Becerra is the incumbent in the race to become California’s attorney general. He’s the first Latino person to hold the office. Before taking the job, Becerra served as deputy attorney general and was part of the state Assembly.
Becerra is in favor of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which gives work permits and temporary reprieve from deportation to some immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children. He also supports the Affordable Care Act and has been a public opponent of President Trump’s plans to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
