Jessica Cisneros is a 26-year-old immigration lawyer from Laredo, Texas, and she’s running to unseat Representative Henry Cuellar (TX-28), who’s been dubbed “Big Oil’s favorite Democrat.”
Cuellar represents all that’s wrong with Washington. Even though he calls himself a Democrat, he votes with Trump 69% of the time, opposes the Green New Deal, and rakes in campaign contributions from fossil fuel CEOs.
Jessica Cisneros, on the other hand, is ready to fight for the Green New Deal and isn’t taking a cent of corporate PAC or lobbyist money. As a young person and a proud daughter of Mexican immigrants, Cisneros has seen firsthand the countless ways politicians like Cuellar have failed the communities they’re supposed to serve. She’s ready to step up and lead on a new path.
