After nearly two years in office and watching his disastrous immigration policies wreak havoc on this great nation, President Joe Biden finally took a few hours out of his not-so-busy schedule to visit the southern border city of El Paso, Texas.
However, Biden clearly didn't see the full scale of the illegal immigration problem at the nation's southern border, as the Daily Mail reported that El Paso city officials spent the previous two nights before Biden's visit essentially sanitizing the streets of illegal, their belongings, and makeshift encampments.
U.S. Border Patrol agents, especially those who work in the sector and saw what the streets of El Paso looked like just days before the president's visit, were understandably furious that Biden was seeing a completely different picture on the ground.
A volunteer at a local church where illegals frequent, given its sanctuary status, said that the clean-up efforts were for Biden and the photo ops.
"It's a dog and pony show," a Sacred Heart Church volunteer said. "They've cleaned it all up for him."
Social media users posted "before and after" images of the same streets in El Paso. The difference was astonishing, and truly lends credence to the possibility that city officials were instructed to clean up prior to the president's stop.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), said Biden and his White House handlers were also well aware that this time of year, encounters between federal law enforcement and illegal migrants usually dips to yearly lows.
"Biden has all those figures. He knows all the trends. He knows when the best time to come to the border. And he knows that the beginning of January is absolutely the best time," Judd said.
The NBPC slammed Biden and the administration in a series of tweets.
"El Paso being cleaned up as if nothing unusual ever happened there. Just in time for Biden's "visit to the border". We suggest just landing in Des Moines, Iowa and telling him it's El Paso. He'll never know the difference," on tweet read.

While El Paso officials told the Daily Mail that the clean-up efforts downtown was simply a coincidence in relation to the president's visit, it's clear that the White House wanted the cleanest photo ops possible.
That way, during the coming weeks at the White House press briefing, they can continue to lie and blame right-leaning media networks like Fox News for overhyping the very serious and real immigration crisis.
