Here's the latest on the ongoing border crisis and the potential running mates for Donald Trump's 2024 presidential campaign.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents continue to seize record amounts of fentanyl, methamphetamine, weapons, and ammunition at the Mariposa Port of Entry in Nogales, Arizona. In May alone, agents seized enough lethal drugs to kill 28.5 million people, highlighting the urgent need for stronger border security measures.

Former Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Mark Morgan, recently criticized President Biden's executive order limiting asylum claims, stating that it will only normalize border chaos. Morgan, a strong advocate for border security, has been a vocal critic of the Biden administration's handling of the border crisis.

Meanwhile, as Donald Trump prepares for his 2024 presidential campaign, the question of who will be his running mate is a hot topic among Republicans. According to a recent I&I/TIPP poll, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis remains the top choice for Trump's vice president, with 14% of Republican voters selecting him as their No. 1 pick. However, former U.N. Ambassador and North Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has jumped to 11% support, up three points from May.

Other potential running mates include author-entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott. However, the most popular answer among Republican voters was "Not sure," with 26% selecting this option.

As Trump continues to face legal challenges, including his recent conviction on 34 felonies, the choice of a running mate who can provide strong political and policy backing will be crucial. However, Trump's keen deal-making acumen and go-it-alone bravado may also lead him to select someone with selective demographic appeal to help win the election.

Regardless of who Trump chooses as his running mate, it is clear that the Republican party is united in its support for stronger border security measures and a return to conservative values. As the 2024 election approaches, Republicans will continue to advocate for policies that prioritize the safety and security of the American people.
