Sheriff Dart pushes investigation into drug house

In early April, reporter Adriana Cardona-Maguigad began to unspool a story about drug addicts sent from Puerto Rico to Chicago by various municipalities on the island.

We’ve spoken with the acting director of the Illinois Department of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse and a state senator. Now Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart has called for a federal investigation and he joins us to explain. (Flickr/nerdcoregirl)
