San Diego – Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, joined Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Attorney General Jeff Sessions during a visit to the southwest border near San Diego Friday. During the visit, Chairman Johnson received a firsthand look at the areas where updated fencing is needed and spoke with border patrol agents and DOJ officials about what needs to be done at the border to keep America safe.
“The Department of Homeland Security is an agency that has been troubled and plagued by low morale” Johnson said. “The men and women that have the courage to enforce our laws have not been given the authority to do that. I’m glad to partner with Secretary Kelly and Attorney General Sessions who are giving our law enforcement agencies the opportunity to enforce our laws, secure our border, and keep our nation safe.”
