San Jose's sanctuary policy has been in the spotlight since city resident Bambi Larsen was killed earlier this year, allegedly by an undocumented immigrant with a criminal record. Critics of the policy--including the San Jose Police union--think police should notify federal immigration authorities when undocumented immigrants are released from jail.  The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors, however, recently voted to uphold the current policy that bars officials from notifying authorities. San Jose police chief Eddie Garcia joins us to share his perspective, as well as his priorities and vision for the force.

Guests:

Edgardo "Eddie" Garcia, chief of police, San Jose Police Department
