(RepublicanWire.org) – Republican Texas Rep. Mayra Flores said that Democrats “use immigrants for political power.”

Flores said she flipped the Texas’ 34th congressional district because of funding, noting the district already had strong conservative values.

“I believe that the reason why this district hadn’t been flipped is we didn’t have the funding,” Flores said. “This district is already conservative, we’re all about faith, family and hard work. That’s who we are by nature, so I believe that because of my story, being born in Mexico, coming here to the U.S., working in the cotton fields, working at a young age, graduating from high school, becoming a respiratory care practitioner, a border patrol wife, the mother of four young children, that’s the American dream. That’s who we are today.”

“My story resonated with the people in my district,” she continued.

Flores said she’s not concerned about her reelection in November, where she faces Democratic Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, who currently represents the 15th district.

Gonzalez chose to run in the 34th district following redistricting.

“The strategy stays the same, the lines don’t change the values of the district,” Flores said. “I’m the incumbent, I am the congresswoman.”

“Gonzalez thought it would be an easier win for him, it did not get harder for me. If I continue to focus on the issues that matter … we’re gonna win the reelection through hard work.”

“These are people that claim they’re for immigrants, these are people that claim they’re for women, they’re for people of color, they’re not supporting me. They just use immigrants for political power. I support immigration, and that is why my focus will be improving the legal process so that good people who want to come here and work hard for the American dream don’t have to go through hell for the American Dream.”

Flores is a first-time candidate who won Texas’ 34th district in a special election. Flores received endorsements from House GOP Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

The 34th district leans 17 points toward Democrats, according to FiveThirtyEight.

(RepublicanWire.org) – A Tennessee lawmaker introduced a bill proposing illegal migrants in the U.S. be sent to the home states and towns of prominent Democratic leaders, such as President Biden and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. 

“The Biden administration is quietly moving thousands of illegals to various states, including Tennessee, by putting them on planes and buses and transporting them in the middle of the night, and we should return them to their sender!” state Rep. Bruce Griffey, who introduced the bill, wrote Wednesday. 

“I imagine that if we relocated them to the backyards of those responsible for allowing the flood of illegal immigration across our border, then those with federal power might be more apt to secure the border and secure it quickly.”

The bill works to put illegal immigrants into the home states and towns of those “responsible for our border crisis.” The migrants would be put into towns such as Block Island, Rhode Island; Greenwich, Connecticut; Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts; Governors Island, New York; Rehoboth Beach, Delaware; Nantucket, Massachusetts; Newport, Rhode Island; Scarsdale, New York; Palo Alto, California; Yountville, California; St. Helena, California; or North Hero, Vermont.

Biden hails from Delaware, and California is the home state of Vice President Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and others. White House press secretary Jen Psaki is from Greenwich, Connecticut, and North Hero, Vermont, is where Sen. Bernie Sanders has a vacation home. 

“We have lawlessness that is intentionally being allowed to happen to benefit powerful, entrenched, wealthy corporate interests, who want cheap labor at the expense of national security, safe communities, and low-wage labor markets. If Tennessee bands together with Governor DeSantis and Florida and other states follow suit, we might actually be able to effect change,” Griffey said in his statement. 

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said last month he plans to send such illegal immigrants to Delaware and Martha’s Vineyard, where former President Obama and other Democratic leaders own homes. 

“If you sent [them] to Delaware or Martha’s Vineyard, that border would be secure the next day,” DeSantis said in December. 

Pennsylvania Republicans also said earlier this month that they are drafting a bill to relocate migrants entering the state on federally sponsored flights to Delaware. 

Reports surfaced in October of flights coming into suburban New York transporting migrants from border states. Former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino filed a Freedom of Information Act request that revealed footage this week of a local police officer confronting federal contractors on the tarmac of a Westchester airport on Aug. 13, 2021, who were bringing migrants to the state under the cover of the night. 

One contractor told the officer in the video that the flights were kept secret, “because if this gets out, the government is betraying the American people.”

The officer discovered the migrants were being bused to Delaware, Virginia and New Jersey after landing in New York. 

“Our government is completely out of control right now. They have lied to us. They’ve lied to the American people,” Astorino, who is running as a Republican for the governor of New York, said Wednesday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – DeSantis has been a heavy hitter the Republicans have needed for quite some time now. We’re not sure if they forgot to inform him how the conservatives these days are supposed to go along to get along or maybe he’s just ready to take the stand many of us have longed to see. Either way, it’s these tactics that have most Americans headed that way. There are even whispers of Texans ready to trade in their snakeskin boots for a fresh set of alligator duds.

But what, you might ask, would cause Texans to want to leave their beloved Lone Star State? Well, it’s the same thing that has driven many a conscientious homeowner to bemoan the day he labeled himself as “friendly,” … his neighbors came over and overstayed their welcome. In other words, our neighbors to the south are acting like the fish and friends that start to smell after three days, and as if matters couldn’t be made worse than the flood of illegal immigrants that have been careening into Texas society for decades, there is a new attitude between both the immigrants and the people inviting them into the south.

Much like a deluded in-law that continually invites people over to your house, to eat your food and take up your resources without your permission, the federal government has found itself in the comfy position of being able to invite illegals into the country to stay, and place them wherever they want them to go. Now, traditionally Texans have a great relationship with the immigrants that are here to work and make a better life for themselves, but as it stands now, the immigrants being bussed all over the country, for the most part, have their hands stuck out.

But far be it from DeSantis to let that go by him without offering liberals a chance to put their money (and their safety) where their big liberal mouths are. In the most recent press conference DeSantis stated “In yesterday’s budget, I put in $8 million for us to be able to transport people here illegally out of the state of Florida. It’s somewhat tongue in cheek, but it is true, if you sent them to Delaware or Martha’s Vineyard or some of these places, that border would be secure the next day.”

While that’s one of the most accurate statements we’ve heard out of any politician in a very long time, the Dems don’t want the illegals shuttled in any more than the Republicans do. Sometimes in life, people just need a taste of their own medicine and I think DeSantis has the right idea. Even though having droves of illegals being dumped into Martha’s Vineyard doesn’t even compare to the economic drain those illegals put on an already stressful tax burden and supply chain crisis.

“One of the priorities that we’ve been working on for many months now, and we’ll continue to work with the legislature when they get back is dealing with the fallout from the reckless border policies of the Biden administration,” stated DeSantis in the press conference.

And just to add the icing to this red, white, and liberals blue in the face desert, DeSantis is also planning to contract with private businesses to stimulate their economic gain all while pushing illegal immigrants out of his sub-tropical paradise and increasing the number of limited supply goods that will be available for his residents.

Is it a perfect solution? No. An ounce of prevention keeping illegals from entering the nation would be a lot better. However, the pound of cure, in this case, does come with the perk of being able to potentially rub the limousine liberal’s perfectly quaffed noses in the results of their ludicrous and unsustainable policies all while inconveniencing them to the utmost. So not a total loss.
