Senator Ron Johnson sides with Trump, calls border “out of control”

(WQOW) — Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) is siding with President Donald Trump, saying there is a crisis at the U.S. – Mexico border.

Sen. Johnson told ABC News, “This is completely out of control, and anyone who says this is not a crisis – you try going down to the border and dealing with 4,000 people a day.”

On Friday, the president tweeted about the situation, saying he’ll close the southern border, or portions of it, next week if Mexico doesn’t stop all illegal immigration.

Sen. Johnson seemed to break with the president on that issue. He said ordering the border to be closed is easier said than done.
