Tony supports a strong national defense and foreign policy based on the principles of American military strength, active protection of our economy, and constant advocacy for our core values around the globe.
The world looks to America for leadership and guidance as we fight a rise in terrorism, intellectual theft, human rights violations, and dictatorship. America has the most formidable military in the world, and we must maintain constant support to our warriors in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and Intelligence community to ensure they successfully combat our adversaries. Improving military strength stems from increasing troop levels, increasing the size of the Navy (to 350 ships), and providing state of the art technology to our support elements.
Protecting the global economic environment is imperative to travel and trade as Americans depend on the ability to transit freely in the international marketplace. Chaos across the globe weakens American economic power by making it unsafe for Americans who live and work abroad. Tony believes the American dream is our greatest asset as a nation and must be supported through policies based on democratic principles, defense of human rights, and protection of the sovereignty of our allies. As the leader of the free world, we must advocate for peace and prosperity for all those seeking a better life.
Tony unequivocally supports the right to keep and bear arms. He will always support our 2nd Amendment rights and advocate in any forum when they are infringed upon.
Our immigration system is broken. There’s no doubt in my mind that immigration reform starts with southern border security. Tony supports the construction of a border wall where appropriate, enhanced use of technology to cover vast rural areas, increasing manpower along the border, and a modern entry/exit program. Ultimately, we MUST adopt an ‘all-of-the-above’ approach to secure the border and keep our families safe.
Washington has been talking about it for years, but Congress failed to make it a reality. As your Congressman, Tony will fight for increased border security and make our national security a top priority.
