Support Immigration Reform:

Mazie Hirono, United States Senator

Rep_Mazie_Hirono_112th_TwitterAmong the new class of United States Senators sworn in this week is Sen. Mazie Hirono, Democrat of Hawaii. Hirono is also a naturalized American.

Hirona was born in Fukishima, Japan, in 1947. Her family moved to Hawaii in 1955, and she became an American citizen in 1959, the year Hawaii became a state. She attended public schools, the University of Hawaii, and Georgetown Law School.

Back home in Hawaii, Hirono served five terms in the state legislature, then two terms as Lieutenant Governor. After losing a bid for governor in 2002, Hirono was elected to Congress in 2006, where she served three terms in the House before her election to the Senate in 2012.
