So much for the border crisis being a charade – Gov. Grisham went to the Swamp to beg for help.

The radical-leftist governor of New Mexico, who sent National Guard troops packing in February, needs federal help now, it seems. She’s in the Swamp to beg for funding as illegal immigrants overwhelm the state. After months of neglecting the border cities and towns, toeing the DC elite party line of no “crisis” here, and facing a veritable citizens’ revolt in the Land of Enchantment, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham is demanding federal government assistance for the dire situation – one she exacerbated through indifference to constituents.

And it comes on the heels of yet another county drawing a line in the sand and refusing any further influx of illegal immigrants seeking asylum. Sierra County, boasting a population 11,116 and a 21% poverty rate, joined Otero and Lincoln counties in passing resolutions opposing the relocation of migrants to their communities.

This isn’t just happening in these three counties, either – it’s an untenable and cruel situation being thrust on an impoverished state by government officials who seem to be mere puppets for the Democratic Party.

According to Deming City Administrator Aaron Sera, in Luna County, buses unload between 300 and 500 immigrants each day. As a town of a 14,183, it has been mercilessly overwhelmed by the governor’s dangerous game of partisan politics. Even larger enclaves, such as Las Cruces, have been overrun with illegal aliens, completely depleting community and local government resources as they’re forced to house and care for 6,000 asylum seekers – and all in a matter of four short weeks.

Drawing An Uncrossable Line

Otero County Commission Chairman Couy Griffin is a vocal detractor of what he believes are dangerous decisions coming from Grisham. Griffin is an advocate of legal immigration and stands firm in the belief that sheltering illegals sends the wrong message to other Central Americans, who see an opportunity to enter the United States illegally. “If you begin to feed pigeons in the parking lot, pretty soon you have every pigeon in town,” Griffin said. He has asked President Trump to close the border after resources were removed from a local, heavily trafficked checkpoint.

Tripp Stelnicki, the governor’s spokesman, claims there is no evidence humanitarian aid would encourage other Guatemalans, El Salvadorans, or Hondurans to make the trek north. Well, it isn’t much of a deterrent, either.

The Watershed Decision

In February, Grisham made national news for thumbing her nose at the president, her citizens, and national security when she sent the National Guard packing. She blithely stated: “New Mexico will not take part in the president’s charade of border fear-mongering,” and received a blast of positive kudos from Democrat toadies in the Swamp. It fit their narrative perfectly and from a border state to boot.

    So how do we know the money will actually go to help the people of the State? I’m thinking it will go straight into the politician’s pockets with token amounts given to communities. These token abounts will be given out with lots of fan fare and little details of how much money is actually going to help them.

    The gov. is an idiot for pushing open borders, so let families move in with her, she can feed and clothe them. Idiots too for voting her in.
