March 10th marked President Joe Biden’s 50th day in office. The far-left promises he has kept in the first 50 days, just to name a few.
Biden’s presidency started by going around Congress to change policies through executive orders unilaterally. Biden signed a stack of orders on his first day, rolling back many of Trump’s policies.
1. Revoking the Keystone XL Pipestone
The Biden campaign released a statement in May 2020 stating as President it will be stopped for good, referring to the Keystone XL Pipeline
Leaving up to 70,000 Americans out of work, Biden revoked the Keystone XL Pipeline permit on his first day of office.
“It’s only day one, and with the stroke of a pen, Biden has already taken steps to kill American energy projects like the Keystone XL Pipeline, which is critical to energy-producing states like Montana,” Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) said in a statement. The move to end the pipeline “is a slap in the face to thousands of union workers who are already a part of this safe and sustainable project,” said Mark McManus, the general President of the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters.
2. Ending Migration Controls
Biden promised to end Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program in March 2020. The program helped end the practice of border crossers being released into the U.S. interior while waiting on asylum hearings.
“Donald Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy is dangerous, inhumane, and goes against everything we stand for as a nation of immigrants,” Biden wrote in a statement. “My administration will end it.”
As Biden ended Remain in Mexico in one of his first executive orders, roughly 25,600 migrants are being released into the interior of the U.S.
3. Pledge to rejoin the World Health Organization ( W.H.O.)
In July 2020, Biden pledged on his first day in office; he would rejoin the W.H.O.
One of Biden’s first executive orders, he wrote to the United Nations declaring that the U.S. would not be leaving the W.H.O. despite the W.H.O’s failures on the coronavirus.
4. Rejoining the Paris Climate Accord
Biden promised to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement on his first day in office.
January 20th, Biden’s first day in office, he returned to the Paris Agreement.
5. Most Illegal Alien Deportations Halted.
Biden promised that illegal aliens would not be deported until they are convicted of felonies continuously throughout the 2020 presidential campaign.
“The only deportations that will take place is convictions of felonies in the United States of America,” Biden said in March 2020.
In a memo from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.), agents are not arresting or deporting nine in ten illegal aliens who would have been detained. The guidelines prevent agents from deporting illegals unless recently convicted in aggravated felonies.
