Gov. Greg Abbott will visit the Rio Grande Valley on Tuesday to tour the border. 

The governor plans to meet with U.S. Border Patrol, the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas National Guard to discuss border security. 

A press conference will be held at Anzaldua Park in Mission at 12:00 p.m. CT.
