To the people of New Mexico's Second District,

Thank you for the opportunity to represent you in the US House of Representatives these last two action-packed years.

I have endeavored to defend your values, stand up for veterans and first responders, secure our borders, and be a voice for the ranchers, farmers, energy producers, and small businesses who keep our communities running.

During my time in Congress, I've had the privilege of meeting and working with countless great patriots in New Mexico, people who are willing to fight for freedom and prosperity.

These courageous men and women remain strong in hard times and don't care about what the media or the Washington Establishment says--as long as they're on the side of truth and justice.

These patriots are moms and dads, employees and business owners, police and military; some bring the great wisdom and experience of many years, and others have the youthful energy we need to carry the banner of liberty forward to the next generation.

All will play a part in saving our great nation.

That is why, as I depart Washington and head home to the plains and mountains we know so well, I know the future is in good hands, no matter what challenges lie ahead.

Serving the hardworking families of New Mexico has been my greatest honor, and I'm not done yet.

Sincerely,

Yvette Herrell

Border communities are being overwhelmed by illegal immigration. Joe Biden's refusal to enforce the law has caused unprecedented human misery.

We must restore our borders!

The U.S. Supreme Court has temporarily blocked the Biden administration from ending Title 42, the pandemic-era immigration policy that expelled migrants at the border out of health concerns.

If Mitch McConnell worked as hard with Democrats to secure the border as he does to spend YOUR money, our country would be in much better shape.

American families don't deserve more out of control spending in a lame duck session.

FDR:

"Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, members of the Senate and the House of Representatives: Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was at peace with that nation, and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese Ambassador to the United Statesand his colleague delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. And while this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or of armed attack.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Japanese Government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya.

Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.

Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam.

Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.

Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island.

And this morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday and today speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

But always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces—with the unbounding determination of our people—we will gain the inevitable triumph—so help us God.

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7th, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire."

Right on. America cannot thrive when our borders are controlled by people who hate American sovereignty and preside over an historic humanitarian crisis. Mayorkas should resign or be impeached.

To the Veterans of New Mexico, and all who serve our great country,

Thank you for your skills, your strength, and your sacrifices, which have kept America safe.

Thank you for the invaluable role you continue to play as patriotic pillars of our community.

104 years ago, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the guns of World War I finally fell silent, and Armistice Day was celebrated throughout the Western World. This was the first great conflict where citizens of the brand-new state of New Mexico would fight for their country--but it would not be the last.

In the following century, the courageous people of New Mexico would be on the front lines fighting for liberty and the safety of the folks back home. And in time, Armistice Day became a celebration of American service members of every era: Veterans Day.

If you have served, I thank you. And if you know someone who has served, please thank them. Today's observance is about bravery, duty, and sacrifice, but I believe it is about gratitude most of all.

It has been an honor and a privilege to represent New Mexico's veterans and their families in my time in Congress, and you will forever be first in my heart.

God bless you all, and may God bless America.

Sincerely,

Rep. Yvette Herrell

For six nights in December, Carlsbad Caverns National Park will offer visitors an opportunity to experience the wonders of Carlsbad Cavern and its colorful history in special guided tours. Dressed in historic costumes, park staff will guide visitors on a lantern-lit tour of the front half of the Big Room in Carlsbad Cavern.

This annual tradition, brought back in 2000, gives visitors the chance to “meet” some of the men and women who helped weave the fabric of this spectacular national park. The tour will feature a re-creation of the historic Rock of Ages Ceremony, which was regularly conducted in the Big Room during the 1930s and 1940s. During this portion of the tour, visitors will experience a “black out,” being immersed in total darkness, as a mysterious voice fills the cavern, singing the hymn “The Rock of Ages.”

Dates: December 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, and 17
Time: 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Fee: $55 per person

Reservations are required as each tour is limited to 30 people. Tickets may be purchased by phone at 575-236-1375 beginning November 25 through December 2 from 8 am to 10 am daily. For safety, wheelchairs and strollers are not permitted on this tour.

We can fix this cost of living crisis but it will take courage we aren't finding in the Oval Office right now:

STOP massive inflationary spending spree bills for special interests

STOP sending billions of American tax dollars to other countries, and invest them at home instead

UNLEASH American energy to drive down diesel and gas prices, lowering transportation costs for food

ELIMINATE burdensome regulations and taxes on farmers, ranchers, and food producers

CARLSBAD CURRENT ARGUS

President Biden's strategic petroleum reserve announcement is yet another example of failed energy policies

By U.S. Rep. Yvette Herrell

President Biden recently announced that he is authorizing the sale of an additional 15 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). This announcement comes on the back of the sale of over 100 million barrels from the SPR over last six months, leaving the SPR at its lowest level since 1984. These actions are solely a political gimmick and leave our countries’ national security irreparably harmed.

The decision to sell millions of barrels of oil from the SPR is and has always been a political calculation by President Biden to hide his disastrous energy record. The sole purpose of the SPR is to be used during times of war and national crisis, not to cover up the irresponsible policy decisions of a President. President Biden’s list of energy policy failures are numerous and include illegally refusing to hold lease sales on federal lands, cancelling the Keystone XL Pipeline, begging OPEC+ and other countries to increase production, and empowering Russia by greenlighting the Nordstream 2 pipeline in Europe.

Instead of weakening our national security and empowering our enemies through policy mistakes, I as your member of Congress have been committed to empowering domestic energy producers here in New Mexico.

New Mexico is uniquely positioned to play an integral role in filling the void left behind by OPEC’s decision to cut production. From the plentiful energy supply of the Permian Basin to the energy innovations being born in our state, New Mexico can lead our nation’s energy future and can help the United States take market share from Russia and OPEC.

The only thing standing in the way of that is inaction by our federal government and in some cases, the federal government actively preventing energy production from taking place.

By illegally preventing lease sales on federal lands in New Mexico for its first 18 months, the Biden Administration has prevented vital energy production from coming on-line. Additionally, the Biden administration has approved an average of 233 drilling permits per month, while the Department of Interior was approving nearly 400 drilling permits monthly in FY 2020 under former President Donald Trump. In fact, we as a nation are producing one million barrels of oil a day less than we were at the same time in 2019. This coupled with the fact that we have lost one million barrels a day in refining capacity due to the pandemic means we are limiting our marketable supply of energy when demand is increasing across the world.

The biggest question facing me as your representative is what I can do to fix it.

As your member of Congress, I have introduced and supported many pieces of legislation that will address the energy crisis we face. For example, my bill the American Energy Security and Transparency Act, would require the Biden Administration to immediately resume lease sales and prevent them from cancelling a lease sale again without the approval of Congress.

I have also introduced legislation to streamline and place timelines on the federal permitting process for all forms of energy production and transmission. Permitting for energy projects can sometimes take almost 10 years to complete, which disincentives private companies from investing in new projects to meet our energy demands. By limiting the amount of time projects can sit in permitting limbo, companies will have more confidence investing in our energy future.

The status quo of depleting our SPR for political gain and hampering domestic production is not sustainable and puts our countries’ and our allies’ national security at extreme risk. The solution to addressing our current energy crisis is simple, produce more energy here at home in places like New Mexico and get the heavy hand of the federal government out of the way of powering our nation’s future.

🚨 🚨 🚨

Right now in New Mexico, you have have a 1 in 129 chance of becoming a victim of violent crime. In Albuquerque, the biggest city in our state, you have a 1 in 75 chance.

Across the whole state, you have a 1 in 35 chance of being a victim of property crime. In Albuquerque, that skyrockets to 1 in 20.

With the new majority in January, the GOP will:

➡️ STOP the flow of fentanyl plaguing our communities
➡️ FUND and SUPPORT police
➡️ SECURE the southern border
➡️PROTECT law-abiding citizens and treat CRIMINALS as CRIMINALS
