Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California (3)

What financing method(s) would you support to repair or improve roads, rails, ports, airports, the electrical grid, and other infrastructure in the U.S.?
Answer from Henry Alan Ota:

UCSA: This program will have an infrastructure aspect to it such as the Army Core of Engineers, Environmental task Force, Homeland security or Forestry Service. Financing will come from reappropriate funds from several existing programs such as but not limited to the Farm Bill, HUD or the new long term treasury Bonds. There should be no need to raise personal income taxes.

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages to secure affordable health care?
Answer from Henry Alan Ota:

Implementation of my “UCSA” Universal Civilian Service Agreement

·         Two year commitment for all eligible 18-24 year old civilians

·         Open to anyone over 24 years of age Civilian/Military service 

·         Social benefits eligibilities and incentives

·         Healthcare, Education Credits, Small Biz loan, Housing Loan

Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the House of Representatives.
Answer from Henry Alan Ota:

Immigration 101

Let’s keep it simple it’s not really that hard

Boarder security isn’t only about a WALL it’s about deterring the criminals from exploiting our laws.

The completion and update of any Wall must meet a rational and strategic need. Along with a larger security force and modernizing the technology at the border crossings I will implement a strong deterrent for those already here or those considering entering the US without proper protocol.

First and foremost: criminals should not be above the law or be able to take advantage of our Justice system.

Any undocumented person caught for any crime and prosecuted will receive 2 times the maximum sentencing for first time and immediately deported to home nation once sentence is completed.

If a person returns with criminal record or commits a second crime the punishment will be 5 times the maximum sentence for past crime or current conviction whichever is greater.

Third strike is life without parole in migrant work camps with harsh conditions and restrictions on any outside visitors or information.

Being in the US without proper documentation is not a crime punishable by the above. If caught without documentation and no other crime or record in the US there will be an option for legal status via Universal Civilian Service Agreement for specific circumstances (not citizenship) or the safe return to Home County without any incrassation.


All current DACA status holders will have a pathway to citizenship or legal status via the UCSA and allowed to sponsor eligible non DACA family members via the UCSA
