ICYMI: Sen. Johnson on Fox News: Biden Administration Policies Are Fueling Border Crisis
WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) joined Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” to discuss President Biden’s failed policies that are exacerbating the crisis on the southern border and to highlight the real stories heard during yesterday’s press conference in Milwaukee on adverse effects to the Covid 19 vaccines.
The interview can be found here, and excerpts are below.
On Biden’s Border Crisis:
“They took her to a point in the border where she wouldn’t see the crisis, and so the press wouldn’t report on the crisis, of course, that’s what’s been going on … I offered an amendment to force the administration to actually build the 250 miles of wall that has been bought and paid for, about $2 billion. Every Democrat except Joe Manchin voted against that amendment. Again, what they have gotten good at, they have gotten very efficient at processing and dispersing illegal immigrants across this country. They are taking credit for that, but they’re just fueling the crisis, they’re exacerbating the problem.”
On Monday’s press conference on adverse effects to the vaccine:
“Everybody that we had at that event is pro-vaccine, three of them actually participated in the trials. The drug companies have largely abandoned them but that was Stephanie, her daughter is Maddie – think of how she feels, that she was given assurance this is incredibly safe, but her daughter has suffered severe neurological problems like the other four women as well. They have been suffering these problems for months, the CDC, the NIH is pretty well ignoring them. The drug companies are ignoring them. All they wanted was to be seen, to be heard, and to be believed so they can get treatment, so they can be cured and hopefully raise the issue so others won’t be similarly harmed.”
On Democrats’ reckless spending:
“What Democrats want to do is, they want to create more long-term entitlements that can never be turned down, can never be reduced, that will completely mortgage our children’s future. Republicans are absolutely for building infrastructure, here’s the deal that they have on the table right now; re-purpose the $700 billion from the last $1.9 trillion “Covid relief package” isn’t even being spent until 2022 through 2028. $7 billion would be more than enough, they could have that passed literally within a couple of days. They just reject it.”
