Myra Flores, deputy who took a seat in the Legislative Assembly United States of america He was born on Tuesday (21) in the city of Tamaulipas, Mexico and immigrated at the age of 6. She grew up in the Rio Grande Valley region of Texas.
For the next 7 months, she would be the federal deputy for that area in Washington.
The victory was unusual for two reasons.
One is political: Flores belongs to the Republican Party, and the Rio Grande Valley region is traditionally Democratic – making it one of the regions with the highest concentration of Latino voters in the US. She has already declared that she is a supporter of former President Donald Trump, who was elected in 2016 by promising to build a wall to prevent Mexicans from crossing into the United States.
Another reason why the victory is unusual is that Flores is the first Mexican woman to be a member of the US Congress.
Most of his relatives have always voted for the Democratic Party, but they learn that their views on abortion, religion and border security have more to do with GOP guidelines. He started joining party politics 5 years ago.
She applied for a vacancy for deputy which was left open as the incumbent had left office to work as a lobbyist.
Flores raised more money in these elections than any other contestant.
After being elected, she said, “I am proud to be the wife of a border guard guard and a mother fighting for a better future for my children.”
She also said that she wants to inspire children who work in the fields, be it strawberries, onions, cotton or whatever. “I want you to know that if you work hard you can become a Congressman,” he said.
One of his banners during the election campaign was inflation in America. “Everyone is angry at the cost of living,” he said.
She also wants to improve the immigration process for people who want to go to the US legally.
She will run again in November – the election she won, for a buffer term only.
