Irma Palacios came to the United States from Mexico and last July she became a naturalized citizen of the United States. Like many new citizens, she immediately registered to vote – she was eager to be a part of the democratic process.
This morning she cast her ballot for the first time. The smile on her face speaks to the empowering and joyous experience of first-time voters across the country.
Irma, like so many other immigrants, truly reflects the American Dream.
Yesterday, she marched. Today, she voted.
