The Show regularly checks in with the editorial board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

The Biden administration wants to end its use of Title 42 at the country’s southern border later this month, and some elected officials on both sides of the aisle are worried about that leading to a surge in migration.

In a column, the Republic’s editorial page editor, Phil Boas, argues that both parties have problems with their border policies.

The Show spoke with Boas to learn about what he calls a lose-lose for both Democrats and Republicans.
