Sarah Steelman on Homeland Security

 


Peace through strength against our invisible enemy

America is at war with an invisible enemy that will stop at nothing to kill us. America must take any and every action necessary to take the fight to the terrorists before they can attack us. Believing in President Reagan's mantra of peace through strength, America can only be safe if we are stronger than our enemies. Our armed forces must remain the strongest on the planet, and we must provide them with the tools needed to do the job they do better than any force in the history of the world.

Federal government should be tracking every movement

Q: What's going on for the REAL ID that the federal government's going to apply? Are you for or are you against that?

A: I'm inclined to be against it because one, it's a federal mandate and two, I don't think the federal government should be tracking every movement. I think they should focus on shutting the borders down and imposing sanctions on employers who knowingly hire illegal workers.

Created terror-free fund: divest from state sponsors abroad

Q: You talked about the things that you've done to stop foreign investments from funding terrorism & I believe the program you're involved with is called the divest terror program, correct?

A: That's what the action is taking.

Q: Specifically, how does that program works and what you've done to support it?

A: In the Treasurer's office, we created a terror-free fund with a pool of money that actually is a part separate from general revenue, because general revenue can't be invested in stocks. We screen that fund to identify companies that have a financial relationship with governments that are state sponsors of terrorism by our government which includes North Korea, Iran, Sudan, and Syria. And so if that financial relationship exists between that government and, let's say, [a foreign bank] then that stock never gets sent to the fund. Those companies come up for a divestment vote on the board I sit on. And sometimes they're removed and sometimes they're not. I always try to remove them.
