Joe Biden Revokes Important Trump Order Protecting Federal Monuments

( )- After the wave of riots that followed the death of George Floyd resulted in numerous incidents of vandalism against historic statues and monuments, President Trump issued an order requiring that laws prohibiting the desecration of public monuments and vandalism of government property be strictly enforced. The order also withheld federal funding to local governments that did not take steps to prevent the destruction of statues.

And last Friday, President Biden revoked it – along with several other orders issued by the former President.

In addition to the order protecting federal monuments, Biden revoked Trump’s plan to create a “National Monument of Heroes.” He also yanked the Trump’s order to prevent online censorship from the Tech monopolies.

The most consequential reversal, however, was the ending of President Trump’s order denying entry of immigrants into the US who were deemed a financial burden on the health care system.

That one should come as no surprise since Biden, along with every other Democrat candidate, raised his hand when asked if non-citizens should be provided with subsidized health insurance.

Since January 20, the Biden White House has taken the “If Trump ordered it, we’ll revoke it” approach to Executive Orders. From cancelling the Keystone Pipeline to giving health insurance to non-citizens to ending Trump’s highly effective “remain in Mexico” policy – no order, no matter how successful has been spared.

In February President Biden, in explaining his decision to overturn President Trump’s executive orders, said:

“What I’m doing is taking on the issues that — 99% of them — that the president, 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.”

How is revoking an order to enforce the law “counterproductive to who we are as a country?”

How is punishing those who destroy Federal property “counterproductive to our security?”

For that matter, how has ending the successful “remain in Mexico” policy productive to our security?

In his first 100 days in office, Biden issued 60 executive actions – 24 of which were reversals of Trump’s policies.

And he probably isn’t done yet.
