Issue Position: National Security/War on Terror

Issue Position

One of the adverse side effects of a big government agenda is that when the government intrudes in areas where it does not belong, it neglects its primary responsibilities like national security.

Congressman Smith thinks that the government needs to stop treating terrorists like citizens and stop treating citizens like terrorists. In Congress, he has fought the closure of the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay and the transfer of dangerous terrorists to our shores. And he has made strengthening our national defenses against terror one of his highest priorities.
