Latina Reps Would Push Border Security, Immigration Reform

Rafael Bejar, director of outreach at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, is in South Texas where three Latina GOP candidates could win House seats: Mayra Flores, Monica De La Cruz, and Cassy Garcia.

Flores won a special election back in June, becoming the first Mexican-born woman to sit in the House. It was also the first time in well over a century the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) voted red. Two more deep blue seats could follow if De La Cruz and Garcia win too.

Bejar, a former Republican National Committee national director of Hispanic coalitions, explains what’s shifting in the RGV and what these Latinas would likely prioritize once in Washington.
