QUESTION OF THE DAY: Will border policy be the biggest issue in the 2024 presidential election?



Both leading candidates for the 2024 presidential election -- President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump -- made trips to the southern border this week.

Discussions about migrants crossing the border has been a hot political issue within the past several weeks, with Gov. Mike Parson announcing he is sending more than 200 Missouri National Guardsmen to Texas, citing fentanyl as a reason. The Missouri House Budget Committee approved $2.2 million for the deployments to the border.

In early February United States senators unveiled a long-awaited cross-party bill that aims to combat illegal immigration at the US-Mexico border and allow for new aid to Ukraine and Israel. The bill received intense backlash from conservatives, who say the border policy isn't good enough.

Do you think border policy will be the biggest issue in the 2024 election? Or will it be something else? Let us know in poll and in the comments.
