Occupation US Senator
As your Senator, we’ve passed legislation to deliver unprecedented investments for our children, our working families, and our seniors in New Mexico. Because of these investments, we’ve begun to see costs for things like groceries and prescription drugs go down and our economy grow, I’m running for reelection to the Senate because we still have more work to do, from tackling climate change to expanding access to health care to ensure that every New Mexican has the opportunity to thrive.
If reelected, my priorities will be to grow rural economies, reduce costs for New Mexico families, raise workers’ wages, expand access to health care, protect the rights of workers, and tackle climate change while creating high-quality jobs.
We should build on the Inflation Reduction Act, Infrastructure Law, and CHIPS and Science Act that we’ve passed into law and New Mexico is starting to feel the impacts of. The Inflation Reduction Act is bringing jobs to rural New Mexico, especially in clean energy manufacturing.The Inflation Reduction Act also lowered costs for prescriptions for seniors on Medicare and is making health insurance more affordable. The Infrastructure Law is bringing billions of dollars to New Mexico to rebuild roads, bridges, and energy infrastructure, and the CHIPS Act is bringing thousands of good paying jobs to expand manufacturing and strengthen our national security. Now it’s time to ensure every New Mexican can access the benefits of these historic laws.
We need solutions, not political stunts. We need to tackle the huge backlog of lawful immigration, so it doesn’t take years for a person’s paperwork to be processed. And we need to invest in smart border security technology that detects and stops drugs like fentanyl before they get into our communities. We need to staff and support the law enforcement agencies at our border that are helping to maintain our national security and efficiently process cross-border trade with our largest trade partner, Mexico. We need more pathways for skilled immigrants eager to fill labor shortages in industries with severe workforce shortages, like agriculture and health care. And we need to finally ensure DREAMers have a swift path to full citizenship.
Congress should pass legislation to get dark money out of our elections and give the American people transparency into who is attempting to influence their votes. Additionally, the Senate should end the filibuster to prevent a single Senator from disrupting the Democratic process and ensure working people in America have a real seat at the table in Washington.
