(CBS News) – President-elect Joe Biden is expected to unveil a slate of executive orders and other legislative pushes on the first day of his presidency aimed at reversing some of the most controversial aspects of President Trump’s presidency, according to two sources familiar with the transition.
The president-elect also announced a COVID-19 task force on Monday, comprising 13 public health experts and scientists who will help translate his pandemic response plan into policy.
Mr. Biden plans to move quickly to rescind Mr. Trump’s “Muslim ban” on immigration from certain countries, and implement a temporary moratorium on deportations while reviewing the deportation system. He is also expected to send a bill to Congress to grant a pathway to citizenship for DREAMers, and rejoin the Paris climate agreement and World Health Organization.
Mr. Biden is expected to start announcing White House staff appointments this week.
On Saturday night, the president-elect addressed the nation in his first speech since being projected as the winner. He urged Americans to bring an end to “this grim era of demonization in America.”
While Mr. Trump has not yet conceded, he spent Sunday as he spent Saturday — at the golf course. He is not expected to make any public appearances.
