There were new developments this week in the story of thousands of Central American minors being held in U.S. Border Patrol detention. Mid-week, plans to move some of the children to a temporary camp in Oracle, Ariz. were put on hold, there were reports of telephone scammers trying to take advantage of the situation, and a cabinet-level member of the Mexican government made a statement about illegal migration traffic.

Fernanda Echavarri, who's been covering the issue, talks about these aspects of the story with Arizona Spotlight host Mark McLemore.
