Texas law would allow police to arrest, deport people they believe entered the U.S. illegally

A controversial Texas law that would allow local police to arrest, detain and deport people they thought had entered the U.S. illegally is the subject of an appeals court hearing on Wednesday.

Reporter Julian Aguilar has been following the case and joins us.
