Roundtable: The Future of DACA; 'Human Rights Tragedy' on the Border

Hear from the Pima County sheriff, an immigration attorney and a border reporter.

Last week, Arizona 360 brought a trio of voices together to discuss immigration in Southern Arizona. We invited Pima County Sheriff Mark Napier, immigration attorney Patricia Mejia and The Arizona Republic border reporter Rafael Carranza for the roundtable discussion.    "What we don’t talk about enough, which is a major factor for us, is the human rights tragedy," said Napier. "My deputies recover about 150 bodies in the deserts of western Pima County, and those are only the bodies we recover. No one will ever know how many people are out there."   The discussion also touched on the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and how the issue could play out as midterm elections draw near.
