Congressman Mike Levin, who was elected to represent San Diego County's 49th Congressional District, was sworn into office last week amid one of the longest government shutdowns in recent history.

Funding for a border wall has been the main sticking point in negotiations to reopen the government.

On Tuesday, President Trump is scheduled to give a prime-time address and make the case for the wall. The president is also planning to make a trip to the southern border later in the week.

Levin talks with Midday Edition Tuesday about his first week on the job and where things stand on efforts to reopen the government.
