Migrant families seeking asylum in the United States continue to be housed at Phoenix-area hotels, and Arizona’s top prosecutor questions whether that should be allowed.

One of the hotels is the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Phoenix/Chandler in Ahwatukee, which started operating in April. The former Homewood Suites hotel in Scottsdale just opened its doors to migrant families over the weekend.

Both hotels have been turned into “emergency family staging centers.”
