DHS Secretary Johnson baffled by 'absurd' budget conversation

A vote in the Senate could come as early as Thursday on a bill that would fund the Homeland Security Department beyond this Friday. If passed, the bill would still have to clear the House, before being sent to the President's desk. While Congress was busy making moves Wednesday, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson went on the offensive to ensure Congress doesn't shut down his department. 30,000 DHS workers would be sent home and the trickle-down effect on state and local governments and law enforcement organizations would worsen if Congress doesn't pass a bill, Johnson said.
