Ben Ray Lujan said : “The conversations [I have had] with Tribal leaders and Pueblo leaders have made clear that the coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated challenges and inequities that long existed before COVID-19. The inequities include a lack of access to broadband, insufficient housing support, barriers to ensuring an accurate Census count, and a failure to guarantee access to the ballot box. Simply put, the federal government is not living up to its trust responsibilities. Housing, water, health care, road, and broadband projects are underfunded and often wait for federal approval while communities suffer. These failures span many decades and presidential administrations, and it’s not acceptable,” External link

Ben Ray Lujan : “I support moving forward with an impeachment inquiry, which will continue to uncover the facts for the American people and hold this president accountable. This is not a position I've reached lightly. The Trump presidency is creating grave national security concerns. Our country's intelligence agencies have confirmed that the Russian government attacked America during the 2016 elections. Numerous experts have warned that these attacks are ongoing to this day. And when faced with this evidence from his own government, President Trump has failed to act. Not only has he ignored the warnings that our Democracy is being targeted, but he has also actively encouraged Russian interference. When Special Counsel Mueller released his report, I read it in full. I was alarmed by the Trump campaign and the Trump White House's brazen disregard for the rule of law. The report detailed sustained and frequent attempts by the Trump campaign to establish ties to the Russian government and an eagerness to benefit from hacked information stolen from our fellow Americans. The Special Counsel also detailed ten different attempts by President Trump to obstruct justice during the investigation. This would be unacceptable behavior from any president. President Trump’s lack of action is jeopardizing our elections, national security, and Democracy. What is evident is that President Trump is abdicating his responsibility to defend our nation from Russian attacks and is putting his own personal and political interests ahead of the American people” External link

Ben Ray Lujan said : “Throughout my time in Congress, I’ve fought to ensure justice for communities impacted by radiation exposure – including miners, workers, and downwinders.

The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act Amendments of 2019 will help right past wrongs and I’m proud to champion this effort in the Congress” External link

Ben Ray Lujan said : “The conversations [I have had] with Tribal leaders and Pueblo leaders have made clear that the coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated challenges and inequities that long existed before COVID-19. The inequities include a lack of access to broadband, insufficient housing support, barriers to ensuring an accurate Census count, and a failure to guarantee access to the ballot box. Simply put, the federal government is not living up to its trust responsibilities. Housing, water, health care, road, and broadband projects are underfunded and often wait for federal approval while communities suffer.

Ben Ray Lujan : “I support moving forward with an impeachment inquiry, which will continue to uncover the facts for the American people and hold this president accountable. This is not a position I've reached lightly. The Trump presidency is creating grave national security concerns. Our country's intelligence agencies have confirmed that the Russian government attacked America during the 2016 elections. Numerous experts have warned that these attacks are ongoing to this day. And when faced with this evidence from his own government, President Trump has failed to act. Not only has he ignored the warnings that our Democracy is being targeted, but he has also actively encouraged Russian interference. When Special Counsel Mueller released his report, I read it in full. I was alarmed by the Trump campaign and the Trump White House's brazen disregard for the rule of law. The report detailed sustained and frequent attempts by the Trump campaign to establish ties to the Russian government and an eagerness to benefit from hacked information stolen from our fellow Americans. The Special Counsel also detailed ten different attempts by President Trump to obstruct justice during the investigation. This would be unacceptable behavior from any president. President Trump’s lack of action is jeopardizing our elections, national security, and Democracy. What is evident is that President Trump is abdicating his responsibility to defend our nation from Russian attacks and is putting his own personal and political interests ahead of the American people” External link

Ben Ray Lujan said ( about Martin Heinrich ) : “The theft of Tribal heritage items has been a reprehensible injustice for far too long,” “I’m proud to work with Sen. Martin Heinrich to move forward legislation to prohibit the exploitation of sacred Native items by outlawing their exportation and increasing penalties for those who traffic in cultural patrimony. We have a responsibility to lend our voices to Native communities seeking to safeguard their heritage, sovereignty, and knowledge, and the introduction of this legislation is an important step. I am hopeful that the immense bipartisan and bicameral support will build momentum for this critical piece of legislation and that honoring our trust responsibility to Tribes will continue to be a priority for this Congress” External link

Ben Ray Lujan said : “Throughout my time in Congress, I’ve fought to ensure justice for communities impacted by radiation exposure – including miners, workers, and downwinders. Radiation exposure has taken the lives of too many and continues to hurt our communities. I know how important this legislation is for New Mexico families that have been affected. This legislation will extend compensation for those individuals who played a role in our national security and help make those individuals whole,” “Radiation exposure disproportionally impacted Tribal communities and Native Americans in New Mexico – a health, justice, and fairness disparity that has lingering impacts to this day. The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act Amendments of 2019 will help right past wrongs and I’m proud to champion this effort in the Congress” External link
