Dear Sen. Johnson:

I am a believer in the separation of powers as outlined in the U.S. Constitution and think that the power of the purse is a function of the legislature and is not to be ceded to the executive branch.

In November 2014, you opposed President Obama’s overreach on immigration and it is my expectation that you will oppose President Trump’s equally egregious overreach with the emergency declaration for wall funding.

Putting principle above politics is the mark of a statesman and I expect that standard to be followed by all Wisconsin senators regardless of party.

David Sabin, Chippewa Falls
