Sen. Ron Johnson: American People Support Securing Our Borders for a Host of Reasons

‘I think the American people have always been completely behind that’

EXCERPT:

JOHNSON: "I’ve always believed the American people support securing our borders for a host of reasons: National security, public health and safety, drug trafficking, as well as if we're ever going to fix our legal immigration system we have to be able to control our borders. So I think the American people have always been completely behind that. Democrats give it lip service. Every Democrat on my committee say, 'Oh, we absolutely want to secure the border.' Okay, provide funding for better barriers, provide funding for additional Border Patrol agents and let’s fix those laws that incentivize illegal immigration."
