I first learned about Agnes Gibboney’s story in April, 2018. For LFR readers who aren’t familiar with my post about Agnes, make sure you check it out. After you do that, check out Agnes’ campaign website and learn about Agnes.

Having had the privilege of getting to know Agnes, I can state emphatically that Agnes is the personification of a patriot. When I spoke with her this afternoon, the first thing that impressed me about Agnes is that she isn’t a politician. She’s a doer. She’s running for the congressional seat currently occupied by Congressman Pete Aguilar. The comparison couldn’t be more stark. Agnes’ opponent is a cookie-cutter politician.

On immigration, Agnes’ opponent said “Both parties need to come together to pass comprehensive immigration reform that keeps families together, provides a pathway to citizenship, protects people who were brought to the United States as children from deportation, while also protecting the border and our national security.” Later, he exposed himself as an open borders Democrat:

We need an immigration policy that builds bridges, not walls and keeps families together instead of tearing them apart.

By comparison, Agnes was born in “Budapest, in Soviet controlled communist Hungary.” They wanted to live in the United States “but they were not allowed that choice. They eventually immigrated to Brazil, waiting thirteen years for the family’s US immigration application to be accepted.” Eventually, Agnes became a US citizen.

Agnes is an Angel Mom, having lost her son Ronald when he was 29. Ronald “was murdered by a previously deported illegal alien gang member.” Immigration isn’t just a policy issue. It’s part of who she is. Agnes told me that she wants to “be part of the solution” that finally fixes the US immigration laws, including the asylum laws. While she is a proponent of President Trump’s wall, she admits that a wall by itself isn’t enough.

Agnes said that this presidential election will be a choice between President Trump and a socialist. Agnes plans to help President Trump keep the economy strong. By comparison, Agnes’ opponent said that “I stood up to Republican efforts to give a massive tax cut to the wealthy while leaving middle-class families to foot the bill.” That’s an outright lie. Guy Benson’s tipsheet article notes this:


It’s time to fire career politicians like Pete Aguilar, Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi. These politicians couldn’t tell the truth if their lives depended on it.
