The 287(g) Program in Las Vegas

Since 2008 the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has been authorized to detain illegal immigrants under a partnership with the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement program. A new report finds that Metro's treatment of undocumented aliens has been tempered by good judgment and fairness. We talk with an author of the report who researched conditions in Las Vegas.
