Iran is our enemy; revoke the Iran Deal

Iran is the world's foremost state sponsor of terror. The "Iran Deal" should be immediately revoked as unlawful and contrary to the best interests of America and thus the free world. Iran, as well as every other state sponsor of terror, should not receive one penny of American treasure nor our support. They must be handled with the strictest of cautionary diplomacy and allowed not one inch of free reign[sic] in any endeavor which coincides with American interests. One of my very best friends is Iranian. He was forced to remain here in America in 1979, as a young college student at LSU, when the Shaw was overthrown, our embassy was seized, and the first Ayatollah was empowered. My friend has shared great insight into Iran through the years. Iran is a country of oppressed citizens who long for freedom from a regime of religious zealots who govern in the most horrific manner imaginable. The radical Islamic governing authority in Iran is our enemy. The Iranian people are not.

ISIS must be hunted, identified, and killed

ISIS, which evolved from AQI, grew in size and power because of weak, politically motivated foreign policy. President Obama and Madame Secretary Clinton have direct responsibility for the nightmare of the globalization of Radical Islamic terror. ISIS is the manifestation of middle-ages horror at its worst. ISIS must be hunted, identified, and killed. They must be dismantled and trod into the earth. All options must be on the table. In Congress, I will support all measures that destroys ISIS.

Opposes American intervention in Mideast beyond air support.

Higgins opposes the PVS survey question on Mideast intervention

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'National Security: Do you support increased American intervention in Iraq and Syria beyond air support?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
