"I always wondered why people wanted to come to America and what makes America different from other places because growing up in Africa, people would talk about America with joy and a glow," Alexander Buster Deputie told Fox News.

Deputie moved to the United States from Liberia in 1993 and said he saw "all the anti-American rhetoric in the media and in the culture" and thought, "'Something's up.'"

"People come to America because of safety, and overall ... because of law and order," he said. "America is a place where people feel safe, and they know that they can be protected, so they want to come here and better their lives. That is why we came."

Deputie is running to represent Minnesota’s 67th District and puts himself out as a husband, father to seven, and small business owner who will represent “my neighborhood the way we deserve to be represented.”

“As a black immigrant to this great country from Liberia, Africa, I understand first hand many social issues that are facing our country today and respect the diversity of people groups that District 67 has. I also am invested and concerned about making sure that our economy in Saint Paul and in Minnesota thrives as I am self-employed and desire to see many job opportunities available to my neighbors as well as my children now and for future generations. This is important to me,” his campaign website states.
