Washington, DC — Heritage Action for America today released a statement from Executive Director Jessica Anderson responding to President Biden’s first executive actions after his inauguration:
"As the Biden administration begins today, conservatives are prepared to fight back against the destructive policies of the far Left. Biden’s day-one actions will make America less safe, less free, and less prosperous. In particular, he plans to use executive orders to:
Rescind the Keystone XL pipeline permit, killing jobs and making America more dependent on foreign energy
Re-join the disastrous Paris climate agreement, costing American families $20,000 each
Issue an ineffective 100-day mask mandate
Endanger Americans by reversing the restrictions on travel from terrorist safe havens
Weaken national security by halting construction on the border wall
Increase funding to sanctuary cities that unconstitutionally harbor illegal immigrants
At best, these measures are misguided — at worst, they’re destructive. At a time when the president should be looking for opportunities for more American jobs, he’s going in the opposite direction. These orders will sacrifice the American economy for a far-Left, progressive agenda.
Biden campaigned on “unity,” but his first actions immediately reveal his true priority is the agenda of the far Left: to remake America. These actions are divisive and destructive — and there’s far more to come. That’s why Heritage Action is committed to fighting these far-Left policies and mobilizing conservatives to protect the historic gains made over the last four years."
