Questions & Answers

Questions from KPBS and the League of Women Voters of North County San Diego (6)

Family reunification is a process that allows immigrants already residing in the U.S. to bring in additional family members. Do you support limiting this process? Why or why not?
Answer from Danielle St John:

No, I do not support limiting this process beyond allowing law-abiding people the right to be with their family. I believe we need to support all legal attempts to enter the country. We should also invest in advocate programs to help people who are already here without documentation through the process. We need to put humanity back into our whole immigration process.

 

Do you support expanding the current border wall between U.S. and Mexico? Why or why not?
Answer from Danielle St John:

No, I believe that blaming people with no money and no power is doing the people of this country a disservice, and the wall is indicative of demagoguery.  I think it is a very expensive and futile attempt at solving the wrong problem.

Do you support creating additional regulations on gun ownership? Why or why not?
Answer from Danielle St John:

No, we already have sufficient gun laws that are not being enforced.  This problem and many others can be explained very simply. There is more money and pressure being put on our representative from gun lobbying groups than by the people. Eliminating money from politics is the only way to fix our gun problem. 

 

Should the U.S. remain in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)? Why or why not?
Answer from Danielle St John:

I believe we should rethink most of our trade agreements. These agreements were not made with the people in mind, and were written to benefit big business.

Do you support raising the federal gas tax to improve the national transportation infrastructure (for example roads, train tracks, and bridges)? Why or why not?
Answer from Danielle St John:

No.  From 1998-2015, $21 trillion has gone missing from the Department of Defense alone. We need to either find that money and use it to fix our infrastructure, or admit that our tax system is a complete and total sham. We always seem to find money for war and corperate entitlement programs but never enough for the people.

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages secure affordable health care?
Answer from Danielle St John:

I think it is essential that we take profit out of healthcare. We need to realize that insuring people the same way as we do property should never have been legal. This system has created a super morbitly obese middle man that is crippling the people. I support a single payor system based off of the health coverage we provide for active duty military and their families.
