HELP US BUILD A STRONG FUTURE FOR CALIFORNIA
Our platform is being built as we speak. Please stay up to date and informed by signing up for our email list.
The FAQ below are just a few of the top items which I would seek constituent input on and move to resolve if elected to the US Senate. If you have suggestions or would like other items addressed please contact us via email.
End The Dream Act, or DACA. Screening of Illegal residents. Provisions must be put in place protecting those children brought here under the most dire circumstances for sex trafficking, child labor, and other inhumane purposes. Many adults must be deported if working illegally, are here with fraudulent papers, and if they knowingly stayed within the United States illegally. As would be done in any civilized nation.
Build The Wall: Work with the Senate to resolve and move the project forward in tandem with national immigration enforcement initiatives to help deter both narcotic and human trafficking, and illegal entry. This would go hand in hand with addressing the Opiate crisis as it relates to the border.
Immigration Reform: Tighten the entry gap of recent years, and reduce entry numbers across the board, including processing and expediting of H 1-B and J-1Visas and the lottery system.
Gun Rights Initiative: I will vote against any gun measure which restrains law abiding citizens from legally procuring or owning firearms, especially military veterans and retired law enforcement. Proper laws for background checks are in place, review of those policies and initiatives should be done to ensure recent oversights which have cost lives are resolved and order is restored.
Budget: While budgets start in the House of Representatives, both the House and the Senate seem to continually push the deadline for the debt ceiling. I would aim to help restore order to the process of common sense reform and on time funding of the government. No more games.
Piggy Backing: End piggy backing of Legislation and pork. Deals and swaps for legislation have become commonplace at the expense of the taxpayer. I would aim to correct this.
CHIP: Address the funding issues that arose when Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, states like California let the federal government subsidize the program and reallocated funds elsewhere. When the ACA is gone, California will need to adjust its budget accordingly. This transition must be handled with care so heavily burdened states impoverished children can still receive care in the transition. While this issue may be resolved prior to election, the issue will be long standing as Health Care Reforms are adjusted over the next few years.
