An inside look at shelters in Texas and Arizona holding migrant children separated from their parents

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. It’s called Casa Padre. We learn what life is like inside. We also speak with one former worker at a shelter in Arizona.
