"Rep. Deb Haaland's comments calling Antifa "peaceful protestors" are reprehensible, and our Federal delegation should disavow Haaland's irresponsible and incorrect statement that goes against our American values.”

“Haaland's comments came the very same day that Antifa members carried out violent demonstrations in Portland, OR. As Townhall.com reported: "Dressed in black, some wearing masks, Antifa struck at the windows of buses carrying people on the right, sprayed pepper spray at them and tried to drag them out of the bus using a hammer. They broke a window on one of the buses...Police seized metal poles, bear spray and other weapons from Antifa.”

STATEMENT ON VICE PRESIDENT
PENCE'S VISIT TO NM

“Vice President Pence’s official visit to Artesia is highlighting the critical role that New Mexico plays in making America’s energy independence.

He will also highlight the importance of passing the USMCA agreement which plays a critical role in strengthening our state and national economy.”

Democratic Party of New Mexico Chair Marg Elliston released the following statement in response to Vice President Mike Pence’s planned visit to New Mexico:

“The Trump administration is sending Vice President Pence to New Mexico to distract from their long record of broken promises. Republicans claim that they’ll fight for working people, but then they turn around and offer tax breaks to billionaires and multinational corporations. New Mexicans see right through this hypocrisy, and that’s why we’re ready to put a Democrat in the White House in 2020.”
