Yesley Vega, the newly elected Republican nominee to represent Hispanic and the 7th Congressional District of Virginia, stressed that he was frustrated with the Democratic Party’s efforts to entangle the Hispanic community and that Democrats had “lost touch” with voters seeking change.
Vega, a longtime law enforcement officer in the state, told Fox News Digital on Wednesday, the day after her primary victory, that she was concerned about her goal in the general election and why some of the ideas offered by Republican candidates are leaning towards Hispanics. In many races across the country.
“You have a Democrat party that has completely lost touch with the Hispanic community,” Vega said.
“The Hispanic community is a community that has repeatedly shown how resilient they are.
House candidate Toutes Record says Sponberger was ‘the worst kind of politician’ before the Virginia GOP primary.
“They worked hard and many left their homeland and came to America for better opportunities not only for themselves but also for their children and their families. Some escaped socialism.”
Rep. Alexandria Occasio-Cortez, DN.Y. And Sen. Bernie Saunders, Vega warned against proponents of socialism such as the I-Vt. – The place where Vega said it was “eye-opening” to talk to people who still do not understand some of the problems going on in countries like Nicaragua is now run by a dictator.
“This is something that the Hispanic community largely rejects,” she said. “And look at our communities and how crime is on the rise.”
Vega said she was “scared” to hear what the Democratic Party had to say, describing the difficulties her parents were facing as she fled El Salvador amid the country’s civil war.
“To see how today’s Democrat Party has changed, it really scared not only me and my family, but Hispanic families across the United States,” Vega said. “The Hispanic community loves America because America is the land that gave them the opportunity.… So when you see the country you love being attacked and moving in the wrong direction, people are pressing their feet and saying ‘no’. More.”
Vega said the Republican Party continues to “fulfill the American dream and the American promise” and stressed that this is one reason why many Hispanic voters are beginning to elect Republicans.
During her presidency of the Glenn Youngkin campaign’s Latino Outreach program, Vega indicated that she could make new strides with the Hispanic community as a Republican.
“What we saw exceeded my expectations,” she said. “We talked to people about really important issues and we were able to connect with them. At the end of the day, people realized that you had a Democrat party pandering to the Hispanic community, but trying to change our language by using words like literally, literally, Latinx, the majority Hispanics used that word. Did not recognize and reject it. “
Explaining Hispanics, Vega said, “We are naturally people who believe in conservative principles, whether it is now or never.
“We are not the only group that cares about immigration,” she added. “We care about education, we care about the safety of our communities, we care about jobs, the cost of living. And we care about making sure America continues to be the America they know and love.”
Vega said she was still “choked” when she saw the American flag flying in the air and stressed that “there is no other country like America”. She says the US is “near perfect” in working towards a great goal.
“Many brave men and women have died for our freedom, and it’s time for us to remember what we are all doing,” she said, adding that she “worked hard for everything she’s earned in life.”
Vega questioned why she believes crime is on the rise and how she will work to combat illegal activities if elected to Congress.
Vega, who began his law enforcement career as a street cop in the Alexandria City Police Department, said, “It also comes down to failed leadership at the local level.
“When you have a Democrat majority, whether in the General Assembly or the Senate, what we’ve seen over the last few years is weakening the laws … literally tying the hands of law enforcement officers behind their backs, where the criminals are coming from. Committing crimes and facing no consequences.”

The actions taken against the perpetrators are “raising a generation that thinks they can break the law, do what they want and face no consequences,” Vega said.
In the November general election, Vega, whose brother almost lost his life to violence by MS-13 gang members, will face D-Va., The current representative representing the state’s 7th district in Congress since 2019.
Vega said she was “just holding Nancy Pelosi’s hand” as Spanberger not only “paired with Biden” but also did some controversial actions through the house.
“I’m a person driven by facts and data and at the end of the day, I think Abigail Sponberger can tell her all things and use floral language and she’s going to continue to deceive voters in the 7th District, but people can’t do that. I’m buying it,” Vega said. “People in her own party are not buying it and they are fed up with her failed leadership.”
