I am concerned that the so-called America Competes Act does nothing to address China’s stranglehold over the critical minerals supply chain, even when America has the ability and expertise to take charge of our own future and supply.

Watch my opening statement at yesterday's Conference Committee Hearing-->

RECA Extension PASSES

I am THRILLED that the House has passed the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) Extension.

This legislation is vital to ensuring that the men and women who were harmed by the development and testing at the dawn of the nuclear age are compensated by the government that put them in harms way. My constituents – the uranium miners, mill workers, uranium ore transporters, and those who lived downwind of atmospheric nuclear tests, deserve our thanks and assistance and I am proud to have fought for this legislation."

Just last month, I held a public meeting in Grants, New Mexico, where community members shared their stories. Many of these men and women were post-1971 uranium workers or downwinders who are not yet eligible for RECA benefits. Listening to their stories drove home that there is still a lot of work left to do to make sure these people are made whole.

Rep. Yvette Herrell gave this speech just before the House of Representative passed the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) Extension, following her m...

In the midst of a national crime wave, while the media and movie stars revel in outrageous lies and hatred toward police officers, it is more important than ever that we support the brave men and women of law enforcement.

They had our backs, now we have theirs.

Gas prices hit a record high on Tuesday, surpassing records set in March

$4.37 is now the national average for a gallon of gas. In places like Sierra and Catron Counties, AAA reports the average has already broken the $4.50 mark.

This is unsustainable for New Mexico's hardworking families.

We need to pass the PUMP Act to suspend the federal gas tax and the POWER Act to reverse President Biden's illegal ban on oil and gas leases. Moreover, we need leadership in the White House and Congress who champion American energy independence, not go begging to authoritarian governments to increase THEIR output.

Experts say gas prices could continue to climb through Memorial Day, and drivers can expect volatility in the summer months.

My veterans liaisons got together with Disabled Veterans of America Commander Kevin Dasing for an outreach event at the Solstice Senior Living Center, very helpfully coordinated by a fellow veteran, Katherine Bariat. Much love to our vets and active duty service members!

The baby formula supply problem is getting worse

Expensive gas, groceries, and inflation--now the Biden administration can add a baby formula shortage to their list of "accomplishments" for Americans in the last year.

I am proud to work every day to lower the cost of living for American families. I can't wait until we have a President who wants to do the same.

For months stores nationwide have been struggling to stock enough baby formula. Manufacturers say they're producing at full capacity and making as much formula as they can, but it's still not enough to meet current demand.

Was your property affected by the recent fires?

Come learn about the US Forest Service Burn Area Emergency Response (BAER) process and methods that landowners can implement post-fire from the Forestry Division of the New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department.

Opportunities are available to get public assistance from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) through the Emergency Watershed Protection Program. There will be a general question and answer session with presenters. Cooperator staff will be available for individual questions and answers after the
presentations.

I am glad that dozens of my House colleagues joined me in urging DHS Secretary Mayorkas to recognize the vital role that Title 42 border health protections play in protecting our communities from the scourge of synthetic opioids, which are now a leading cause of death among young Americans.

The Biden administration has admitted that, if they succeed in trashing Title 42, an even worse wave of illegal immigration and smuggling will result. We need to act NOW to save lives!

On this National Day of Prayer, I hope that all New Mexicans of faith--whether Democrat, Republican, Independent, anything--will join me in this profound request to God:

May our country be at peace.
May our families and communities prosper.
May our public servants work and lead us in a good direction.
May we always serve the poor, the downtrodden, the victim, the sick, the addict, and those who seek forgiveness.
May the men and women of Law Enforcement and the Military discharge their duties with honor, and come home safe.
And may we always treat each other as we would wish to be treated.

Amen.

Exclusive - Sen. Ted Cruz Bill: Keep Title 42 Until Biden Drops Coronavirus Restrictions

Big thanks to Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Cynthia Lummis for
introducing my PAUSE Act in the Senate to preserve Title 42 protections! We must do everything we can to protect our borders and the health of America's families.

Sen. Ted Cruz proposed a bill that would block Joe Biden's lifting of Title 42 until the administration lifts all coronavirus restrictions.

Supreme Court Live Updates: Supreme Court Confirms Leaked Opinion But Says the Draft Is Not a Final Decision

The possible leak of a Supreme Court decision is an unprecedented attack on the independence of the court. But if SCOTUS indeed leans toward protecting Life, I hope you will join me in praying that they decide wisely.

The draft opinion, which is not expected to be finalized for another month or more and could change, would leave it to individual states to determine abortion’s legality. Democrats are vowing to fight to protect abortion rights, while Republicans are condemning the leak.

Female students should compete against each other, NOT men and boys who suddenly decide they're girls. Full stop.

I am proud to urge New Mexico's Attorney General Hector Balderas to protect women's sports and join 15 other state AG's in protesting Joe Biden's plan to destroy Title IX protections for female athletes.

The federal government--or any government--has no business setting up a "Ministry of Truth" to control the news, opinions, and debates of its citizens.

The radical Left couldn't stop making inane comparisons to George Orwell's 1984 when President Trump was in office. Now, they're more than happy to establish official propaganda departments as long as THEY get to be the ones controlling people.

Sickening.

The next GOP president must abolish this office and scatter its ashes to the four winds.

Albuquerque is becoming one of the most dangerous cities in the nation, and the DOJ continues to hamstring local law enforcement.

I know I didn't vote for this. Heck, I know my friends and neighbors who DID vote for Joe Biden didn't vote for this. Our families deserve better.

It was the first negative reading for gross domestic product since the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.

My great Veterans Liaison, Rick Pineda, attended the New Mexico Department of Veterans' Services 2022 Military Honors and Training Competition. Thanks to all our amazing veterans and active duty service-members who made it a wonderful day!

If you are a veteran or have veterans in the family, and need help with a government agency or program, don't hesitate to contact my office. I'm privileged to have veterans on my team who work every day to make sure that everyone who has served our country gets the care and respect they deserve.

Big Bend Sector would like to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of retired Supervisory Border Patrol Agent William “Cliff” Millican who passed away on Monday. Cliff entered on duty with the United States Border Patrol on September 24, 2000 as a part of class 453. His first duty station was at the Fort Stockton Station. He transferred to the Sanderson Station on October 12, 2008 and promoted to Supervisory Border Patrol Agent there on March 25, 2012. Cliff served the United States Border Patrol for 20 years until his retirement on December 31, 2020. Cliff will be deeply missed.
