October 17—Today, the Democratic Party of New Mexico issued a statement in response to the Texas National Guard installing a concertina wire barrier along the Texas and New Mexico borders in an attempt to curb the dramatic increase in illegal migrant crossings.
On October 9th, Texas Governor Greg Abbott posted on X, “Migrants are entering New Mexico illegally then crossing into Texas. We are stopping it.”
The Democratic Party of New Mexico condemned the border security measure and is calling for the removal of the wire barrier “effective immediately.”
“It’s unbelievable that the Democratic Party of New Mexico would call to remove any barrier from along New Mexico’s southern border when fentanyl, cartels, human traffickers, and members of terror watchlists pour through the open border daily,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce.
There have been 7.5 million border crossings since Biden took office, including over 1.6 million known “gotaways.” Over 100,000 Americans died in one year from fentanyl overdoses. That’s twice as many deaths as the Vietnam War over the span of 20 years! Bernalillo County is one of the top 10 counties with the highest fentanyl overdose deaths.
When will progressives realize their careless policies are frighteningly dangerous?
We appreciate the Texas Governor taking border security seriously, unlike New Mexico’s Democratic delegation, who’ve chosen to ignore the cries for help from our southern border communities entirely.”
