Earlier this week, a Phoenix hotel — the Hampton Inn Phoenix-Airport North — released a statement confirming it had been used as a place to house migrant children.

The hotel was being surreptitiously used by a private contractor hired by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The Hampton Inn has also said “the group is no longer staying at the hotel and the property has canceled all future business with this private contractor.”

To learn more, The Show talked with Daniel Gonzalez, who covers immigration for the Arizona Republic.
