Vice President Joe Biden is finally heading to the treacherous U.S.-Mexico border for a quick tour on Sunday, exactly two years after his inauguration.
Biden will spend some time on the streets of El Paso, Texas too, which is currently the most popular corridor for illegal crossings.
Biden's visit to Mexico City is scheduled to coincide with an international conference where Biden will meet with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
Biden has been known to distance himself from his border crisis by avoiding questions and delegating the responsibility to Vice-President Kamala Harris and Alejandro Mayorkas, his pro-migration, Cuban born, Homeland Security chief.
As Breitbart News stated, the trip is the result of many years of the Biden administration incompetence that have led to an influx of border crossings
Since Biden's inauguration on January 20, 2021, he and his administration have let around 3.5 millions immigrants through the border into southern Mexico, with more than 1 million “gotaways” that snuck past the few border guards that remain.
The flow is 14 times higher than those who were admitted during President Donald Trump's last year, and this has led to a reduction in the cost of living and boosted rents for at least 100 million Americans.
Biden is scheduled to have a meeting with officials at the border on Sunday to discuss immigration and the increasing trade in fentanyl and other synthetic opioids that is causing a surge in overdoses across the U.S.
Biden will be visiting the El Paso County Migrant Services Center and will meet with non-profit organizations and religious groups that assist migrants who are arriving to the U.S. It's unclear if Biden will meet with anyone who is a refugee, as the AP report states.
Republican John Cornyn of Texas provided some advice prior to Biden's arrival, a few days after the alleged human smuggler shot one El Paso Border Patrol agent in a routine traffic stop.
“He must take the time to learn from some of the experts I rely on the most, including local officials and law enforcement, landowners, nonprofits, U.S. Customs and Border Protection's officers and agents, and folks who make their livelihoods in border communities on the front lines of his crisis,” Cornyn stated.
