A convoy of truckers is organizing to travel to multiple areas along the U.S.-Mexico border in the upcoming week. Their objective is to bring greater awareness to the immigration enforcement policies of President Joe Biden, who Republicans have criticized for facilitating millions of illegal border crossings.
In Texas, Governor Greg Abbott (R) seems to be openly challenging the administration and the U.S. Supreme Court by instructing the National Guard to construct razor wire barriers along a specific border area near Eagle Pass in order to halt the influx of migrants.
Rep. Keith Self (R-Texas) announced an upcoming event called the “Take Our Border Back” multi-day trucker caravan, scheduled to take place from January 29th to February 3rd. The routes will terminate at Eagle Pass, Texas, Yuma, Arizona, and San Ysidro, California.
The U.S. convoy plans to replicate the actions of protest movements in Canada during the COVID pandemic. In Canada, truckers congregated outside government offices in Ottawa and border checkpoints to express their opposition to the nation’s stringent vaccine recommendations. Following the protests, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau utilized the “Emergencies Act” of the country to officially declare a type of martial law, resulting in the removal of demonstrators by riot police and the apprehension of leaders whose bank accounts were also confiscated.
A Canadian judge recently declared that Trudeau’s invocation and utilization of the act was illegal.
Trucker groups have planned to gather in San Ysidro, California, Eagle Pass, Texas, and Yuma, Arizona, on February 3 in response to the border issue. Multiple meet-up dates have been scheduled in the following days, expecting truckers to travel from as far as Jacksonville, Florida, to take part in the protests.
The brochure for the “Take Our Border Back Convoy” asserts that the Biden Administration and the federal government are breaching Article IV, Section IV of the U.S. Constitution. The aforementioned language assigns the responsibility to the federal government to safeguard Americans from invasions.

The exit polling data on voters’ priorities during Tuesday’s primaries in New Hampshire does not augur well for President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party as they endeavor to shape the agenda for the upcoming November elections.
Recently, the White House made an announcement stating that Vice President Kamala Harris initiated a countrywide tour called the “Fight for Reproductive Freedoms” in Wisconsin. The primary objective of this tour is to guarantee broader availability of abortion services.
Harris expressed her belief that freedom is a crucial aspect of America’s promise, which included the right to make decisions regarding one’s own body, without interference from the government.
Her comments — and the White House’s emphasis on abortion — follow the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last year to overturn Roe v. Wade, determining that the matter should always have been under the jurisdiction of individual states.
Based on CBS News’ exit polling conducted during the New Hampshire primary, the predominant concerns among voters are the illegal immigration dilemma at the southern border of the country and the state of the economy.
The economy and immigration are the biggest concerns for voters in the New Hampshire primary. The outlet reported that these are the identical concerns that held the highest significance for Iowa GOP caucus participants. “Immigration serves as a catalyst, especially for individuals who support Trump.”
According to The Messenger, a recent survey shows that Trump now has a seven-point advantage over Biden in terms of top-of-mind concerns for primary voters.
The online poll, which took place from January 17th to 21st and involved 3,034 registered voters, revealed that Trump had a 48% to 41% lead over Biden, with 11% of people still unsure. The outcome fell beyond the margin of error of the poll, which was 1.8 percentage points. This information was revealed by the outlet based on a survey conducted in collaboration with the HarrisX polling organization.
The support for Biden and Trump was primarily divided along partisan lines. Trump received support from 90% of Republicans, while Biden received support from 82% of Democrats. The publication reported that 43% of Independents expressed support for Trump, while 36% supported another candidate. Additionally, 22% of Independents remained uncertain.
