When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Very Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

I vet candidates every two years, pay to have my editorial on candidates printed in the local paper. I recommend candidates based on their voting records using the Conservative Review report card, and Scorecard, their appearances on networks.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

I don't believe health care is a right, but a privilege. I believe that we need to care for our Veterans and American citizens first before we engage in providing Medicaid to illegals.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

I believe the less government is involve with the business aspect, that our economy will grow exponentially. Government becomes a burden on business to the point of over regulation killing any incentives businesses have.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

I believe we should have a flat sales tax, that way everyone pays, from the smallest consumer to the billionaires buying their toys.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Give tax breaks to small business owners, do away with over regulations that over burden entrepreneurs and small and large business. Encourage corporations to bring back their overseas ventures.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

lower taxes Keep the Federal Govt from using the funds paid by hard working Americans in other spending areas.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

As a small business owner in the medical industry, rancher, and a fifth generation American Tejana with a rich Mexican Heritage, I am fluent in Spanish. As a former Migrant Farmworker who rose from the ashes of poverty to live the American Dream. 70% of my district are Spanish speaking Tejanos. I was married to an Irish American and understand cross culture. I have lived on the Border most of my life and was married to a Federal Narcotics Agent for 32 years who worked along the border, from El Paso to McAllen, Texas. The open border is a huge problem. I believe in building the wall. The incumbent does not want a physical wall and is very vocal. I believe our country needs to have control of our borders, because without borders, we don't have sovereignty, and without sovereignty, we don't have civility, and without civility, we don't have liberty, and without liberty we have tyranny. Tyranny leads to unrest and civil war. I also support my President Trump.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I am a Constituional Conservative. I am a very staunch supporter of the Second Amendment. I believe we should not grant amnesty to DACA recipients. We need to do something about the 14th amendment. It does not guaranteed citizenship to anchor babies. I believe we should have merit base visas, and stop chain migration and lottery visas. We should maintain stringent voter id and even have voters dip their finger in ink to prevent them from multiple voting and prevent fraud. Care for our Veterans and American citizens first and foremost before any illegals get any kind of help!! Social Security is an ENTITLEMENT and those that paid into are entitled to get it back. Social Security is not to be confused with WELFARE. Issuing Medicaid, food stamps to illegal is welfare.
