Civil Liberties

It’s the responsibility of elected officials to protect the people from an intrusive government.

That’s why Raúl opposes the government collecting bulk information about its citizens, such as phone data. The constitution guarantees our individual rights and freedoms, and Raúl will fight against a government that attempts to take those away. He opposes legislation that threatens that which we would most dear— our right to personal freedom.

No government should overstep it’s constitutional authority. Which is why Raúl supports smarter sentencing for crimes. Instead of the government imposing minimum sentencing, Raúl believes the punishment should fit for the crime. Rather than clumping non-violent criminals with those who have committed more extreme crimes, judges should be given the flexibility to sentence criminals accordingly.
