Commissioner of Agriculture Sid Miller
Monica De La Cruz-Hernandez comes from humble beginnings. Her grandmother immigrated to the United States as a child to flee political injustice in Mexico. Monica’s grandfather was a first-generation American, and proudly served in the U.S. Navy. Monica’s mother, Norma, singlehandedly raised her and her brother in Brownsville, Texas. Growing up, Monica’s family built strong foundations of perseverance, respect, and courage that motivated Monica to be involved in community leadership roles from a young age. She served as class president and head cheerleader at James Pace High School and as an altar server at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Living on the border and attending a public high school, Monica saw firsthand the effects of a broken immigration system and failed government policies.
Monica’s mother knew the value of a good education and service to our county. Norma encouraged both her children to apply to universities and consider military service. Monica attended the University of Texas at San Antonio, where she worked and took out student loans to put herself through college. Her brother Carlos served honorably in the Air Force and retired after 20 years of service. While at school, she became a UTSA ambassador and vice president of Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity. Upon graduation, Monica felt compelled to learn more about her roots. She applied for a Spanish language studies program and attend La Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico. After this experience abroad, Monica applied for an internship with Turner Entertainment and was selected out of 300 applicants. She went on to work with TNT and Cartoon Network Latin America in Atlanta, Georgia.
Roots in the Rio Grande Valley
Monica decided she wanted to return to her roots in the Rio Grande Valley, where she eventually opened her own insurance agency. Monica found immediate success in her new venture, becoming the first new female agent in the Rio Grande Valley to earn the prestigious President’s Club award, an honor bestowed upon the top 50 agents in the country.
In 2016, a national company was forced to shut down her husband’s entire division in an effort to save money. With their community in the midst of hardship and close friends uncertain of what the future held, Monica and her husband formed Navi Business Group. With this new venture, they purchased all the equipment from her husband’s ex-employer, and put people back to work. They hired former workers who had lost their jobs, and taught others how to open their own businesses so they could find their own success.
Monica’s tenacity is shaped by a history of resilient, independent women and men who proudly served their country. Monica’s story includes one of struggle and opportunity. She used her life experience to fuel her desire to achieve the American Dream. Today, Monica and her husband own several successful companies and are proud small business owners. They currently live in Edinburg with their three children.
District 15Monica’s deep community roots and desire to serve inspired her to run as District 15’s Republican candidate for U.S. Congress. She knows that District 15 is full of vibrant, hard-working individuals from the border of Mexico to the heart of Texas. Even though this District is diverse in every way, Monica lives in the lower region of District 15 in Edinburg, Texas and has even made a second home in Seguin, Texas in order to better understand the needs of her District. She is currently the only Republican candidate who lives in district, making her the most qualified to be the voice of District 15. She fully intends to fight for the citizens of District 15 on the national stage once she is voted into Congress as The People’s Voice, The People’s Choice.
2nd AmendmentWhen our country was founded, the government ensured us the right to bear arms, and now there are those who are trying to infringe on that right. As a Conservative Republican, I will fight for your rights under the Constitution to keep your fire arms so that you can protect your home and your family.
Family Values and Precious LifeFamilies are strongest when they stay together, and that’s why Monica is dedicated to the sanctity of marriage. District 15 can expect to see Monica’s conservative family values at work when she represents them in Washington, D.C. Strong family values in America are key to honoring the precious gift of life. Monica believes that human life begins at conception, and she’ll fight for that value in Congress.
Immigration and U.S. Border SecurityImmigration reform in the U.S. has been a hot button topic, and immigration reform in Congress has failed at every attempt. Monica’s experience living on the border helps her have a better understanding of the need for border security and immigration reform. Monica believes that we should lean on the expertise of Border Patrol on what the best measures to protect our border and citizens are. She will work to dispel the controversies on U.S. border security while in Congress, focusing on reform to keep people from coming in the wrong way. We need a strong border to protect our American citizens first.
Small Business SupportAs a small business owner herself, Monica is dedicated to pursuing support for small business growth and development. As your Conservative Republican candidate, Monica believes that small businesses should have less taxes and less government interference.
