Tom Suozzi on Homeland Security

 

 


Protect our core values as Americans

I am committed to protecting our core values as Americans, and as a member of Congress, Homeland Security will be one of my top priorities. The realities of terrorism have hit New Yorkers too close to home, and we have endured more than a decade of post-traumatic stress after the attacks on 9/11 by extremists motivated by hatred and bloodshed. In order to ensure our future well-being and establish peace and stability in the Middle East, we must impose a multi-pronged strategy to curbing the growth of terrorist organizations, and stopping the spread of extremist values at home and abroad.

I will vigorously support intelligence cooperation and military aid to Israel. It's in our best interest to do so: any hint that this cooperation could be at risk is a dangerous signal to Israel, and emboldens our shared enemies. I will vote to fund a renewed 10-year commitment of a minimum $3.1 billion annually for military assistance to Israel, as well as additional funding for foreign aid.

Warriors to Work: public-private partnership for vets' jobs

As a country we must be better about putting our veterans needs first. We can never fully repay the debt we owe our service men and women, but we must do all that we can to ensure their smooth and successful transition to civilian life when they return home from service.

As Nassau County Executive, I spearheaded the county's Warriors to Work program, a public-private partnership that helped match veterans with open jobs in the local business community. I oversaw Nassau County's participation in a series of Veteran Stand Downs, which aim to support homeless vets in need, and through this and like initiatives, helped hundreds of needy veterans find jobs, training, treatment, shelter, and housing during my time in office.

In Congress, I will fight for better services & support on behalf of military families who serve alongside our armed forces. It's high time we treat our national heroes and their families with the compassion & respect they deserve.
