Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has indicated that the Port Isabel Detention Center in south Texas could be the site of migrant family reunifications, a facility that human rights attorney Sara E. Dill likens to a prison.

Dill (@SEDLAW15) joins Here & Now‘s Lisa Mullins to discuss Port Isabel and her efforts advising some migrant parents who are currently separated from their children and being held there.
