Torres Small, who represents New Mexico's 2nd Congressional District, which shares about 180 miles (290 kilometers) of its southern border with Mexico, said Thursday that physical borders make sense when they are strategically placed.

Torres Small will chair the Subcommittee on Oversight, Management and Accountability for the Committee on Homeland Security, and will sit on the House Armed Services Committee.

New Mexico's other first-term congresswoman, Democratic Rep. Debra Haaland, who represents the 1st Congressional District, has been selected as vice chair of the House Committee on Natural Resources, chair of the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands, and will sit on the Subcommittee for Indigenous Peoples of the United States.
