She assures that she is serious about defending the people over politics. However, she is aware that many times some politicians distance themselves from what citizens are really experiencing.

“I was a state representative for eight years before I ran for Congress, so that gave me a great understanding of the nuances of the state,” Herrell said.

The congresswoman understands that Americans are currently facing inflation, which makes her recognize that citizens’ problems must again be put first in order to be solved.

“Americans are struggling to put food on the table, to buy gas and I’m really sad that we’re putting people in second place and that we’re putting everything else in the first place,” she said.

“Secure borders,” says Yvette Herrell

she added, “That’s why I have stood up to secure our border, to get people back to work, get our economy going, protect our oil and gas; and also protect our agricultural industries.”

Finally, she commented that Americans demand secure borders, but she also explained that having the right immigration policy is beneficial for those migrants who choose to come to the country legally.

“People want a secure border. What is happening is not fair to those people who came to my district through the right path and came to our nation legally.”
