Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) said he’s “concerned” Canada’s new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, has tripled the number of Syrian refugees allowed in the country, putting at risk the United States for potential terrorists to cross the border. He was asked by John Catsimatidis, the host of “The Cats Roundtable” on AM 970 in New York if he was “concerned” about the situation. And Johnson’s reply? “Of course, with [Trudea’s] announced plan of basically tripling the number of refugees to bring in,” he said, Breitbart reported.
