Dem Senator Kamala Harris Launches 2020 Presidential Campaign


Appearing on ABC’s “Good Morning America” in Monday, first-term Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California, an outspoken critic of US President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, launched her 2020 campaign for the White House.

“Let’s do this, together. Let’s claim our future. For ourselves, for our children, and for our country,” Harris, who was born into a family of immigrants from Jamaica and India, said in a campaign video that was released to coincide with her television appearance.

Her Baltimore-based campaign will focus on reducing the population’s living costs and a middle-class tax credit, immigration and criminal justice issues, along with an all-embracing Medicare-for-all healthcare system. She has said she will reject corporate political action committee money.

Formerly California’s attorney general and one of the earliest congressional critics of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, Harris has pushed hard for a deal to protect from deportation those immigrants who came to the country illegally as children, a group known as Dreamers.
