Miguel Levario Talks About His Run for Texas District 19
Thursday on KFYO Mornings Miguel Levario joined Dave King and Matt Martin to talk about his run in the congressional race for Texas District 19 again congressman Jodey Arrington.
Miguel was born and raised in El Paso but has lived in Lubbock for 10 years with his wife and 2 children. "I've always been an active member of my community here in Lubbock," Levario said. "I felt that his was a good way to serve my community."
When asked about border security, Levario stressed that he is not a supporter of Trump's plan to build a wall along the US-Mexican border. He believes that during the end of the Obama administration that net migration was almost 0 and that the border was the safest it has ever been. "We can't look at migration and national security and even the drug was as a consolidated issue. I think they are separate issues...we've always depended on migration," Levario said.
When asked about the renegotiation of NAFTA and trade agreements that would affect Texas agriculturally, Levario said, "We need trade agreements in order for our farmers to be profitable. When you start threatening these particular agreements it becomes very problematic," going on to say, "It is important to protect our farmers." He also spoke on protecting the longevity of our farmers.
Finally Levario spoke on health care. He commented that Americans are not looking to take steps backwards on the Affordable Health Care Act and that we need to make sure that health care is affordable for Texans.
