A border wall is an expensive boondoggle that won't effect illegal border activity at all, but will instead cost billions and take land away from American people.

11. What should be done about the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants who are in the U.S.?
Josh Mahony (Democrat)
Candidate Refused to Complete the Survey.

Michael Kalagias (Libertarian)
Those that have committed other crimes should be deported. Those that represent a threat to national security should be deported. Those that wish to become American citizens should be permitted to.
Steve Womack (Republican)
The first step in addressing the 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States is to close our borders. America is a nation of laws, and we must eliminate the incentive to break them before we turn to solving for those who are in this country illegally.
12. How can the U.S. prevent mass shootings?
Josh Mahony (Democrat)
Candidate Refused to Complete the Survey.

Michael Kalagias (Libertarian)
Short answer is it can't. Allowing exercise of the 2nd amendment might help some but won't prevent mass shootings. This is a societal problem that will take a change in society to fix.
Steve Womack (Republican)
In order to prevent mass shootings, Congress and the federal government need to work in partnership with state and local governments, schools, parents, and community leaders to ensure that not only are current gun laws enforced, but also that we address and destigmatize mental illness, one of the most significant causes of these horrendous acts of violence.
13. What type of health care reform do you support?
Josh Mahony (Democrat)
Candidate Refused to Complete the Survey.

Michael Kalagias (Libertarian)
Let the Free Market reform health care. A safety net can be provided through county health department free clinics that are also educational facilities and funded through public-private partnerships.
Steve Womack (Republican)
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act exacerbated the problems plaguing our health care system while significantly driving up the cost of care. Without serious reform, spending on health care will continue to drive our nation’s balance sheet deeper into debt. We must enact reforms, including the sale of insurance across state lines, changes to our tort system, and making Medicare and Medicaid sustainable for future generations.
