President Biden comes to Chicago Wednesday.
Many, including elected Democratic local officials would rather he and Vice President Kamala Harris come to the border at Val Verde County (Del Rio) or Webb County (Laredo) on the Texas-Mexico border, far from the safer border crossings of El Paso
Webb County Judge Tano Tijerina (D, Laredo) headlined discussion of Biden Border Crisis Sunday night during the 2nd hour of Beyond the Beltway.
Sunday’s broadcast of Beyond the Beltway had guests focused on immigration in general and the most recent issues from Del Rio and the predominantly Haitian migration. Many of the Haitian migrants were bused to Laredo for processing and flights out of the Rio Grande Valley.
Laredo is about 180 miles down stream on the Rio Grande from Del Rio.
From a Thursday afternoon interview with Webb County Judge Tijerina on Fox News (note from McHenry County Blog, a Texas county judge is the equivalent of an Illinois county board chairman who’s elected at-large by the voters):
Andrew Polk, Jr., a talk radio host from El Paso’s KTSM also participated in the Biden Border Crisis discussion Sunday night.
