Issues That Matter To You
Our veterans and their families have made the utmost sacrifice to keep our nation free and out of harm's way. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the brave men and women who have served our great nation. We can do better for them as a nation. As a member of the 82nd Airborne division, Francisco understands the struggles of veterans and will work to make the VA more efficient, effective and accountable.
Stopping Illegal Immigration
We are a country created and built on immigrants. The United States welcomes all immigrants,but it must be done through legal means. Illegal immigration is a threat to our national security. Migration, specifically along our southern border, is a point of entry for drug smuggling and human trafficking and must end. Francisco Rios will work in Congress to establish policies that will stop illegal immigration into our country and will advocate for the completion of the border wall to deter illegal immigration at our southern border .
Our national debt is over $27 trillion, which includes debt held by the public as well as other government accounts. This is one of our greatest national security threats. We must stop our reckless spending now. Our future and future generations of Americans depend on it. When elected to office, Francisco Rios will support a balanced budget amendment that will reign in spending if Congress fails to maintain a balanced budget.
Congressional Accountability & Reform
Congressional approval rating is at just 15%. Congress’ inability to get things done for the American people is primarily because Congress is not held accountable for their actions. Reform is imperative. When elected to Congress Francisco Rios will propose term limits for Congress; four terms for the House of Representatives and two terms for the Senate. As a result of Francisco’s plan to reform Congress, we will attract true leaders who are more interested in serving their constituents.
