Videoconferencing for attorneys during the TSA crisis

Standing in Your Shoes. A message from Secretary Johnson about the men and women of TSA → “On Thursday, I worked alongside the men and women of the Transportation Security Administration at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport. I interacted with passengers and addressed their questions, and even helped a family get to their gate on time. These are just a sampling of the essential tasks that the men and women of TSA perform each and every day as they stand on the front lines of our nation’s aviation security.
