She also participates in the Committees on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions; Armed Forces; and the Special Committee on Aging. She also serves as Vice-Chair of the Democrat Conference.  

 

Senator Johnson serves as Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, and is member of the Committees on the Budget; Commerce, Science and Transportation; and Foreign Relations, where he serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on European and Regional Security Cooperation.

 

In both meetings, the officials discussed topics of mutual interest in the bilateral relationship, particularly immigration, the fight against organized crime, border security and trade.
