Paulina is involved in the nonprofit organization, Veterans for Child Rescue, which aims to bring an end to child human trafficking. This brought about an extensive discussion about child separation at the southern border. Paulina explains in her speech, “I would much rather have a child temporarily separated from someone that’s claiming to be their father, mother, whatever it might be, and be able to determine biologically if they’re related instead of delivering them into the very hands that would exploit them."
She explains her viewpoints on the concept of a border wall, "built sections of the border wall have allowed [illegal] immigration to drop to a percentage relative to zero... but it increases, therefore, in areas without a border wall." As the granddaughter of immigrants herself, Paulina is in strong support of legal immigration.
Roughly fifty people attended the event, which was held in the Student Union Ballroom. Dozens of people from the community also showed up to listen and show their support.
