No amnesty

It is the duty and responsibility of the President and Congress to enforce our immigration laws. I am opposed to any attempt to trade enforcement for amnesty for the so-called dreamers to compete and take jobs from Americans and those here legally. We tried this trade in 1986 and the result is the 12+ million illegal aliens currently in the United States. It didn’t work then and it won’t work now.

Ensure border funding is approved

I urge you to not sign any relevant spending legislation that does not fund the border requests listed in the White House’s FY2018 proposed budget. For too long, the federal government has ignored border security, and I’m confident that the President’s request for funding would reduce illegal immigration at the border and strengthen national security.

Ban all utility-scale renewable energy projects

I am strongly in favor of protecting the human, economic and environmental values of our desert communities. Therefore I support a Renewable Energy and Conservation Element of the General Plan that restricts utility-scale renewable energy projects to the five severely degraded areas identified by the Board of Supervisors in its February 2016 Resolution to the BLM: Amboy, El Mirage, Hinkley, Kramer Junction, and Trona.
