Harlem State Senator Adriano Espaillat, the Democratic primary winner in New York’s 13th congressional district, will address the delegates at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in support of the Clinton-Kaine ticket. If elected in November, Espaillat would not only become the first Dominican-American to ever serve in Congress, he would also become the first member to publicly acknowledge being a former undocumented immigrant. Senator Espaillat’s story offers a stark contrast with the anti-immigrant vision presented by Donald Trump, and the intolerant platform approved by delegates at the Republican National Convention.
