Illegal Immigrant Camps In El Paso Cleaned Up Before Biden Visit

EL PASO, TEXAS - DECEMBER 22: Immigrants line up to present themselves to U.S. Border Patrol agents after spending the night camped alongside the U.S.-Mexico border fence on December 22, 2022 in El Paso, Texas. A spike in the number of migrants seeking asylum in the United States has challenged local, state and federal authorities. The numbers are expected to increase as the fate of the Title 42 authority to expel migrants remains in limbo pending a Supreme Court decision expected after Christmas.

  • The Border Patrol Union made its stance on the President’s trip known, tweeting on Friday: “El Paso being cleaned up as if nothing unusual ever happened there. Just in time for Biden’s ‘visit to the border’. We suggest just landing in Des Moines, Iowa and telling him it’s El Paso. He’ll never know the difference.”
  • In April 2021, Biden said his administration had “gotten control” of the border situation. Then, in September 2021, he said he planned on visiting the southern border “at some point.”
  • Now, some fifteen months later, the President is scheduled to make the trip.
