a Few hours before the President’s speech to the Nation, has announced the Governor of the US state of New Mexico, Michelle Lujan Grisham, to set-off the majority of the national guard from the border with Mexico. “I reject the claim that the southern border is a national security crisis,” said the head of government. Only in some districts, the army reserve should remain posted, as residents and officials had asked for it, so Grisham. The troops would be there to support refugees and asylum seekers.
Contradictory statements to the situation at the border
Grisham’s decision is in contradiction with the statements of Donald Trump. The US President is pushing for the election in 2016 on the construction of a wall on the border with Mexico, because “the masses of migrants” would cause an “overwhelming security crisis”, which was only overcome with the help of a physical barrier. In order to get the necessary funds approved, and had Trump refused in December, the release of the US budget, which has led to the longest government closure in the history of the country.
In his speech to the Nation, Trump repeated his call for a wall. “Walls work, and walls to save a life. I’m going to get built,” he said before the US Congress. With this promise, which is rejected by most experts, such as opposition from the Democrats, the US President at his core electorate in the word. He repeatedly denounces about the treks of Central American migrants as a “massive attack” on the country, as well as the rampant drug smuggling.
other States should withdraw troops
the leaders of The affected States, but to other experiences. In its statement, Grisham asked the Governor-colleagues, among other things, of Arkansas, Kentucky and South Carolina, also the state troopers to deduct, which have been ordered by Donald Trump in October. In New Mexico, which shares a 300-Kilometer-long border with Mexico, will now be deducted 118 forces members who had supported the local border officials.
