For decades, McGonigle Canyon has been home to migrant farm workers. Now San Diego Police say they’ll arrest anyone on the land for trespassing. As a result, about 175 migrant farm workers don’t have anywhere to sleep. On Saturday, about 150 members of the anti-illegal immigration group Minutemen gathered on the canyon rim and called for the workers to be deported. Host Gloria Penner talks with KPBS border reporter Amy Isackson, who has been following the story. Guest
