EL PASO, Texas — President Joe Biden has kicked off his first trip to the U.S.-Mexico border while in office, landing at the El Paso International Airport Sunday afternoon.

KGUN 9 sent a team to El Paso where reporters learned the president first met Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

However, President Biden quickly left due to a busy schedule including:

  • Visiting a migrant facility
  • Touring the bridge of Americas
