Trump to Visit Southern Border With Texas Gov. Greg Abbott

By US News, June 16, 2021

Former President Donald Trump will accompany Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on a trip to the southern border at the end of the month, he announced Tuesday evening in a statement that criticized the Biden administration’s handling of immigration.

The trip is the latest in a series of high-profile moves by Abbott putting immigration in the spotlight, and it will put Trump on familiar ground – both literally and figuratively. Trump’s pledge to build a border wall helped propel him to the presidency in 2016 and immigration remained one of Trump’s signature issues during his term.

Abbott, a Republican, has focused intensely on immigration in recent months and has put himself and the state of Texas squarely in opposition to the Biden administration on the issue. Most recently, Abbott ordered the state to yank the licenses of shelters that care for unaccompanied migrant children in the custody of the federal government. He also last week announced that Texas would build its own border wall after Biden halted construction on Trump’s structure – though Abbott has not provided any details on when or how this wall will be built.

Abbott is up for reelection in 2022 and nabbed Trump’s endorsement at the start of the month.

Trump, who has begun making appearances and holding rallies after months out of the public eye, said in a statement Tuesday that Abbott invited him on an official trip to the border on June 30 and he accepted. He railed against the Biden administration, repeating familiar conservative talking points on the issue and calling the border region an “unmitigated disaster zone.”

President Joe Biden has kept largely in place a restrictive Trump-era public health order that allows border agents to immediately expel migrants caught crossing the border – though Biden formally exempted unaccompanied children from the policy. Border encounters rose in 2020 under Trump and have climbed more sharply under Biden this year, though recidivism has skyrocketed because of the border order, making it difficult to estimate the actual number of migrants who have attempted to cross into the country.
