Yvette Herrell (NM-02)
Rep. Yvette Herrell won this expansive district in 2020 that now runs the full length of New Mexico’s border with Mexico. In June of last year, Herrell signed onto a bill in congress claiming the racist fiction about an active “invasion” at the southern border. The bill sought to allow states to use military force against asylum seekers and refugees. Herrell’s district borders the area around El Paso, where a mass murderer attacked customers at a Wal-Mart believing the racist lie that there was a “Hispanic invasion” and admitting to police that his goal was to “kill Mexicans.” Nevertheless, Herrell and her friends in the Republican Party echo these very same racist ideas.
Herrell has accepted thousands of dollars from her friend Brian Babin and $10,000 from Elise Stefanik’s superPAC. Learn more about these friends below.
