New Mexico Democrat Governor BLOCKED from RELEASING Migrants in County
To be technical, the act of threatening to do such is a form of taking action on the matter as it pertains to blocking the decisions of the other side. So yes, if the New Mexico county official says he will declare a State of Emergency, the Democrat Governor won’t be able to release the migrants.
It’s a real block party in that county for sure.

“A New Mexico county commissioner is set to block the Democrat Governor from placing migrants in his county by declaring a “state of emergency” due to the border crisis and lack of resources.
NPR reported that Couy Griffin, chairman of the Otero County Board of Commissioners, was the force behind the surprise move last week when the county declared a state of emergency over the shuttered checkpoint.
“What I’m really hoping comes out of [this emergency declaration] is that our governor will recommission the National Guard which she pulled off of the border earlier this year,” he says.
Earlier this year, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham withdrew 118 National Guard troops from New Mexico’s southern boundary, calling President Trump’s policies a “charade of border fear-mongering.”
Since then, the El Paso Sector has been overwhelmed by illegal crossers. They’re apprehending 600 migrants a day — a 1,600% increase over the same time period last year.
So the Otero commissioners — all Trump supporters — asked the Democratic governor to redeploy National Guard to the checkpoints to stand in for overtaxed border officers.
The governor says if Otero County wants the checkpoints restaffed, they should write a letter to CBP, not the governor’s office. “
