The Daily Mail reports on Joe Biden’s visit to the Texas border of El Paso:
On Tuesday and Wednesday law enforcement teams moved through the downtown area, picking up migrants who had entered the country illegally.
As a result, he may get a view of the border but not of the crisis, say infuriated border agents who wanted him to see the scale of the chaos last month.
‘It’s a dog and pony show,’ said a volunteer helping dozens of migrants seeking shelter at the Sacred Heart Church. “They’ve cleaned it all up for him.”
Officials say they are just enforcing the rules and that any timing is coincidence.
But a day before the president’s arrival and the scene could not be more different to the chaos of late December. Migrant numbers surged then as arrivals timed their journeys to coincide with the expected end of Title 42 — a Trump-era restriction that eventually won a stay of execution at the Supreme Court.
Then hundreds of mainly Venezuelan refugees camped out on the sidewalks around the Greyhound Bus station in downtown.
Now their bundles of clothes and belongings are gone after border agents moved through the area during the week.
State officials, including Texas Governor Greg Abbott, greeted President Biden when he landed. Governor Abbott didn’t hold back.
NBC News reported:
Upon landing, Biden was greeted by the members of Congress and other officials, including Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, who handed the president a letter demanding he take further enforcement actions at the border. The demands included that Biden work to detain, prosecute and remove more migrants under current federal laws and resume border wall construction, which the president largely halted after taking office, according to a copy of the letter provided by the Texas governor’s office.
