Current undocumented residents need to be prioritized to determine which need to be deported and which should be given legal residency. Any arrests or criminal activity should be disqualifying for legal status. Factors such as education and employment as well as home or business ownership should be metrics considered in making that determination. We need to migrate (no pun intended) to a more merit based system that seeks to attract and retain the knowledge and talent we need to benefit our society. Needless red tape needs to be eliminated as well as chain migration and the diversity visa lottery. Our borders need to be secured not only to reduce illegal immigration but also to reduce the flow of illegal drugs and human trafficking and illegal exploitation - all of which must be diligently and fervently combatted.
Those already legally on the waiting list should have absolute priority over anyone here illegally. Selection process must be streamlined AND made more secure and efficient.
There are so many possible scenarios but in general whenever it is in our national security interest to do so or when it is required of us under our existing commitments and/or to assist our allies.
In general I support the elimination of regulations and federal policies that stifle economic freedom. I would advocate for laws and agency regulations that are in place to merely benefit one special interest group to the detriment of others be eliminated. There are so many croney capital special interest big donor exceptions and carve outs that act to suppress overall economic activity for the benefit of a select few.
I believe in representation of all regardless of political ideology. All my proposals seek to help all constituents and Americans. I am more than willing to participate in any public forum. I would be completely available and approachable and responsive to all constituents and would have an open door policy as well as a 100% meeting policy. I would like to have monthly or quarterly in person in district meetings as well as weekly or bi-monthly video town halls.
I support legislation that will bring fairness and transparency to medical pricing and billing practices as well as that which would require any medical or drug supplier to sell to the U.S. Government and U.S. buyers for no more than they sell to buyers from outside the U.S.
Taxes, Healthcare, Infrastructure, Immigration, National Security.
There are several other issues on my website - barone4congress2018.com/issues - that I outline several detailed proposals for. Most all of the specific proposals I outline are ones that help all Americans without increasing taxes or Government expenses.
