Mayra Flores Shares Powerful Message on Immigration After Special Election Win

Thursday morning on FOX and Friends, Ainsley Earhardt interviewed Congresswoman-elect Mayra Flores (R-Texas) who shared what it means to be the first Mexican-born congresswoman. 

Flores shared that she is grateful to God, her family, her team, and the overwhelming love and support she has received in South Texas and throughout the country. Flores, who moved to America from Texas when she was six years old, knows the immigration system well and wants every child to have the experience she did coming legally. Flores argued that children should not be going through the abuse of illegal immigration, adding that she does not understand why the Demcorat party wants to encourage illegal immigration knowing what children will go through as criminal organizations have taken control of the border. Flores, whose husband is a border patrol agent, wants to make immigration safer for those coming to America. 


In response to Elon Musk’s endorsement, Flores said that she appreciates his support and cannot thank him enough for all that he is doing for her district, believing in them and investing in their area.
