United States: Donald Trump takes his presidential campaign down to the border with Mexico on Sunday, as he seeks to double down on the hardline immigration policies that were a hallmark of his first White House term.

In recent weeks, the former president has ramped up his campaign rhetoric to extreme levels, warning that undocumented migrants are “poisoning the blood of our country” and denouncing his political opponents as “vermin.”Trump plans to visit the Texas-Mexico border on Sunday with Governor Greg Abbott, a like-minded advocate of tough immigration measures.The Texas legislature recently passed a bill that would make entry into the state without papers a crime punishable by up to two years in jail — or up to 20 years if the person refuses to leave the United States.The bill would allow Texas officers to arrest anyone they believed was in the state without proper documentation, a power that critics say is sure to be abused.Abbott has vowed to sign the measure into law. The Trump campaign has made clear that if the real estate tycoon is re-elected, he will engineer a tough crackdown of his own on the undocumented, reportedly including huge detention camps and mass deportations.Texas has been a reliably conservative bastion for Trump as he looks forward to the 2024 elections, and he holds huge leads both there and nationwide over his Republican rivals.Trump and Abbott blame President Joe Biden for the current migrant crisis, as thousands of people flow into the country from Latin American countries beset by crime, poverty and violence.
