RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas (KVEO) — President Donald Trump is scheduled to visit the Rio Grande Valley on Tuesday.

Sources tell KVEO that Trump will land in Harlingen on Tuesday at an unconfirmed time and then take a helicopter to McAllen.

The Secret Service has met with the Harlingen Police Department and the McAllen Police Department to coordinate the event.

According to the Associated Press, Trump will visit Alamo and “will mark the completion of 400 miles of border wall and his administration’s efforts to reform what the White House described as the nation’s broken immigration system,” said the article.

This will be the sitting president’s second trip to the Rio Grande Valley during his presidency.

Trump first visited the RGV in 2019 to meet with border security officials about the border wall.
