These are but a few of the many issues facing the United States. Beginning in 2009, Jo Rae Perkins has talked with hundreds of Oregonians throughout Oregon asking them what their concerns are regarding the federal governmet and the United States of America.

You are invited to check back on a regular basis as Jo Rae will be expanding upon these topices with her thoughts and possible solutions.
Balanced Budget Amendment is needed to end the out of control spending
Federal Lands: Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 of the U.S. Constitution is superior to all federal laws or administrative rules
Foreign Policy: Stand by our allies, especially Israel
Gun Ownership: I support the 2nd Amendment as it is written
Immigration: If a country does not have clearly defind borders, they really do not have a country.

1. Build the Wall
2. Enforce the immigration laws
3. Use E-verify
4. End sanctuary cities and states
5. End the immigration lottery system
6. Limit chain migration
