The Congressional Review Act "allows lawmakers to overturn any regulation imposed during the final six months of the previous administration, with a simple majority vote in each chamber of Congress" during the first 60 days of the next administration. The repealed regulations include:
  • "The 'Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces' rule, which barred companies from receiving federal contracts if they had a history of violating wage, labor or workplace safety laws. That regulation, derided by critics as the "blacklisting" rule, was already held up in court.
  • A Bureau of Land Management rule known as 'Planning 2.0,' that gave the federal government a bigger role in land use decisions. The rule was opposed by the energy industry.
  • Two regulations on measuring school performance and teacher training under the Every Student Succeeds Act, a law Obama signed in 2015 with bipartisan support."
And also include:
  • "The Interior Department's stream-protection rule, which prevented mountaintop removal coal operations from dumping the rubble into stream valleys.
  • The Securities and Exchange Commission's oil anti-corruption rule, which requires energy companies to report payments made to foreign governments.
  • The broadband-privacy rule, put in place by the FCC which required Internet service providers to get their subscribers' permission before selling their data to third parties.
  • A rule regarding the Alaska National Wildlife Refuges, which, among other things, barred the hunting of bears in Alaska using aircraft."

In January 2017, Vice President Pence told Republican lawmakers "What I can tell you is that I would anticipate that the administration is going to initiate a full evaluation of voting rolls in the country, the overall integrity of our voting system in the wake of this past election." On Wednesday June 28 2017 the Commission, led by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, sent a letter to all 50 states and Washington D.C. requesting information on all registered voters in every state including "registrants' full names, addresses, dates of birth, political parties, the last four digits of their social security numbers, a list of the elections they voted in since 2006, information on any felony convictions, information on whether they were registered to vote in other states, their military status, and whether they lived overseas." Some states raised concerns with some of the private data being requested, and as of Wednesday July 5 2017 "forty-four states and the District of Columbia have refused to provide certain types" of this data. "A federal judge in Washington, D.C., noted in July [2017] that the commission was an advisory body that lacked legal authority to compel states to hand over data." The panel was disbanded with another executive order on Wednesday January 3, 2018.

The Clean Water Rule, also known as the Waters of the United States Rule, clarified the inclusion of "some 2 million miles of headwaters and streams that flow only part of the year — 60 percent of the river and stream miles in the Lower 48 states — plus 20 million acres of wetlands that aren't directly connected to large waterways." 31 states, 21 Senators, and 70 members of Congress sued the federal government over the Clean Water Rule, claiming it is an overreach of power by the federal government, which should not have jurisdiction over local tributaries that never cross state lines. Scott Pruitt, then Attorney General of Oklahoma and currently the head of the EPA, participated in this lawsuit. On February 28 2017 President Trump issued an Executive Order asking the EPA to review the Waters of the United States Rule, in an effort "to ensure that the Nation's navigable waters are kept free from pollution, while at the same time promoting economic growth, minimizing regulatory uncertainty, and showing due regard for the roles of the Congress and the States under the Constitution." On June 27 2017 the EPA issued a proposed change to the Clean Water Rule to be the "same as the definition that existed prior to promulgation of the Clean Water Rule in 2015 and that has been in effect nationwide since the Clean Water Rule was stayed on October 9, 2016."  In other words, the EPA is proposing to remove all of the additional smaller and local waterways from EPA pollution regulation and oversight that were included under the Clean Water Rule.

  1. It orders the administration to"vigorously enforce Federal law's robust protections for religious freedom"
  2. It orders the Secretary of Health and Human Services to "consider issuing amended regulations, consistent with applicable law, to address conscience-based objections to the preventive-care mandate"
  3. It orders the Attorney General to "issue guidance interpreting religious liberty protections in Federal law"
  4. It also allows religious institutions to engage in political activities and support candidates:

The Secretary of the Treasury shall ensure, to the extent permitted by law, that the Department of the Treasury does not take any adverse action against any individual, house of worship, or other religious organization on the basis that such individual or organization speaks or has spoken about moral or political issues from a religious perspective, where speech of similar character has, consistent with law, not ordinarily been treated as participation or intervention in a political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) a candidate for public office.

However, the language of this executive order is vague and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) "has determined not to file a lawsuit at this time" because "the order does not meaningfully alter the ability of religious institutions or individuals to intervene in the political process. The order portends but does not yet do harm to the provision of reproductive health services." In addition,"while the order aims to allow employers to deny covering contraception for employers if that clashes with the higher-ups’ religious beliefs [bullet 3 above], federal agencies still have final say on whether employers can take that action."

In fact, federal courts across the country have found complying with the requests is voluntary. Each person arrested by local law enforcement is fingerprinted, and information about the arrestee is shared with federal agencies such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which is the primary federal agency for managing immigration laws.  If ICE identifies an undocumented immigrant, it submits a request to detain that person for an additional period of time (at the expense of local law enforcement) until ICE can then take custody of that person.   Although there is no standard legal definition of sanctuary city, these types of policies typically make it clear they will not comply with these or other requests related to using local law enforcement to capture and detain immigrants of any status.   Many cities across the country have enacted some sort of sanctuary city policy. A new anti-sanctuary city law in Texas "threatens police chiefs and elected officials with jail time and removal from office if they don't comply with federal immigration requests to detain immigrants in the country illegally.  The four largest cities in Texas — San Antonio, Austin, Houston and Dallas— are suing to block the measure." Lansing, MI had a sanctuary city policy but “city council members voted 5-2 to rescind the policy because business owners worried the term “sanctuary” would draw unwelcome attention to the city.”

However, on April 25 2017 "a California judge has temporarily blocked a section of an executive order signed by President Donald Trump aiming to withhold federal funds from so-called 'sanctuary cities'." The judge ruled that this executive order does not have the authority to limit funding in this manner for cities.  He noted the constitutional limitations of Trump's executive order in his judgement:

The Constitution vests the spending powers in Congress, not the President, so the Order cannot constitutionally place new conditions on federal funds. Further, the Tenth Amendment requires that conditions on federal funds be unambiguous and timely made; that they bear some relation to the funds at issue; and that the total financial incentive not be coercive. Federal funding that bears no meaningful relationship to immigration enforcement cannot be threatened merely because a jurisdiction chooses an immigration enforcement strategy of which the President disapproves.

In other words, only congress can control federal funding appropriations and any limitations on this funding must be somehow related to that funding and not because of some other separate action.

On March 6 2017, Trump issued an executive order revoking his original executive order travel ban and loosening travel restrictions.  This new executive order travel ban imposes "a temporary pause on the entry of nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, subject to categorical exceptions and case-by-case waivers" (the original list of restricted countries also included Iraq). Any person with travel documents permitting travel to the United States (i.e. travel visas) that are valid as of the date of the executive order (March 6 2017) will not be affected.  In other words, this executive order issues "a 90-day ban on the issuance of new visas" of the 6 countries listed above (compared to a total unrestricted ban of all travel). In addition "any individual whose visa was marked revoked or marked canceled as a result of Executive Order 13769 shall be entitled to a travel document confirming that the individual is permitted to travel to the United States and seek entry." The new executive order also calls for a comprehensive review of travel and immigration polices, procedures, and screening processes:

The Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence, shall conduct a worldwide review to identify whether, and if so what, additional information will be needed from each foreign country to adjudicate an application by a national of that country for a visa.

This new executive order also suspends admission of refugees for 120 days, but also limits the total number of refugees admitted annually to 50,000 (the previous annual limit was 120,000).

Trump granted a Presidential pardon to Joe Arpaio, former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona." Arpaio was convicted of criminal contempt of court on July 31, 2017 by Federal Judge Susan Bolton for failing to adhere to an order by another Federal Judge to stop racial profiling of Hispanic people. Judge Bolton ruled that "Arpaio knowingly violated a federal judge's order in 2011. At that time, Arpaio was told he could not detain immigrants [often through traffic stops] simply because they lacked legal status — but for 18 months, his deputies carried on with the practice."
