My mother came to this country as an immigrant at the age of eighteen. She worked hard, raised four kids, & persevered. I grew up in a typical middle class family, where we didn't have everything, but we were stable. I realize now how hard my mother worked to keep us comfortable. That very notion, that a young immigrant woman can come to this country legally and build a career and a family, is the American dream. I know we all can agree on that.

I intend to fight to keep that dream alive both in California and in Washington. We must rebuild the middle class in this country and tear down the socio-economic barriers that have been used to divide us. I will fight to ensure that every young man and woman, regardless of where they were born, may have the opportunity to work as hard as my mother to achieve their American dream. We are a great nation of diverse people and I intend to fight to keep America a nation of immigrants. I stand with all of you!
