Statement from Congresswoman Herrell
Alamogordo, N.M. — Congresswoman Yvette Herrell (R-N.M.) released a statement following President Joe Biden's Address to a Joint Session of Congress:
“In his first 100 days, President Biden has effectively opened our borders and closed federal lands to future oil and gas production. The border crisis he created threatens to reverse our hard work to halt the spread of COVID-19 in our communities and his anti-energy agenda could destroy more than 60,000 good-paying jobs in New Mexico by the middle of his term. This is exactly the opposite of what my constituents in the Second Congressional District want out of Washington.
“For someone who calls for unity and bipartisanship, President Biden has completely caved to the radicals and socialists in the Democrat party. In just 100 days, Congress and this administration have pushed to infringe on our Second Amendment rights, raise our taxes, defund the police, pack the Supreme Court, and promote abortion at home and abroad. If the president and his allies on Capitol Hill continue to get their way, they’ll have enacted almost $10 trillion in spending in a single year – more than the total combined wages paid to all American workers each year.
“I will continue to oppose the radical left-wing agenda and unlimited spending spree being pushed by the Biden administration and congressional Democrats.”
