Representative Mayra Flores has had a big week.
Like most of America, she took exception to First Lady Jill Biden comparing Hispanics to tacos and got pretty vocal about the situation on Twitter.
She did it in a very clever way, getting people laughing by responding that she just isn't the right kind of taco the next chance she got.
That chance came when Jill Biden and CNN said that Flores was not the real deal.
Well guess what Jill, Flores IS the real deal. This feud with the First Lady has given her a new uptick in national media attention, and she's making the most of it.
So what's she using her newfound national platform for now?
She's going after the cartel.
The White House seems insistent to ignore ALL problems with illegal immigration.
If the federal government isn't going to act, then people like Mayra Flores will.
"We need to defund the cartels," she began.
"Unfortunately, we have a border that is in control of criminal organizations. It is a sad reality, but no one can cross the border into this country without having to pay thousands of dollars to criminal organizations."
