Qualifications and Experience I have been a practicing attorney for over 16 years spending time working at some of the best law firms in the world, similarly to President Obama, to supervising over 50 attorneys at times.
I support President Biden's American Rescue Plan which enabled economic relief to individuals suffering from the effects of the Covid-19 epidemic in the US. I will continue to support the ACA, and fight so every American has lower prescription prices. and access to affordable healthcare. I would like to see a single payer healthcare system initiated in the US one day, that would put us on par with other first world countries throughout the world. It will take time, and as I said, will support the ACA, until this transition can be negotiated.
I support the American Rescue Plan, and support federal policies that enable those suffering from socioeconomic disadvantaged situations get the funding needed that allow them to provide for themselves, and family members.
I stand against corporations making direct political contributions to candidates, ending citizens united and support the John Lewis Voting Act that established new criteria for determining which states and political subdivisions must obtain preclearance before changes to voting practices may take effect.
I fully support H.R. 1558 Child Poverty Reduction Act of 2021, which requires requires the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Census Bureau to take certain actions with respect to poverty measures and data related to child poverty. It also requires the National Academy of Sciences to report annually on child poverty and study other issues, such as policies to reduce intergenerational poverty.
I support H.R. 2021 Environmental Justice For All Act, which establishes several environmental justice requirements, advisory bodies, and programs to address the disproportionate adverse human health or environmental effects of federal laws or programs on communities of color, low-income communities, or tribal and indigenous communities. It also prohibits disparate impacts on the basis of race, color, or national origin as discrimination. Aggrieved persons may seek legal remedy when faced with such discrimination.
I support H.R. 1177 U.S. Citizenship Act, which establishes a path to citizenship for certain undocumented individuals. The bill also replaces the term alien with noncitizen in the immigration statutes and addresses other related issues. It also establishes a new status of lawful prospective immigrant. This status shall be available to an applying noncitizen who meets certain requirements, including being continually present in the United States from January 1, 2021, and passing background checks. After at least five years with this status, an eligible noncitizen may apply for and receive permanent resident status.
