On January 8, U.S. President Joe Biden visited El Paso, Texas, on the U.S. -Mexico border for the first time since taking office nearly two years ago. In just a few hours in El Paso, Biden visited the busiest border crossing in El Paso and traveled to the border wall area that separates El Paso from the Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez.
The White House unveiled its latest immigration policy just before Biden’s visit to the U.S.-Mexico border, and the program, which the White House touted as “planned and practical,” has received “poor reviews” from both parties.The Republican side argues that the new policy does not address the long-term need for security and stability at the border.The Democrats, on the other hand, attacked the new policy as nothing more than a repetition of the “old wine in new bottles” type of immigration policy of the Trump era.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott handed Biden a letter when he greeted him that day, in which Abbott blasted Biden for “coming two years too late and $20 billion short” and criticized Biden’s trip for “avoiding the sites of mass illegal immigration and the thousands of angry Texans” whose “lives have been devastated by your border policies.”
The latest poll released by the polling website “Real Clear Politics” shows that only 37% of the American people support the immigration policy of the White House.
