SUMMARY: President Biden and former President Trump will be visiting the southern border later this evening, ahead of the March 5th primary where presidential candidates will discuss border security. This will be President Biden’s second visit to the US-Mexico border, with a focus on immigration, a central issue in the 2024 presidential race. Trump will be about 300 miles away from Biden in Brownsville, Texas. The US Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Biden administration, allowing federal agents to remove Texas barriers. Governor Abbott continues to use state resources to enforce the border, prioritizing public safety and crime reduction.

Pres. Biden and former Pres. Trump will be visiting the southern border Thursday as the presidential candidates discuss border security ahead of the March 5 primary.
