Santa Clara County would house as many as 50 unaccompanied immigrant children arriving at the Mexican border under a plan being considered by the county's Board of Supervisors. We'll discuss the proposal and hear from critics, who say it does nothing to address underlying problems with immigration.

Host: Mina Kim

Guests:

  • Don Barich, community activist representing groups including the Liberty Volunteers, Conservative Forum and Tea Party Patriots of Silicon Valley
  • Jeffrey Smith, county executive, Santa Clara County
