USA Muslim ban set to end on day one of Biden presidency





Joe Biden intends to cancel Donald Trump's Travel bans on Travellers from 13 countries which includes the Muslims or the African Countries.

During 2017, Donald Trump issued an executive Order that banned travellers from seven Muslim Countries from entering America.

The Trump administration reworked the order several times amid legal challenges and the Supreme Court upheld a version of it in 2018.

The countries subject to entry restrictions have changed over the years.

According to the Policy Experts, The bans could be easily undone as they were issued by executive order and presidential proclamation, but the lawsuits from conservatives could delay the process.

In October, Biden also promised to push politicians for laws to fight the surging number of hate crimes in United states.

“As president, I’ll work with you to rip the poison of hate from our society to honour your contributions and seek your ideas. My administration will look like America with Muslim Americans serving at every level,” he said.

“On day one, I’ll end Trump’s unconstitutional Muslim ban.” Biden said

During the Trump Adminstration, He Imposed the travel Restrictions and also allude to critics as the Muslim ban,

In a Series of Executive orders picked out, Iran, Somalia, Syria, Libya and Yemen triggering criticism that it amounted to unlawful religious discrimination.

Trump then expanded the ban to include Venezuela and North Korea and later added Nigeria, Sudan, Myanmar and three other countries to the list.

“Muslim communities are the first to feel Donald Trump’s assault on Black and brown communities in this country, with his vile Muslim ban. That fight was the opening barrage in what has been nearly four years of constant pressure and insults,” Biden said.


On Saturday, The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the US’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organisation, congratulated Joe Biden on his defeat on Saturday and said it would hold him to his election promises.

“President-elect Biden has pledged to end the Muslim Ban on his first day in office, include Muslims at every level of his administration and address issues of racial and religious discrimination,” said Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director.

“We plan to join other American Muslim leaders and organisations in ensuring that the Biden administration fulfils these promises. We also plan to continue holding our government accountable when it errs.”

During the election campaign, Trump accused Biden of wanting to “end all travel bans, including from jihadist regions”, and implied his challenger would allow “people that are going to come in and blow up our cities, do things”
