NEWARK, NJ – Lizette Delgado-Polanco, Statewide Hispanic Leader, released the following statement showing her support for New Jersey’s Senior U.S. Senator, Bob Menendez:
“Senator Bob Menendez has been committed to the Hispanic community his entire career – fighting to fix our broken immigration system, to expand opportunities for Latinas, to defend DACA and DAPA so that families are not torn apart. He is a humble and incredibly efficient senator, working tirelessly to ensure the voices of the Latino community are heard loud and clear in the halls of Congress and at the voting booths.
In both New Jersey and Congress, he spearheads efforts to ensure not only Latinas but all women have access to maternity coverage and to ensure fairness for every immigrant and every family. His efforts are guided by the belief that no one should ever be considered a second-class citizen and for over forty years, he has devoted his life to his incredibly diverse constituency. We’ve elected Bob Menendez time and again because we know that he has always fought for us and never once has he let us down.”
