Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano joins Judy Woodruff on the PBS NEWSHOUR for an interview on Friday, May 13, 2011. In the aftermath of the killing of Osama bin Laden and the trove of intelligence captured by Navy Seals from his Abbottabad compound, we’ll get the latest on what we have learned about al Qaida’s threat to the United States and what steps are being taken by the government in response to the intelligence gathered. And, as the president’s point person on immigration and border security, we’ll hear how the Obama administration plans to turn the goals the president put forth this week into legislative action.
