Mayra Joli is an immigration attorney running as an Independent against Democrat Donna Shalala and Republican Maria Elvira Salazar. She’s been described as a “master of selfies” and has made a name for herself in Miami’s social circles and through her Fashion Night on Brickell fundraiser event.
Politically she’s been vocal about her support of President Donald Trump but she also supports a more, organized inclusive approach to immigration reform than more conservative members of the Republican party.
Based on the questions you had for the candidates, and factoring in some relevant topics, we sent questionnaires to the candidates and asked them questions about the following issues: the environment, criminal justice reform, gun control, the economy, healthcare, Puerto Rico, and immigration.
Thanks to readers Vanessa Haim and Marianna Yerak, and others who submitted questions anonymously.
