Rep. Mayra Flores Calls out AOC for Being out of Touch, Blames Biden Administration for Southern Border Influx

Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX) won in the state’s 34th Congressional District in the special election. She will face Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX), who currently represents the 15th Congressional District, in the contest for the redrawn 34th Congressional District during the November midterm elections.


Flores joined “The Ingraham Angle” on FOX News to discuss several topics. One of them was about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her disconnect from the rest of America.

“AOC does not represent the Hispanic community; definitely does not represent Texas District 34 and who we are here. And we’re not worried about the Washington nonsense, Latinx. We’re worried about the cost of living, gas, food, health care. That’s what we’re worried [about] every single day. We’re not waking up and thinking about what’s happening in Washington. They’re just so disconnected. It’s really sad because they think that the world revolves around Washington, D.C., and that’s really not the reality.”

Flores was referring to the left trying to push the term “Latinx” when Hispanics themselves have said “Latinx” offends them. She has been focused on the real issues impacting the citizens of Texas District 34, such as the cost of living, health care, and gas, as she noted.

She also spoke about the New York Times hit piece on her due to her campaign slogan: “God, Family, Country.”

“I honestly don’t really care about the New York Times. They know nothing about me or my culture. Like I said, we’re all about God, Family, and Country, and that is who we are in South Texas … When we [Immigrants] decide to run for office, and we’re excited to promote our values, values that they are against … God and family values, so they hate it … I’m focused on the District that I’m running.”


Flores also spoke about the southern border, and she balmed the Biden administration for the border crisis.

“The cartel has taken over… You cannot cross illegally unless you pay thousands and thousands of dollars. And yes, there’s children and women coming into our country… But also a lot of horrible people, terrorists also coming into our country, putting the American people in danger… We do have a serious problem, but I do put the blame on the Biden administration.” 

Flores came to the United States from Mexico when she was six years old. She is the country’s first Mexican-born congresswoman. Her husband is a Border Patrol agent. As the GOP looks to win Hispanic voters in the midterms, Flores has been a massive boost in that effort, as the GOP now has the momentum to win back the House in November.
