New Mexico Governor Withdraws National Guard from U.S.-Mexico Border

HeadlineFeb 07, 2019

Back in the United States, New Mexico’s Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has recalled most of her state’s National Guard troops from the U.S.-Mexico border, where they’d been stationed by her Republican predecessor at President Trump’s behest. Gov. Grisham timed her rebuke of Trump’s border policy to coincide with Tuesday’s State of the Union address, when she tweeted a previously unaired video from her successful 2018 gubernatorial campaign.

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham: “I’m Michelle Lujan Grisham. New Mexico is 49th in employment and 50th for schools. We’ve got to bust through some walls to make changes.”
