Johnson Visits Border Again

On Friday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) visited McAllen, Texas to witness first-hand the horrors of Joe Biden’s border crisis. As the former Chairman of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, Sen Johnson visited the border several times, most recently in March 2021.

President Joe Biden has not yet visited the border as President. 

While in Texas, Sen. Johnson participated in a night tour with law enforcement and an aerial tour led by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Additionally, he met with local landowners to discuss the impact of open borders on Texas communities, spoke with CBP about the challenges they face while securing the border and received a briefing from Texas National Guard and Texas Department of Public Safety about state efforts to maintain safety and security along the 1,254 mile border.

Following his visit, Sen. Johnson participated in a press conference with his Senate Republican colleagues.
