One Small Step toward Housing the Homeless

Hosted by

The LA City Council finally came through today on a promise made eight weeks ago to the homeless — declaring a "shelter crisis." But property owners in Venice are among those angry because of provisions that "decriminalize" homelessness to protect federal funding, and the council still doesn't know where to find $100 million to provide shelters and build new housing.  

Later on the program, half of America's governors and House Speaker Paul Ryan say refugees from Syria may be dangerous to Americans. We hear how screening for security is working now.
