Texas GOP Rep. Mayra Flores says Speaker Nancy Pelosi ‘pushed’ her daughter during photo op


NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio!

During a picture opportunity last week, a newly elected congresswoman claimed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shoved her little daughter.

Rep. Mayra Flores (R-Texas) tweeted a video of the incident that happened during her swearing-in ceremony on June 21 and remarked, “I am very proud of my strong, beautiful daughter for not allowing this to faze her.”


Flores described her daughter’s photo-taking behavior as “continuing to smile and pose like a Queen.”

Pelosi can be seen in the video waving off-camera as she looks down at Flores’ daughter who is standing next to her and extends her elbow as the toddler leans to the side.

“No youngster ought to be pushed aside for a photo opportunity. PERIOD!!” In the tweet, Flores added.


Pelosi welcomed Flores, 30, who had just been elected to the House of Representatives when the event occurred.

Pelosi stated on Sunday, “It’s an honor to welcome Congresswoman Flores to the Capitol and to the United States Congress with great greetings.” And once more, I’m appreciative of her leadership and her lovely family members that are present today.

During the ceremony, Flores was also formally sworn in as a Member, making history as the first congressional representative of Mexican descent.


The event was successfully concluded with the two MPs shaking hands.

During the ceremony, Pelosi remarked, “Thank you Congresswoman Flores for your courage to run for office and best wishes for your success. Working with you is a privilege.

Flores, a vocal pro-life Texan, applauded the recent Roe v. Wade decision by the US Supreme Court.


“I praise God for today’s historic ruling by the Supreme Court. It is obvious that the Constitution never established a right to an abortion, and this decision justly transfers control over abortion regulation back to the people and their elected officials in the states. All life is valuable, and life triumphed today, she declared on social media.

According to her biography, Flores was born in Burgos, Tamaulipas, Mexico, and immigrated to the US lawfully when she was 6 years old. She later obtained naturalization as an American citizen.

She resided in the Rio Grande Valley, San Benito, and Memphis regions of Texas for the majority of her life.


In November, Flores will run against Vicente Gonzalez, the Democratic nominee.
