a time when more and more of our rights as citizens
are being challenged by our government, New Mexico
has a congresswoman that has repeatedly stood
against our constitutional freedoms. Heather Wilson's
record on protecting the rights of her constituents
has earned her horrible scores from groups that
advocate for those rights.
this year Wilson voted to repeal protections by
voting for HR 1261. Her vote allowed organization
receiving federal funds to discriminate when hiring
employees. Heather Wilson also voted for the US
Patriot and has spoken in favor of the legislation
that gives the government greater power to monitor
citizens without their knowledge. For her votes
she received failing grades from the Human Rights
Campaign and The National Hispanic Leadership
Here is what Wilson has done for our civil liberties:
voted against a motion to recommit that would
outline that no provisions supersede state or
local civil rights laws.
did not accept a non-discrimination policy for
her congressional office.
Wilson voted for the US Patriot Act.
voted to allow employers receiving federal funds
to discriminate based on religion.
National Hispanic Leadership Agenda gave Heather
Wilson an 18% on their congressional scorecard.
Human Rights Campaign gave Heather Wilson a
0% for supporting human rights legislation.
Heather Wilson has a record of standing against
civil rights protections.
