In a press release from his office earlier in January, Johnson said, “There’s a real easy solution: Have Democrats stop being hypocritical and put their money where their mouth is and fund better barriers. They work.
“[Democrats] supported, voted for about $8 billion of better barrier funding in the 2013 immigration reform, $40 billion in total in terms of border security. This is a growing problem. In 2012, a little over 11,000 people came into this country as family units. Last year, it was 107,000 people coming in as a family unit. In the first three months of this fiscal year it’s been 75,000 people.”
“Let’s face it, as a candidate, this is what [President Trump] talked about. If there is a mandate he can claim from his election, it’s better border security to keep this nation safe. Democrats have voted for this in the past. They’re being total hypocrites.”
