The newly elected Republican mayor of McAllen, Texas, Javier Villalobos attributes his win to Hispanics finally opening their eyes to what the Democratic Party has become.
To give you an idea about how incredible flipping the mayorship was is that Hillary won the county in 2016 by 40 points and Biden won by 20. The city is 85% Hispanic. Villalobos points out that Hispanics all along the border have been turning to the Republican Party.
McAllen is one of the most important border cities with detention centers set up for illegal border crossers. The city suffers as a result of all of the illegal aliens who cross at that point. And for Hispanic US citizens and legal immigrants, resent those who do not play by the rules as they did. Hispanics as a group are pretty conservative.
Mayor-elect Villalobos told Fox News that Hispanic voters who make up the vast majority of the voters have begun to open their eyes to the Democratic Party and they are rejecting it.
“Well, during the past election, it’s amazing what happened here in South Texas. I think genuinely the Hispanic community is very conservative, yet, traditionally, they voted Democratic. It’s amazing what happened this past election. I think our numbers as far as conservative voters were up by substantially.”
“Like I said, traditionally Democrat, however, they are a lot of individuals, including older individuals that have forever voted Democrat, [who] are opening up their eyes, accepting different ideas, both social and economic. And that’s amazing.”
“We expect next election, that we will have the same type of results. We have [Republican] candidates now running for Congress, when a lot of times it was very difficult to field a [Republican] candidate down here, especially local elections. I think things are going to be changing.”

Villalobos says that the major issue for those in McAllen, Texas is immigration and as hundreds of illegals flood the borders, it becomes a hardship for the people of the city.
They are not happy about the amount of money Biden is spending on illegal aliens, especially while he does nothing for the American people.
