Biden Reverses Visa Ban On Nigeria, Others.

US President, Joe Biden has reversed Trump policy that restricted the granting of immigrant visas to Nigerians.

In January 2020, Nigeria and Six other countries were restricted from gaining immigrant visas.

At the time, the United States government said the policy was designed to tighten security for countries that fail to comply with the states’ minimum security standards or cooperate to prevent illegal immigration.

But Biden administration, which campaigned partly on a message of diversity, is seeking to re-open America border to the world.

The reversal is part of a 10-day onslaught of executive actions intended to overturn Trump’s key policies without waiting for Congress, on topics ranging from the COVID-19 pandemic to climate change and criminal justice, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.

Biden has halted the US exit from the World Health Organization, stopped construction of Trump’s cherished wall on the Mexican border, and rescinded a ban on visitors from several Muslim-majority nations.

He has also committed the United States to rejoining the Paris climate accord, blocked an oil pipeline project, and froze Arctic drilling in a raft of executive orders signed hours after taking office Wednesday.
