Ron has taken the lead as chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on pushing the Obama administration to pursue a comprehensive plan to destroy ISIS.
As Ron said shortly after the attacks in Paris, “These are attacks against civilization — they are attacks against us all. America must show leadership, strength and resolve as we stand with those who have stood with us from the beginning to preserve our liberty and our very way of life.” Check out these interviews Ron has done on the key issues we need to address to keep our country safe:

From the Appleton Post Crescant:
… “It’s high time that we make a commitment in the world that Islamic terrorists have got to be wiped off the face of the planet,” the Oshkosh Republican said in a telephone interview. “Because if we don’t, every day that ISIS survives, every day that they are not overtly losing, they are perceived as winners and perceived as winning and they’ll continue to inspire adherents to this barbarity.”
… Johnson wants the United States to assemble a coalition, much like the one former president George H.W. Bush put together for the Gulf War in 1990 to push Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait.
… Johnson said U.S. border security needs to be strengthened and he plans to hold a hearing as soon as possible to investigate the refugee resettlement process in the United States. One of the Paris attackers had a Syrian passport, and his fingerprints match those of someone who traveled through Greece last month, according to Parisian authorities.
