US border surge crisis is a ‘domestic issue not going well for Biden’

The migrant surge at the US-Mexico border is a “domestic issue that isn’t going well” for President Joe Biden as protesters interrupted a Georgia rally to call for the closure for detention centres, according to US Studies Centre CEO Simon Jackman. “You saw at the rally the cross pressure, the left of the Democratic base are fired up about a lot of issues but this is one of them and they really want a big, big point of difference between the Trump administration and the Biden administration,” he told Sky News. Mr Jackman said President Biden’s humanitarian efforts were hindered by insecure centrist House representatives who were worried about their re-election prospects. “Those midterm elections are coming up in Congress only next November and already some of those centrist House members, that’s some of the issues in particular they’re looking for, how vulnerable they might be and that’s the handbrake on Biden.”
