McALLEN, Texas — House Republicans want to make immigration a centerpiece of the 2022 midterms. They can’t do that without fully embracing Donald Trump — a reunion that they sealed on Wednesday.
The group of roughly two dozen GOP lawmakers got outsized attention for their trip to this border town simply because it was a precursor to Trump’s own visit. And Republicans soaked up that notice, with two immigration hard-liners even walking alongside migrants seeking asylum.
Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas), whose invitation to the border Trump accepted, set the tone with an effusive introduction of the former president as having done “more to secure the border than anybody and any president ever has.”
