As an immigrant, I am committed to elevating and improving the lives of immigrants in our community. We must work to protect the vibrant immigrant community in District 40 and all of NYC. I am fully committed to working for all of my neighbors, regardless of national origin.

  • Provide language access for constituent services in Haitian Creole, Spanish, and other languages spoken in the district.

  • Fund the New York Immigration Family Unity Project to ensure legal representation of all detained immigrants, regardless of charge or offense.

  • Extend voting rights in New York City elections to immigrant New Yorkers with green cards or work authorizations.

  • Work towards ending collaboration between the NYPD and immigrant enforcement agencies, while demanding transparency from the NYPD regarding its relationship with immigration enforcement.
