Delgado on the Issues

Supporting Small Businesses

The son of a business entrepreneur, Jorge Delgado knows that small businesses are the backbone of our economy. Jorge believes in fewer government mandates and more policies that provide certainty, which will incentivize innovation and generate stronger economic growth. In Congress, Jorge will fight to advance President Trump’s pro-jobs agenda, protecting the American Dream and fostering an environment where businesses and Maryland families thrive.

Securing Affordable, Accessible Healthcare

From newborns to seniors, Eastern Shore families need access to safe, affordable healthcare. Jorge is committed to combating surprise billing, lowering prescription drug prices, as well as protecting and preserving Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Fiscal Responsibility

Jorge Delgado believes in America’s greatness. That greatness comes from us, We the People, not government. Jorge believes government should be smaller, smarter and more efficient. In Congress, Jorge will use his conservative principles to fight for a fair and simple pro-growth tax code, eliminate fraud and abuse, cut wasteful government spending and reduce our national debt.

2nd Amendment

We the People have the God-given right to keep and bear arms in order to protect the liberties and freedom guaranteed to us by our Constitution. The Eastern Shore is home to avid hunters, sportsmen and responsible gun owners. However, well-funded progressive groups relentlessly seek ways to undermine and limit our inherent rights. As your Representative, Jorge will never allow government or special interest groups to infringe on our civil liberties.

Term Limits

Jorge supports term limits as the most effective way to end the free ride being given to career politicians who squander their opportunity to lead and believes all members of the House of Representatives should be subject to term limits. Therefore, if elected, Jorge Delgado pledges to serve no more than FOUR CONSECUTIVE TERMS in the House of Representatives and will do so regardless of whether or not a term limit provision for all members is adopted by the House.

Jorge believes if eight years is good enough for a US president to fulfill the promise of their agenda, eight years should be good enough for any member of Congress to sponsor and pass meaningful and productive legislation for their district.

Build the Wall / Enforce the Law

Jorge’s father legally immigrated and became a proud U.S. citizen. The Delgado family takes offense to those who enter the country illegally, then use loopholes in our laws to cheat the system. Immigration when done lawfully, adds value and positively influences our communities. However, when we lose control of our borders and we are unable to safely vet those entering our country, it becomes a matter of national security which strains our resources and puts us all at risk. Jorge adamantly opposes sanctuary cities, which are unlawful. Those radical policies create chaos, confusion and makes policing our neighborhoods infinitely more challenging. In order to help protect and secure our borders, Jorge strongly supports building the wall and utilizing high-tech tools. It is important we have well-manned orderly Ports of Entry, which allows Department of Homeland Security to properly vet and screen those who seek entry into the country. Jorge strongly supports additional funding for judges, Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) & Border Patrol Agents to help solve the immigration crisis.

Cyber Bill of Rights

We’ve never had a serious discussion regarding our digital privacy and data. Privacy is a pillar to freedom, we ought to have rights that limits big tech, corporations, and government’s access to our digital life. It is time we bring the 4th Amendment (prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures) into the 21st century by enacting a Cyber Bill of Rights.


The preciousness of life is always worth defending. We must remain vigilant to protect the sanctity of life and fight for the unborn.

Protecting Our Environment

Our legendary seafood, beautiful beaches and pristine waterways are a few of the treasures that make the Eastern Shore great. Jorge opposes seismic blasting off Maryland’s coast and recognizes its threat to the ocean environment as well as commercial and recreational fishing. He also opposes the proposed offshore wind farm and its potential to negatively impact our sightlines and views, property values and more. Jorge is a strong supporter of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, an important program that provides critical resources, without federal taxpayer dollars, for coastal conservation and restoration, increasing access for sportsmen and preserving iconic battlefields. Most importantly, Maryland must hold its neighboring states accountable for any harm caused that adversely affects our beloved Chesapeake Bay.
