Inside the Walmart that's now a shelter for migrant children

Hosted by  • 

President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy has led to more than 1300 kids being separated from their families at the border. Many of those kids end up in government shelters. A Walmart in Brownsville, Texas has been converted into a shelter called Casa Padre. We learn what life is like inside. We also speak with a man who quit his job at an Arizona shelter after being forced to tell kids they can’t hug.
