Biden will visit Arizona today to tout the CHIPS and Science Act and his policies dealing with manufacturing.

During Monday's press conference, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden will not go to see their self-inflicted border crisis because he will not partake in a political stunt.

"I want to be very clear here, the president's trip tomorrow is about the American manufacturing boom. We're seeing all across the country, thanks to again, his economic polices, again," Jean-Pierre said.

Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot criticized Biden for not visiting the impacted parts of the state, saying it was a "shame."
