English and Spanish speaking voters need to see on TV and hear on radio that Mayra Flores is the wife of a border patrol agent, frontline health care worker, and a migrant from humble beginnings who achieved the American Dream. Mayra is fighting in Congress to lower the cost of living, secure our borders, and protect Texas jobs to provide a better future for all South Texas families.

  • Mayra Flores is the wife of a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Agent and will fight to secure our borders and stop dangerous drug cartels and human trafficking.
  • Mayra Flores will fight for America’s small businesses, expand foreign trade, focus on the dignity of hard work and secure a future for our children.
  • Mayra Flores was raised with strong family values and works to instill them in her own children. Family values are what makes our community in South Texas so special and Mayra will work to defend our families.
  • As a healthcare worker, Mayra Flores understands that having access to affordable healthcare is essential for our South Texas families. In Congress, Mayra will always strive to improve our healthcare system and work to find solutions that will lower the cost of prescription medicine.

Mayra Flores was born and raised with humble beginnings in Burgos Tamaulipas, Mexico. Her parents and grandparents raised her with strong conservative values and taught her to always put God and family first. She came legally to the United States at six years old with the help of her father. Her father gave her family the biggest gift, the gift of becoming a proud, naturalized American citizen.

Her parents were migrant workers, and like all migrant kids, she moved a lot growing up. She spent most of her life in the Rio Grande Valley and in 2004, she graduated high school in San Benito, TX. Growing up, Mayra worked alongside her parents in the cotton fields in Memphis, TX to earn extra money for school clothes and supplies. Instilling the value of hard work and the importance of education in her at a young age, Mayra remains a firm believer in the American Dream and will always fight so that others can achieve it as she has. She is eternally grateful to her parents for providing her with an opportunity to come to this amazing country to live the American Dream. Mayra graduated in 2014 as a Respiratory Care Practitioner with the support of her family. She currently works caring for the elderly and disabled with chronic respiratory issues and has been on the front lines helping patients combat COVID-19. She continued her studies and graduated with a Bachelors in Organizational Leadership from South Texas College. Mayra currently serves as the Hidalgo County GOP Hispanic Outreach Chair and has played a critical role in growing and maintaining Republican support across South Texas. She believes that having a strong relationship with the community and understanding the needs of each individual should be a requirement for any political candidate.

Mayra believes in fortifying our legal immigration system, in securing our borders, lowering the costs of health care, lowering taxes, promoting small businesses, and less government. She is a Pro-Life, Pro-Second Amendment, and Pro-Law Enforcement candidate that wants to earn your vote. She is a proud U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) wife and a mother, fighting for a better future for the children of South Texas.
