#UMM: Is now a good time to remind everyone that RON JOHNSON is the CHAIRMAN of the Senate Homeland Security Committee...?

You know, the committee that oversees DHS, the department in charge of SECURING OUR ELECTIONS...
#FLAG: In April, Sen. Ron Johnson was confronted about Russian election interference and DHS's primary role in election security and preventing it.

He claimed he cares about Russian election interference, but quickly downplayed it.

"Let's not blow this thing out of proportion."
#NOTE: As Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Johnson has not held a single hearing dedicated to #ElectionSecurity this year.

Not after the Mueller Report.

Not after DHS leadership was gutted.

Not after reports that it's not a priority.

#REDFLAG: In Feb, after Trump was forced to reopen the government for 3 weeks, following the 35 day #TrumpShutdown...

...a bipartisan committee hashed out an immigration funding compromise to avoid another one.

But...WHERE. DID. THE. MONEY. GO?

#ATTN: The bipartisan deal included:

πŸ”Ή $1.375B β€” 55 miles of New Fencing.
πŸ”Ή $524.2M β€” Ports of Entry + 600 New Border Agents.
πŸ”Ή $415M β€” Humanitarian Aid at Border.

AND...

πŸ”Ή $563.4M β€” for Immigration Courts, (incl. $59M for) 75 NEW JUDGES.
πŸ”Ή $527M β€” Aid to Central America.
#FLAG: Congress JUST passed funding for 75 new Immigration Judges, largely to hear asylum claims.

Today, AG Bill Barr boasted about DOJ's progress...PRIOR to this year.

Yet, he's requesting $72M to hire 100 new judges in FY2020.

But...WHERE DID THE MONEY GO FROM THE LAST DEAL?
