Vehement opposition to Deb Haaland 'motivated by something other than her record'

Our public lands lie at the heart of our identity and shared heritage as Americans. These lands connect us with generations past, to our children and grandchildren, and they’re our link to future generations. To maintain this powerful bond, it is essential that our leaders care for our land, air, water and wildlife to ensure they flourish now and for future generations.

After four years of unbalanced development of our public lands, President Joe Biden has nominated Rep. Deb Haaland of New Mexico to lead the Department of the Interior to restore its mission of conserving the country’s “natural resources and cultural heritage for the benefit and enjoyment of the American people.” 

Haaland, through her life’s journey and her record in Congress, has shown that she understands we don’t inherit the earth from our parents — we borrow it from our children and the yet unborn. She knows the damage that unbalanced energy development can levy not only on our air, land and water, but also on the profound health and cultural costs that front-line and Native American communities are forced to endure.
