Tucson is bracing for street releases of migrants

Officials in Tucson are bracing for street releases of migrants in their community as federal funding dries up at the end of March. It comes after an unprecedented effort to stave this off.

Emily Bregel is covering the story for the Arizona Daily Star and she joined The Show to talk more about it.
