A journalist from Texas offers a view from the border

Sergio Martínez-Beltrán

This interview originally aired on "In the Moment" on SDPB Radio.

In light of Gov. Kristi Noem's speech about the U.S.-Mexico border to the Legislature, we check in with a reporter from that area.

Sergio Martínez-Beltrán covers government and politics stories for NPR's The Texas Newsroom. He shares his perspective on Gov. Noem's speech and his experiences reporting on the border.

Plus, he discusses how state responses could conflict with federal law and why some people call the border a "warzone."
