SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The governor of California, attorney general and sheriff of Bexar County, Texas are calling for a Justice Department investigation into migrant flights into Sacramento.

The letter to Mr. Garland said that although there are separate investigations into violations of state law, the investigation spans at least five states and the Department of Justice should act.
