vice President Kamala Harris and his just-confirmed Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who was approved by the Senate in a 56-43 vote on Tuesday. --->READ MORE HERE

Biden signs order easing immigrants' access to welfare:
President Biden moved Tuesday to wipe away more of the Trump immigration infrastructure, signing orders easing legal immigrants’ access to welfare and revoking his predecessor’s get-tough border policies.
Mr. Biden also created a task force to reunify families separated under the Trump zero-tolerance border policy of 2018. While thousands of children have been reunited, hundreds still have not been officially reconnected, nearly three years late.
A new White House coordinator has been tasked with reviewing other Trump-era policies Mr. Biden says erected barriers to legal immigration. --->READ MORE HERE
