Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de KPBS and the League of Women Voters (San Diego and North County San Diego chapters) (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?
Respuesta de Richard Kahle:

Yes.

Congress and the President need to make a deal.

A reasonable compromise would authorize lawful permanent residency (a green card) to the roughly 800,000 who qualify for Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) AND appropriate $5 billion ($1 billion per year for 5 years) for construction on the border. 

 

Do you support expanding the current border wall between U.S. and Mexico? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Richard Kahle:

Yes.

Do you support creating additional regulations on gun ownership? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Richard Kahle:

Yes.

I support background checks for every transfer of a firearm.  

Firearm transfers to spouses, adult children, or adult grandchildren should be the only exemption to this requirement, provided that the receiver is not in a prohibited category and the firearm is legal to possess.   The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) must be improved.   Semi-annual audits with state and local law enforcement must ensure all records are accurate and timely. Severe mental disorders, as determined by a court or other lawful authority must be reported to NICS.     It’s important to understand that NICS is not used to establish a federal firearm registry, and information regarding allowable firearm transfers is destroyed in accordance with federal law.   We must ban any device that turns a firearm into a machine gun, such as bump stocks.
Should the U.S. remain in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Richard Kahle:

Yes.

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?
Respuesta de Richard Kahle:

No. 

The federal government already generates over $40 billion a year from gas tax revenue.  Those funds, which we already have, need to be allocated and prioritized.

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages secure affordable health care?
