Jessica Cisneros for Congress

Bio Im running to represent the working people of TX-28 in Congress. It’s time to elect a real Democrat who’ll fight for all of us, not big corporate donors.

Twitter Web App : Enough is enough. We have a responsibility to protect our communities against bad actors.

In Congress, I'll fight to restore the reforms Trump has stripped so people can borrow money without heaping on debt.

#TX28 deserves a true advocate for working people in Washington. 6/6

Twitter Web App : The money Rep. Henry Cuellar takes from predatory lenders is yet another example of him putting corporate interests before our community and siding with President Trump and the Republicans, who have gutted the CFPB and rolled back critical oversight reforms over the past few years. 5/6

Twitter Web App : Meanwhile, Rep. Henry Cuellar is the second-largest recipient of donations from predatory payday lenders among ALL House members this cycle. (He's taken over $16,000.)

In the 2016 cycle he took $30,400 from payday lenders and last cycle, he took EVEN MORE – $43,000 to be exact. 3/6

Twitter Web App : Payday lenders often prey on the most vulnerable members of our communities. I know many folks in #TX28 rely on them & I live across the st from 1.

High poverty rates in TX make our "poorest citizens ripe targets for payday lending abuses" (Dallas Morning News). It's heartbreaking. 2/6

Twitter Web App : The @WaPo published this piece on predatory payday lenders and how they're funding Trump and some top Republicans.

You know who else they're funding? Trump's favorite Democrat, Henry Cuellar.

Twitter Web App : My hometown of Laredo, TX is the # 1 trade port in the US. The USMCA will affect the everyday lives of working people in our community.

Labor standards & worker protections should be treated as a priority in our negotiations — not an inconvenience.

Twitter Web App : It's time to stop normalizing the horrors of senseless gun violence. We know how to solve this problem:

We must fight to pass stronger, more effective gun safety laws — like universal background checks — that will keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people.

Twitter Web App : Texas has already been through so much heartbreak this year — this morning, we woke up to more. I’m praying for the people of Greenville and the entire Texas A&M-Commerce community.

In addition to our prayers, we must also hold ourselves & our leaders accountable to take action.
