Ron Johnson is working hard on real solutions to keep Wisconsin communities safe. As Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, he’s helped pass bills to strengthen our national security, from keeping terrorists out of the United States to seeking more information on the Orlando terrorist to supporting the National Defense Authorization Act. Bottom line: Ron is getting results for the people of Wisconsin.
- Supporting the Troops: Ron has voted for every National Defense Authorization Act since he’s been in the Senate – a crucial piece of legislation that guides our military strategy and gives our troops the resources they need to defeat our enemies.
- Seeking Information on Orlando Terrorist: Ron has sent letters to the FBI, Facebook, and the terrorist’s former employer seeking more information that will help the investigation and prevent future attacks.
- Destroying ISIS: Ron led in calling for a comprehensive strategy to destroy ISIS, including the United States assembling a coalition of international allies – similar to the successful strategy of President George H.W. Bush in the first Gulf War – to invade ISIS territory.
- Supporting Terrorist Surveillance: Ron supports having a strong intelligence-gathering capability to make sure law enforcement and our military have the tools they need to help prevent attacks – including those by homegrown and other lone wolf terrorists who act alone. He also supports keeping Guantanamo Bay open to help detain and question the worst terrorists we capture.
- Winning the Cyber War Against Terrorism: Ron helped pass legislation to deal with the threat of cyber-attacks, and used his committee to examine how ISIS uses social media to encourage terrorist activity all across the globe.
- Keeping Terrorists Out: To address foreign threats as opposed to homegrown terrorism, Ron helped pass a law through Congress to reform our visa waiver program, introduced the leading proposal to make sure Syrian refugees are fully vetted, and is working to secure the border.
- Opposing the Iran Deal: Ron not only voted against the Iran deal, he fought for it to be considered as a U.S. treaty, arguing that it was unwise to inject billions of dollars into the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism.
