At a glance

  • Democratic Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs told reporters last week she would continue busing migrants out of state.
  • That program began under her Republican predecessor, Doug Ducey, last May.
  • Hobbs, who just took office, has been critical of states busing migrants to northern sanctuary cities, but apparently has decided she likes the program now that she’s governing a border state.
