United States – Both Joe Biden and Donald Trump plan to stop and visit at the US-Mexico border this week, highlighting just how important of an issue illegal immigration has become as they try to march to a likely general election rematch in November.

Biden’s Visit to Brownsville

Biden is expected to leave for Brownsville, Texas, on Thursday and will hold talks with U.S. Border Patrol agents, law enforcement, and local leaders, according to a White House official.

The next day’s schedule also sees a former Republican President Donald Trump, whose border policy and the quantity of illegal immigrants crossing into the U.S. has made him a harsh critic of his Democratic successor, go to Eagle Pass in Texas, as per a Trump campaign aide.

Trump could be the next Republican presidential nominee after the few waves of primary victories against former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, which was his last competitor. The Trump campaign has decided to target Biden. The issues affecting Biden are immigration and especially illegal immigrants.

Democrats’ president’s support index fell to 38% due to the immigration problems in January, the latest election shows in a survey from Reuters.

Impact on Biden’s Support

The survey revealed the worrying issue with immigration, as 17% of people we surveyed chose it as the most important problem in the USA today, above the 11% that answered the question in this manner in December. It was the problem number one of Republican respondents, which 36% said to be the top concern, is more than the 29% who said to be afraid of the economy.

Trump Campaign Targets Biden on Immigration

A Trump aide said Biden showing up at the border with Trump on the same day “shows just how big of a problem this is for him.”

The United States president will remind the congressional Republicans that they must come up with a budget to accommodate more U.S. Border Patrol agents, more asylum officers, drug smuggling technology, and much more, as the White House said.
