EL PASO, Tex. (NBC, KYMA/KECY) - President Biden visited the U.S.-Mexico border on Sunday for the first time since taking office.

During his visit, the President visited a port of entry and walked along a border wall that separates El Paso from mexico.

The rust-colored wall along the dirt path that Biden walked along was about 18-feet high.

Joining Biden were Border Patrol officers, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Democratic Texas Representative Henry Cuellar.

The President also visited a migrant services center.

He spoke with workers in front of a Salvation Army sign that said "Welcome" and they showed packages with socks, shoes, clothes, and other goods.
