Swamp Notes: Biden and Trump’s immigration duel

The issue of immigration might be Donald Trump’s biggest political boon ahead of the US election in November, but President Joe Biden went to the US-Mexico border this week to try to change the narrative. The FT’s Houston correspondent, Myles McCormick, and US political news editor, Derek Brower, join this week’s Swamp Notes to examine whose case voters find more convincing. Credit: Fox10, PBS NewsHour
