National Security

My Values:

Now more than ever, we need a smart, tough foreign policy agenda that protects the United
States and preserves our shared American values of privacy and liberty. Russia’s war in
Ukraine exacerbates our need for forward-thinking national security policies, robust domestic
energy options and strong support for our military personnel. National security extends to our
border as well, and that’s why I’ve supported bipartisan reforms to our immigration system and
targeted investments at the border. I will continue to do everything I can in Congress to protect
our national interests at home and abroad.

What I’ve Done:

  • I have voted to equip our military personnel with the 21st century tools they need to defend our nation and eliminate terrorist threats as efficiently and safely as possible.
  • I unequivocally condemned Vladimir Putin’s actions in Ukraine and will continue to support all efforts — economic, humanitarian and military — to stop this unprovoked violence and needless human suffering.
  • I have supported securing US energy independence by increasing homegrown renewable fuels production and pursuing an “all of the above” energy approach.
  • I have pushed for orderly, secure, and humane immigration policies, including cosponsoring the American Dream and Promise Act of 2019, creating a path for permanent residence for individuals within Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA).
  • I have voted to increase border security funding to ensure an orderly and safe southern border.
