Yvette Herrell on Civil Rights

 

 


Condemns racism, but widely blown out of proportion

Q: Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?

A: I condemn racism completely however I believe this has now become widely blown out of proportion and a name calling ploy to promote disunity by my opposition.

Must follow court ruling, but open to amending Constitution

Q: Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

A: I am supportive of protecting businesses and people in their beliefs, but I think that that supreme court has ruled on this. Is the question suggesting that we ignore what the court has held? I would not support ignoring the court. I would support asking the people if they want to change the constitution.

Systemic racism in law enforcement a false narrative

While racism certainly exists in our society, we have made much progress. However, there are government policies and programs that contribute to racism We should continue to strive for a colorblind society and fight against racial prejudice and discrimination in all forms. We should also fight against those who would seek to turn us against one another and perpetuate the false narrative of systemic racism within law enforcement, which is a tremendous threat to domestic security.

Oppose making state agencies address institutional racism

Analysis of SB269 by NM News Port: The bill would require state agencies to be develop and implement their own policies decreasing institutional racism. All state agencies would also be required to report annually to the legislature.

Analysis by BillTrack50: The Rio Grande Foundation, whose mission is to inform citizens of the importance of individual freedom & limited government, says, "SB269 wastes time and resources by requiring state agencies to develop and implement policies to decrease 'institutional racism'."

Veto Message: I cannot support a bill that would place such a tremendous burden on our state agencies without any assurance that the bill would actually identify or reduce institutional racism in the workplace.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 24-13-5, Roll Call #413 on Mar/10/17; Passed House 36-27-7, Roll Call #575 on Mar/18/17; State Rep. Yvette Herrell voted NO; Vetoed by Governor Susana Martinez on Mar/30/17.
