Commander of tent city holding migrant kids calls zero-tolerance policy "a dumb, stupid decision"

CBS News correspondent Mireya Villarreal went on a guided tour of a Texas "tent city" that is housing hundreds of immigrant children.

During the tour, the commander in charge said the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy was "a dumb, stupid decision" and it "should never have happened." Villarreal joins CBSN to also talk about the complicated legal process parents are going through to be reunited with their children.
