TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has written a letter to President Barack Obama criticizing immigration officials for sending migrant families from Texas to Arizona and later dropping them off at Greyhound stations in Phoenix and Tucson. Brewer called the practice dangerous and unconscionable. She asked the president to provide details about the policy and whether it would continue.

>>Read Gov. Brewer's letter to President Obama

Border patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas transferred over 400 migrants to Arizona over Memorial Day weekend after becoming overwhelmed by the large number of families and unaccompanied minors caught crossing the border illegally.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officials then dropped off the families at Greyhound stations in Tucson and Phoenix.

Many were women with children. ICE by policy does not detain children. The migrants are required to report back to ICE.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
