A leading border security advocacy group is throwing its support behind Sen. Ron Johnson (R., Wis.) in his reelection bid, citing the lawmaker's "unique insight into the root cause of the out-of-control flood of illegal immigrants and deadly drugs into our country."
The National Border Patrol Council, an advocacy group comprised of some 18,000 Border Patrol agents, said Johnson—a member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee—"has devoted more time and attention to securing our border than virtually any other member of Congress," according to a statement by the group provided to the Washington Free Beacon.
Johnson is facing a tough reelection battle in Wisconsin as Democrats try to flip the seat for challenger Mandela Barnes, the state's far-left lieutenant governor, who is being bankrolled by anti-police groups. In an election cycle where the porous southern border is likely to galvanize voters, Johnson's endorsement by the National Border Patrol Council could help tip the scales in his favor.
"The National Border Patrol Council has personally witnessed Senator Johnson's dedication to and care for all Wisconsinites," the group said in its statement. "Wisconsin and America need Senator Johnson's strong voice, caring spirit, and leadership in the U.S. Senate, which is why we are proud to endorse Senator Johnson to continue to be your advocate."
Johnson, the group said, was instrumental in Operation Safe Return, a bipartisan federal program initiated in 2019 that humanely deported illegals back to their countries of origin. The program was used as a model by the Department of Homeland Security when it developed its own programs to reduce the flow of undocumented children and families into America.
