Congressmember Barragán is fighting for working people. As a councilwoman, she balanced budgets, fixed streets, developed afterschool programs, and hired new police officers without increasing taxes.

She serves on the House Homeland Security Committee and Natural Resources Committee, and contributes to the Hispanic Caucus and the Progressive Caucus.
