NM Governor Tells Her State Militia To Stop Arresting Illegals But Then Sheriff Clarke Responds

Apparently, the New Mexico governor is not too keen on the fact that her state militia is stopping illegals who cross the border.


In fact, she is so upset that the good people in her state are stopping these illegals flooding in the state that she has asked them to stop.

However, Sheriff David Clarke is not having any of it and is saying something back to the liberal governor.

NBC News reported:

“New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Friday lashed out at members of a militia group who are stopping migrants at the border, declaring “regular citizens have no authority to arrest or detain anyone.”

The American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico has demanded that Lujan Grisham and New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas investigate the militia organization, United Constitutional Patriots. Some of the group’s members are armed.

“That migrant families might be menaced or threatened in any way, shape or form when they arrive at our border — often times after an unimaginably arduous journey — is completely unacceptable,” Lujan Grisham said in an email to NBC News.

“It should go without saying that regular citizens have no authority to arrest or detain anyone,” she said. “My office and our state police are coordinating with the Attorney General’s Office and local police to determine what has gone on and what can be done.”

Sheriff Clarke Tweeted:

“This is the result when the government abandons its responsibility to enforce the law on behalf of the people of the state. They take their RIGHT to defend against invaders into their own hands. The social order collapses. NO ONE should be surprised.”
