BREAKING: Joe Biden finally plans border visit but where he’s going is lame…

After allowing seven million illegals into the country, Joe Biden has planned a visit to the southern border during the fourth year of his presidency.

According to Newsmax and the AP, he’ll be heading down there the same day Trump is planning a visit:

President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump will make dueling trips to the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas on Thursday after congressional talks on a deal to rein in illegal migration collapsed, according to people familiar with the plans.

The visits underscore the central role immigration is going to play in the 2024 presidential race.

Biden will travel to Brownsville, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley, an area that often sees large numbers of border crossings, said three people who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss the president’s plans before they had been formally announced.

He will meet with border agents and discuss the need for bipartisan legislation, the people said. It would be his second visit to the border as president. He traveled to El Paso last January.

Trump, for his part, will head to Eagle Pass, Texas about 325 miles away from Brownsville, another hot spot in the state-federal clash over border security, according to another person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss the plans.

Biden is going to the Rio Grand Valley area in Brownsville, Texas. The AP makes this sound like a great place to go, but Bill Melugin suggests it’s one of the slowest parts of the border right now:

Interesting that President Biden has chosen Brownsville/Rio Grande Valley sector for his visit. It has been slow there for months. Only getting around 200-400 per day across all of RGV sector recently. Yesterday was 314 encounters.

Meanwhile, San Diego & Tucson sectors BUSY in blue states w/ typically 1,000-2,000ish per day. Biden’s last visit to the border was in El Paso *after* a huge surge of illegal crossings where the streets had been cleared of migrant camps and the visit was highly sanitized – Biden did not see or talk to a single migrant, nor did he visit a Border Patrol station. We’ll see if this time Is different.

Biden is only going to make it seem like he cares about the border. He’s got a plan to reduce illegal crossings ahead of his SOTU and so this visit is just all part of a plan to try and change the narrative from him having mental problems to him actually caring about this country. It’s nothing but a bunch of lies that he’s going to try and sell at the SOTU.
