Vernon Jones on Homeland Security
Democratic Senate challenger
Q: Should law enforcement agencies have greater discretion to monitor domestic communications, to prevent future terrorist attacks?
Q: Do you support the creation of a federal identification card system?
Q: Should the United States hold foreign states accountable for terrorists who operate in their country?
Q: Do you support pre-emptive military strikes against countries deemed to be a threat to United States national security?
Q: Do you support long-term use of National Guard troops to supplement the armed forces in assignments overseas?
