Biden and Trump makes competing visits to the US-Mexico border

WASHINGTON, 1 March: US President Joe Biden and his rival, Donald Trump, made separate competing trips to the Mexico border to campaign for the November elections, at a time when immigration has become a major issue among voters.

Joe Biden, who has a defensive policy on immigration, has visited the town of Brownsville and highlighted Democrats’ resistance to Republicans’ harsh anti-immigration policies.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the President is going there to show that the Republicans are making hurdles in our way.

Biden promised to ease immigration policies when taking office in 2021 but could not stick to his stance due to pressure from Republicans.

Trump’s press secretary equated the scenes at the border to “crime”, accusing Biden of being soft on immigration and said that Trump will outline his plan for border management.

Voters across the political spectrum have expressed growing concern over the situation at the border, and few, as little as 18% according to a survey by the Pew Research Center, are pleased with the administration’s handling of it.
