President Biden is making his first trip to the southern border. Biden briefly shook hands with Texas Governor Greg Abbott and other officials shortly after Air Force One landed in El Paso this afternoon. He's expected to spend several hours in the border city which has become the epicenter of the border crisis. Today's visit comes as the White House pushes for immigration reform.

Governor Greg Abbott hand delivered a letter to President Biden, upon his arrival in El Paso for his first trip to the border, calling on him to do his job and secure the border by enforcing federal immigration laws. 

 In the letter, the Governor provided five specific actions the President can immediately take to secure the border and restore order to an out-of-control immigration crisis.

"This chaos is the direct result of your failure to enforce the immigration laws that Congress enacted," reads the letter. "Your open-border policies have emboldened the cartels, who grow wealthy by trafficking deadly fentanyl and even human beings. Texans are paying an especially high price for your failure, sometimes with their very lives, as local leaders from your own party will tell you if given the chance. On behalf of all Americans, I implore you: Secure our border by enforcing Congress’s immigration laws."

The Governor handed the letter to President Biden after greeting him on the tarmac at the El Paso International Airport. This visit marks the President's first trip to the southern border since being sworn into office almost two years ago.
