Opposing Agendas: Biden, Trump Visit Southern Border



 Both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump will visit the U.S.-Mexico border today, as controversy over the handling of the migrant crisis continues.

The White House press secretary told reporters the president will meet with border patrol agents and local leaders in Brownsville, Texas. He will also call on Republicans to vote to pass a bipartisan border security deal negotiated in the Senate.

Trump, meanwhile, will deliver remarks about 300 miles away in Eagle Pass, Texas.

San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg says with so many people displaced around the world, migrant surges are nothing new.

“We are seeing certainly a surge of migrants at the southern border. We have for years under multiple administrations, we’ve had 600,000 migrants through our community since January of 2023. We’ve seen these things under Trump, we’ve seen them under Biden, we’ve seen them in administrations far beyond that. What is different here is a level of demagoguery that’s being played out by extreme MAGA Republicans at the behest of Trump,” Nirenberg said.
