Former United States President Donald Trump is scheduled to visit the southern border of the United States with Mexico on June 30. He accepted the invitation of Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Trump made the announcement Tuesday, local time.
Trump’s successor, Joe Biden, suspended funding for the construction of massive border fences in January as one of his first policy actions. Building those fences is a major project of Trump, who during his 2016 election campaign promised to build a “beautiful wall” along the 3,200-mile southern border to evict undocumented immigrants and criminals.
Abbott announced last week that he would continue to build the wall in his home state, regardless of government plans in Washington, partly through crowd congestion. The governor is one of a group of Republicans who have accused Biden of creating a crisis with his more liberal immigration policy than Trump.
Trump described the border area as a “disaster area” in his communications. The new government gained a “strong” and “safe” border from him, but handed it over to regulators, criminals and kidnappers. “In a matter of weeks, they turned it into the worst border crisis in U.S. history.”
