The Tohono O'odham Nation of Arizona is hosting a Congressional hearing today to focus on border issues.

The tribe is uniquely impacted because its reservation and traditional territory are divided by the U.S.-Mexico border. The tribe estimates 1,500 migrants cross the reservation daily. Drug smugglers also use the reservation to bring drugs into the U.S.
