    There is less than a month to go before midterm elections in the United States and one of the issues dominating the races is immigration.

    US President Donald Trump made it a signature part of his platform, first, as a candidate and now, as president.

    Texas is at the heart of the debate. Long a Republican stronghold, Donald Trump's immigration policies appear to have energised the Latinx and other minority populations in the state and they are not coming out to support the current administration.
