Biden to Visit Southern Border This Week

President Joe Biden and Donald Trump will both visit the southern border on Thursday.

“Biden will travel to Brownsville, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley, an area that often sees large numbers of border crossings,” the Associated Press reported.

“He will meet with border agents and discuss the need for bipartisan legislation.”

Thursday will mark Biden’s second visit to the border during his time in office.

The Border Patrol Union ridiculed President Biden’s planned visit as a plot to save his presidency at the expense of Americans’ safety. 

The union said Biden’s planned border visit “after repeatedly stating there is no crisis is too little, too late.” 

The union argued that “there would be no point in visiting the border now.”

“But even if he were to put the proper policies in place at this late hour, he’d be doing it only to try to save his Presidency. And self-serving actions when time is winding down should always give Americans pause. Common sense dictates that as a lame duck, he’d revert to his open border policies if re-elected,” the union said. 

“Biden is going to the border now solely to try to save himself. Border security should never be about politics, it should always be about the safety and security of this great nation and the American people.”
