This is the message from a mother in Texas who is taking to social-media to say that she won.
In a message on Facebook, Kayla L. Hurd posted that she and her husband, Brian, decided to stay home after their daughter, Brianna, graduated from high school last year.
They plan to spend the holidays with their children in Mexico.
But now they’re facing a backlash from friends and family.
Hurd posted on Facebook that she had planned to fly out to Mexico to visit her daughter, but her plane took off the night before her daughter graduated.
“I have a 2-year-old son, and I can’t just leave him in a foreign country for a year,” she wrote.
“My husband and I are not going to leave our little girl alone for another year.”
Her message has been shared nearly 40,000 times.
Huckabee respondsThe former presidential candidate and 2016 Republican presidential candidate has been responding to the backlash on social media.
“My wife and I had a hard decision to make,” he wrote.
“We knew this was a tough decision for us, but we made it.
We did the right thing and we have to be grateful for the support of all of you.
I know it is frustrating to have this public discussion, but I think that’s the right way to go.
I am thankful for the love and support that has been so great.”
The former Texas governor has been working on immigration reform since coming to Washington, D.C., in 2016.
He is one of the co-sponsors of the House bill to create a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States.
In 2016, Hurd signed into law a bill that would allow undocumented immigrants to apply for work permits, but the law was challenged in court by President Donald Trump and others.
Hudders was removed from the House Ways and Means Committee last year after it was discovered that he and other lawmakers had misused the committee’s resources and staff, according to a report by the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
