Foreign Policy & Immigration


The current administration's approach to foreign policy and immigration has been simply disastrous, and we cannot continue on this course.

As an immigrant and as someone who has traveled extensively, Newman acknowledges the following:

- America is the greatest country in the world, and we need to lead by example

- The US has squandered trillions of dollars on futile endless foreign wars since 9/11 that have achieved nothing

- The enormous cost of getting involved in foreign conflicts has negatively impacted critical domestic needs, like healthcare, education, infrastructure and social services

- Immigration has made us the wonderful and beautifully diverse nation that we are, and has strengthened our economy

- Iowa needs immigrants: as a state with one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation, we need immigrant skills and labor

- As Iowans and as Americans, we need to combat all forms of discrimination, xenophobia, antisemitism, islamophobia, and racism
