Rising GOP star Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX) has put Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on notice by warning voters that the celebrity Democrat “does not represent the Hispanic community.”
Speaking during an appearence on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Flores also fired back at the New York Times for calling her a “far-right Latina.”
Flores dropped the hammer on Ocasio-Cortez, noting that AOC’s “woke” agenda does not connect with Hispanic voters.
“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.”
“I am proud of my culture and my beautiful family,” Flores told Fox News digital earlier.
She continued terrifying the Democratic Party:
“I was born in Burgos, Tamaulipas, Mexico, and raised with strong Conservative values to always put God and Family first.
“I have received only hate from the liberal media and constantly been told by the left to go back to Mexico.
“They don’t support us immigrants, they only use us for political power and don’t care about our well-being.
“I am here now and I won’t allow them to continue taking advantage of my people.
“The NYT knows nothing about me or our culture.
“Somos gente de Dios, Familia y Travajo [We are people of God, Family and Work], Si Señor!” she said.
Rep. @MayraFlores2022 historic win in South Texas was met not with glowing praise, but borderline racist derision by the leftist media. https://t.co/dFS5nernjm
