“A system has to be established [with] legality but no citizenship for those with deep ties…”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

A system has to be established that establishes legality but no citizenship for those with deep ties, repatriates those with no family or community ties in a dignified way, and quickly sends home those who have committed criminal and other destructive acts."

“Syria does not deserve an ambassador; its protesters deserve support”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

"We must cease our verbal, moral, and diplomatic equivalence as between good and evil. Syria does not deserve an ambassador; its protesters deserve support; Israeli housing starts should not be put on the same moral plane as Hamas terror attacks; and China should be challenged on religious liberty rather than be given a veto on the human-rights activists we wish support."
