President has faced persistent criticism that he has failed to address a surge of migrants from the south
Joe Biden will tackle a humanitarian crisis and one of his biggest political problems on Sunday when he visits El Paso, Texas, to take a first-hand look at the migrant surge on the southern US border.
Biden’s first trip to the border as president is timed to coincide with a summit with the leaders of Mexico and Canada early next week in Mexico City. Migration will feature heavily on the agenda at that meeting, especially in talks with Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
