Stump Speech
Women still do not have complete control over what happens to their bodies. Abortion is a human right, and one that I will fight to protect. For minors, notifying their guardians puts thousands of young girls at risk of abuse and assault. Further, the courts definition of rape is repugnant. The use of the word “no” should always be enough, the victim should never have to forcibly fight back for the situation to be considered rape. Our rape laws are lacking and only a terrifying 3% of rapists spend a day in jail, thousands walk free, never atoning for the lives they have corrupted. The wage gap in America is great. Companies will be held responsible if pay discrimination is apparent.
We are a nation of immigrants. My immigration reforms will sensibly and respectfully reflect the needs of the great, American melting pot. First, we will legalize all undocumented citizens who can pass a background check and have no criminal record either in their home country or the U.S. We will cut back on deportations in order to reduce the stress of families fearing separation, and instead prioritize the deportation of offending migrants. In order to prevent the resurgence of criminal migrants, we will increase border patrol. We will revamp border safety by replacing detention centers with refuge centers specifically directed to aid at-risk, asylum-seeking families.
Lastly, I seek to mend the justice system, because no one is equal without equal treatment under the law. People of color make up about 30% of the American population, but make up more than 60% of the prison system. Together, we can end our history of racial bias by holding law enforcement officials accountable for their racially discriminatory practices. All research and successful drug policy show that rehabilitation should be increased. By abolishing mandatory minimum sentences, drug offenders, who make up nearly half of the prison system, will spend less time behind bars where they can do nothing but relapse, and instead spend more time receiving treatment.
