What’s the impact for national security when those who work to keep us safe aren’t getting paid? Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the new chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, says DHHS and TSA employees are still doing their jobs. He tells Judy Woodruff that a physical wall would conflict with American values and that it’s “unfortunate” the president is relying on fear to make policy.
