President Joe Biden has landed in Brownsville.

This is Biden’s first trip to the Rio Grande Valley as border security and immigration continue to dominate political discourse as Biden runs against former President Donald Trump, who is expected to visit the border in Eagle Pass on Thursday.

In a news advisory, officials said that Biden will meet with Border Patrol agents, law enforcement and local leaders to discuss the Senate bipartisan border security agreement.
