Luján Statement on Senate Passage of the Respect for Marriage Act

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate passed the Respect for Marriage Act to protect marriage equality:

“Today, the Senate sent a resounding message to same-sex and interracial couples all across our nation: Love is love. Despite threats made by extremists on the Supreme Court, the passage of the Respect for Marriage Act will provide these couples peace of mind and certainty by ensuring that their marriages are protected under federal law.

“This historic legislation is an important, long overdue step that is supported by a large majority of Americans. I’m proud to join the Senate in affirming what New Mexicans have long understood – that every couple deserves dignity and equal protection under law. I look forward to this legislation swiftly passing the House, and then to President Biden’s desk for signature, making marriage equality the law of the land.”
