Kamala Harris is the daughter of an East Indian mother and a Jamaican father. She is a lawyer who began her career as the district attorney of San Francisco before being elected attorney general of California. In 2017, she was elected as a senator from California to the U.S. Congress and in 2021 as vice president on the ticket with Joe Biden. Harris is the first woman to ever hold the office of vice president. She advocated for healthcare reform, a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, and a ban on assault weapons. An opponent of the death penalty, she stated life imprisonment without parole is better and more cost-effective. She estimated the repeal of the death penalty would result in cost savings that could pay for thousands of additional police officers.
