Former NFL star and Hall-of-Famer Brian Urlacher visited the U.S.-Mexico border just weeks after President Biden said "there are more important things going on," according to a report from Daily Caller.
Brian Urlacher, a former Chicago Bear, accompanied by Nick Lowery and Randy Grimes, visited Border Patrol agents in Yuma, Arizona, to express appreciation for their work amid high levels of illegal immigration. In contrast, President Joe Biden has not yet visited the U.S.-Mexico border and stated on December 6 that he had "more important things" to do than travel there.

According to the White House, Biden's last visit to the border was in 2008, when he "drove through" El Paso, Texas.
Brian Urlacher had previously visited the border alone, but it is not reported that Nick Lowery or Randy Grimes accompanied him on this trip, according to Urlacher's Instagram. In the 2022 fiscal year, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountered a record number of more than 2.3 million migrants at the border.
Border Patrol agents are struggling with high levels of workload and low morale, according to multiple officials who have recently spoken with the DCNF. One agent in Arizona, who was not authorized to speak, told the DCNF that President Biden's absence on the border has only exacerbated the situation.

James Woods Reveals What He Thinks the Democrats Will Do in 2024
It's hard to imagine President Joe Biden running for re-election in 2024. With all of the Biden gaffes and brain freezes, it's hard to imagine anyone wants him leading our country four years from now.
That being said, who knows what the Democrats are going to do in 2024. California Governor Gavin Newsom has repeatedly denied he will run for president. Kamala Harris has botched her VP position so badly she's not even under consideration. Who the heck knows?
