President Joe Biden will deliver a primetime speech to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday. Technically, it's not a State of the Union Address, but it will look and feel like one and it could be just as important.

Biden isn't a President who is seen very much by the public and there are many issues facing the United States that Biden needs to speak about. One of those issues? The crisis on the United States/Mexico border. The situation continues to spiral out of control and neither the President or Vice President have made a trip to the border or seemed to have made it a priority.

On Tuesday, Senator John Cornyn called on President Biden to release a plan for the border during Biden's speech on Wednesday night.

“I am hopeful that the President will finally announce a plan to address the crisis at our southern border because, so far, the Administration has been largely silent. The crisis at the southern border is real, it's big, and it's growing.”

 

“Make no mistake, there is a crisis at the border, and the policies of the Biden Administration helped make it worse. Despite warnings from folks on both sides of the aisle, the Administration revoked policies of the previous Administration without any alternative plan in its place. Making matters worse, they entirely failed to prepare for the obvious consequences.”

 

“Now, the question is, what are they going to do to address it? I believe the American people deserve to hear from President Biden, his outline of a plan to address the border crisis and to manage this surge of humanity in a fair and humane way.”

Cornyn went on to promote the Bipartisan Border Solutions Act and called for the President to read it and move forward on it.

Will the President address the border? He should and many around the world will be watching to see what he has to say.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
