Biden says he will visit US-Mexico border 'at some point'
President Biden said Sunday that he intends to travel to the southern border “at some point,” telling reporters that he is in no rush to visit because “I know what’s going in those facilities” which have been operating far beyond capacity amid a troubling surge in migrants.
Republicans have laid blame on Biden for the surge after he rolled back a number of Trump-era immigration restrictions he deemed inhumane, including ending the “Remain-in-Mexico” policy and reinstating “catch-and-release.” Biden’s immigration agenda includes a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants, but the president last week urged migrants planning on embarking to the United States to hold off for the time being.
Asked Sunday why his message did little to quell the chaos at the border, Biden admitted that his administration can do a lot more to transmit that message to migrants making their way to the U.S.

Texas Tech coach Chris Beard’s late-game decisions questioned after loss to Arkansas
Texas Tech coach Chris Beard entered the men's NCAA Tournament with one of the best tourney winning percentages among the 68 coaches: A record of 9-3 following a 2018 Sweet 16 appearance and 2019 national runner-up finish. Before that, he led Arkansas Little Rock to a first-round upset in 2017.
On Sunday, his team – a dark-horse to get to the Final Four – succumbed to pressure in the closing stretch and watched Arkansas claim a down-to-the-wire 68-66 win and Sweet 16 ticket.
The Red Raiders (18-11) had their chances. Mac McClung missed a potential game-tying free throw with 1:15 left, and Terrence Shannon Jr. missed a point-blank layup that would have given Tech the lead with 37 seconds left.
But the biggest "what if" might have come on the very last play of the game, when Kyler Edwards' driving layup with three seconds left shot hard off the backboard. Arkansas' JD Notae grabbed the rebound to close out the game. Was Edwards fouled? Turner Sports analyst Charles Barkley thought so, saying as much on the broadcast.
