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.

Host: Mina Kim

Guests:

  • Don Barich, community activist representing groups including the Liberty Volunteers, Conservative Forum and Tea Party Patriots of Silicon Valley
