GOP Sen Ron Johnson: ‘Concerned’ Terrorists Could Enter Via Canada


On Sunday’s “The Cats Roundtable” AM 970 in New York, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) told host John Catsimatidis that he is a “concerned” over the fact that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has tripled Syrian refugee flow.


“Of course, with Prime Minister Trudeau’s announced plan of basically tripling the number of refugees to bring in. And on average, prior to this program, it would take about 62 months for Canada to properly vet a refugee. Now they’re going to triple the number they’re going to let in, and they’re going to do it in less than 12 months. So, yeah, I’m a little concerned that maybe Islamic terrorists could infiltrate that flow of refugees and then come across that very porous northern border.”

“Certainly our greatest threat really is what we call ‘special-interest aliens’ coming in from South and Central America coming through our porous southern border, but our northern border is probably more porous,” he added.

Johnson then blamed President Barack Obama for the “porous” borders because of his “feckless foreign policy.”

“The dangers we face in this world are growing. All of this is occurring because of President Obama’s feckless foreign policy.”
