Donald Trump was in Eagle Pass, Texas on Thursday, when Joe Biden arrived in Brownsville, on the Mexican border. The two contenders for a new mandate gave opposing speeches on immigration.

Eagle Pass is the symbol of the dispute between the federal administration and the Republican Party. The governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, close to Donald Trump, had buoys armed with razors placed there to prevent migrants from crossing the Rio Grande, and since then elected officials and governors have been coming there to highlight the border issue.
