Harder for all

All people should have access to healthcare. Democratic Candidate Josh Harder supports healthcare for all, regardless of status. As a cancer survivor, I know what it's like to worry about the possibility that you might not survive just because you do not have enough money.

As an immigrant, I've seen my community live their lives in fear. There are already many who have stopped going to work for fear of being deported and separated from their children and their families. Harder supports not only immigration reform, but reform that does not incriminate, marginalize, or separate our people.

Similarly, it is important that all of our children have a good free education without going thousands of dollars in debt. As an instructor at Modesto Junior College, Harder knows what students suffer when trying to pay for their education. And even more, when those students are undocumented.

For these reasons and more, it is important that Harder becomes our next congressman, rather than Denham, our current congressman who has voted alongside with Trump and his party. The same people who call people like me, animals, criminals, and rapists. This is not what the Central Valley is.
