Thompson: Government needs public’s help

Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, the ranking Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee, said on Sunday the government cannot prevent every terrorist attack and needs the public’s help to spot potential extremists.

“We’ve dealt with international terrorists who are trying to get here, but what about the people who are already here?” he said on ABC’s “This Week.” “That continues to be a day-in-day-out struggle.”
