New Mexico county declares state of emergency over influx of migrants: report


By Bradford Betz | Fox News

New Mexico rancher calls out state's governor for withdrawing National Guard from border

Reaction and analysis from rancher Kris Massey on 'Fox & Friends First.'

A New Mexico county on Wednesday declared a state of emergency over an influx of immigrants crossing the border in recent months and asked the governor to send in the National Guard for protection, according to a report

Otero County, which touches neighboring El Paso, issued a declaration Wednesday that urged Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham to deploy National Guard Troops and reopen Customs and Border Patrol checkpoints to stem the flow of drugs and other illegal activity at the border, The Alamogordo Daily News reported.

Grisham’s predecessor, Gov. Susana Martinez, deployed 200 National Guard troops to New Mexico’s border with Mexico in April 2018. But Grisham removed the guardsmen from the border ahead of President Trump’s State of the Union, in a rejection of “the federal contention that there exists an overwhelming national security crisis at the southern border, along which are some of the safest communities in the country.”

Otero County Commissioners have threatened legal action if their demands were not met in one week.

“If this demand is not met by the State of New Mexico in one week’s time, the County of Otero will take action itself to provide security and safety and well-being for the people in this county,” Otero County Commission Chairman Couy Griffin said.

The county’s board of commissioners voted unanimously on the declaration. In response, Grisham’s office said the “National Guard does not and would not operate federal checkpoints,” and instead directed Otero County officials to the Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management for assistance.

Man I feel for those people down there. I hate to say it but Trump could shut it off like a switch if he wanted to. We have thousands of guardsmen up here that are looking for stuff to do! They would be willing and are able!

Our new governor is a worthless pile of liberal crap. I bet these border militias came from Southern NM and have the help of Texas. They did once before.

You can sure bet those Texans are watching this. They have before. With all of the prpoerty they own in NM.
They have a stake in this also. So does the Apache Nation. This stupid governor only got elected because of
the North. She apparently didn't do her homework about the South.

It's getting about time that people took the law into their own hands.
When they catch border jumpers coming across, make'em jump as they run back across the border under a hail of bullets.

Or, make it a felony to hire an illegal, with a minimum of one year in jail for each one you hire, and no early release.

We are a state guys. And we would chip in and help anyone of you. We were the ones who died in the Batton death march. But we got even with Corona. Roswell rejoyced when we saw that light, then the news.

A joke, we are Texas mean little little sister.

Can't do that the big money political masters (both sides) won't allow it.

Naw, send Mexico a nice big Corona with a lime in it. Compliments of NM.

The only way this crap will stop is if a bunch of them get killed. We have the tright to DEFEND our borders. They do NOT have a right to invade us. CHAELIE.
