Joe Biden is visiting the Democrat-run city of El Paso, Texas this weekend, which has been ground zero for the border crisis.
Naturally, they decided to finally clean up the migrant encampments for Biden’s visit.
Now Joe can stand in the center of town in front of cameras and pretend there’s no problem.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Report: Democrat-Run Border City Clears Out Migrant Encampments Ahead of Biden Visit
Democrat-run El Paso, Texas, is clearing out large migrant encampments from downtown streets ahead of a scheduled visit on Sunday by President Joe Biden.
Since last week, police have moved hundreds of migrants to less visible areas of the city, as carjackings, stolen property, and drug distribution spiked with the arrival of thousands of illegal immigrants, the Washington Examiner reported. Law enforcement agencies said businesses have struggled with crime as migrants, primarily from Venezuela, have camped out on city streets.
Biden is visiting the border city ahead of meetings next week in Mexico City with Canadian and Mexican leaders. His visit comes as his administration on Thursday unveiled a policy that permits 30,000 people per month from Venezuela, Cuba, Haiti, and Nicaragua to obtain temporary work in the United States. The new program will allow migrants to travel directly to the United States, bypassing an asylum application at the southern border, after applying on a mobile app.
Here’s a reminder of what El Paso has looked like in recent months.
Thousands of Venezuelan migrants have set up a makeshift camp in Ciudad Juárez across from El Paso, TX due to a change in immigration laws that allows Venezuelans to be deported to Mexico. Most of them are in limbo but have no plans to go back to Venezuela. pic.twitter.com/rQJX4eTZbb

Brenda and her parents are some of the hundreds of migrants living in the streets of downtown El Paso around Sacred Heart Parish. The makeshift camp has piles of blankets, strollers and tents lining both sides of a busy street. https://t.co/n46UqJTOIM

Biden won’t have the pleasure of seeing any of that.
