From the Office of U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM-01) released the following statement after several Governors announced they were canceling the deployment of their National Guard Troops to the border:
“I call on Gov. Martinez to immediately recall the deployment of New Mexican National Guard troops to the border and stop providing resources to further President Trump’s inhumane immigration policies. Using New Mexico personnel and hard-earned taxpayer dollars to support an Administration that is tearing children from their parents is sickening. We have a responsibility to stand up to policies that betray our most basic values.
“Right now, New Mexicans are battling fires that are destroying thousands of acres of forest and threatening life and property. Gov. Martinez should immediately redeploy these limited resources to help protect dozens of communities across the state that are in danger of being destroyed.”
