Brownsville news, Texas news.

President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump both visited southern Texas cities on Thursday highlighting the importance of immigration as a key 2024 election issue ahead of the Super Tuesday primary.

Biden made his way to Brownsville while Trump visited Eagle Pass. Two border cities that are about a five-hour drive apart in Texas.

The president received operations briefing from Homeland Security agents as he walked a stretch of the border.

“I want the American people to know what we’re trying to get done,” Biden told officials at the scene. “We can’t afford not to do this.”

    Trump, in the meanwhile, continued his attacks on illegal immigrants calling them “terrorists” and “criminals.”

    “The United States of America is being invaded,” he added. “This is like a war.” “They’re being let into our country and it’s horrible. It’s horrible.”
