Small businesses are the backbone of the 6th District of Texas. As the immediate former Assistant Administrator for the Office of Women’s Business Ownership at the U.S. Small Business Administration, I understand the arduous task of having to work underneath the weight of the federal government to gain access to capital to fund your dreams. I will work to eliminate any barriers to accessing small business loans to ensure that entrepreneurs can fund their dreams. Also, 92.6% of Texas firms who export products are small businesses. I have already worked with the former head of the Export-Import Bank to increase opportunities for small businesses who want to export their products and will continue to ensure TX-06 products are pre-eminently sold throughout the world.
As a first-generation Texan, the issue of immigration is deeply personal to me. The United States has the most generous immigration system in the world, yet Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and The Squad continue to prioritize the admittance of illegal immigrants ahead of those waiting in line and playing by the rules to come to this country legally. My parents waited 10 years to come to this country and anyone who comes into our country must wait too. We must enforce our immigration laws and protect our borders.
I am against the encroachment of the Second Amendment in any measure, any form, and of any kind. My fiancé Mike and I look forward to educating Washington, DC and defending this fundamental constitutional right.
Federal Spending and U.S. Economy
We expect American households and businesses to balance their checkbooks, and we must demand the same from the federal government. I support cutting unnecessary government spending, lowering taxes for all Americans, and reducing burdensome regulations to allow free-market principles to boost the economy.
I am committed to defeating the pandemic and returning the United States to the historically strong economy that was built by President Trump. President Trump created the lowest unemployment rate in the history of this country, especially among minorities. He worked to lift tens of thousands of Americans out of poverty.
I will fight Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional Democrats who are committed to keeping schools closed and businesses shut. We must open schools. We must open small businesses. We must open states. This pandemic cannot continue to prevent schools, businesses and our economy from re-opening.
As a Christian, baptized by Dr. Criswell at First Baptist Church of Dallas when I was 11 years-old, there is nothing more precious to me than human life. Life begins at conception and I oppose abortion in all forms. I oppose federal funding for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers, and I will fight to preserve the Hyde Amendment and prevent taxpayer funding of abortion.
As Americans I believe our focus should be on the positive goals of strengthening healthy families and encouraging adoption. I would like to see more support for these activities that have proven to be successful in building compassionate communities, strong families who love their children and value hard work and education.
As the fiancé of an active duty Marine, I know the importance of service. Our men and women in uniform have sacrificed in order to ensure the American Dream. They have stepped forward to serve: relinquishing precious time with those they love to ensure we are safe to enjoy our freedom. I am indebted to our veterans and will do what it takes to ensure our government puts their needs, and the needs of their families, first.
Our Veterans deserve, 21st century services from our government to:
- Access the healthcare and benefits they’ve earned. I’ll work with the Department of Veterans Affairs to accelerate digital modernization for our Veterans. It should be as easy as 1-2-3, to schedule a doctor’s appointment, update a mailing address, fill a prescription, and help military families with the care they need.
- Open a small business. I’ll work with the Small Business Administration to ensure access to capital and small business loans for our Veterans and their families. Small businesses are the backbone of our local communities. Our Veterans deserve easy access to resources that will fulfill an American Dream of owning a business.
- Personal Freedoms are what every person, especially veterans deserve. They fight for us overseas— let’s fight for them in America.
