Albuquerque, NM – The Constitution protects the rights of all New Mexicans and all Americans.
Today, Attorney General Hector Balderas responds to President Trump’s proposal to scale back
transgender rights in America:
“To discriminate against transgender Americans by regulating away their very identity is
disgraceful,” said Attorney General Hector Balderas. “I will continue to fight against every one
of President Trump’s anti-American and inhumane attempts to dehumanize and exclude
vulnerable populations.”

At the center of the seal is a gradient circle with a dark blue roman-inspired Pillar in the shape of New Mexico.
