The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

Both Sen. Kyrsten Sinema and Gov. Doug Ducey have attached themselves to actions related to solving — or at least improving — the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Sinema is focused on the asylum system, while Ducey emphasizes increased law enforcement.

Bob Robb of the Republic wrote about the respective ideas. The Show spoke with Phil Boas, the paper’s editorial page editor, about the column.
