Foreign Correspondent on ABC – In the United States immigration has become one of the defining issues in this year’s presidential election race.

Former President Donald Trump has made cracking down on the border and deporting millions of people a key promise in his election campaign. And the surge of migrants into the country has pushed President Joe Biden to take a tougher stance on the issue.

This week on Foreign Correspondent, the ABC’s Washington Bureau Chief Jade Macmillan reports on America’s border wars. 

In the state of Texas, the Republican Governor has spent billions of dollars to control what he calls an “invasion” and has politicised the problem by sending busloads of immigrants to Democrat cities like New York. 

Jade travels to Eagle Pass in Texas, ground zero for the immigration issue, where migrants from Mexico are still trying to get through the heavily fortified riverbanks of the Rio Grande. 

And she visits New York where the city is at breaking point from an influx of migrants and where liberal views on immigration are being put to the test. 

This is a fascinating insight into one of the most critical issues dominating US politics this election year.
