Daniel Patterson, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility

For federal rangers in the Southwest, it's been a rough few months with threats of violence and open defiance of their rules.

Daniel Patterson is the southwest director of PEER and a former Bureau of Land Management employee. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss the details of the lawsuit.
