Talk about being revealed as a liar: New Mexico’s hack Democrat Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, is demanding that the Trump administration send her millions to help solve the crisis on her southern border, but she is the exact same governor that pulled her national guard troops off the border because Trump is evil-orange-racist.
That’s right, a year ago there was no crisis on the border as far as Grisham was cncerned when she wanted to puff herself up as a Trump resistance queen, but now that she thinks no one is paying attention, suddenly there is a “crisis at the border.”
“I reject the federal contention that there exists an overwhelming national security crisis at the Southern border,” Lujan Grisham said, according to NPR.
Grisham’s comments came just ahead of Trump’s declaration of national emergency on the border earlier this year, so the Democrat gov. was attempting to grab pious, leftist headlines for herself.
But now, only three months after she exclaimed that there is no crisis on the border, Grisham is calling for help for the crisis at the border she said didn’t exist.
“According to KOAT-TV, Lujan Grisham met with federal officials in Washington, D.C., last week, including acting-Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, to discuss the ongoing crisis,” Blaze wrote.
Grisham is asking for the federal government to put more personnel on the border and give her more cash to help.
“The governor wants to continue to urge the federal government to increase its personnel on the border as a means of improving the logistical and communications output,” New Mexico spokesman, Tripp Stelnicki, told KOAT TV.
Republicans in New Mexico had a field day with Grisham’s sudden turnaround.
“She declares there’s no crisis. She removes the National Guard, and now she’s there asking for money,” New Mexico GOP Chairman Steve Pearce mocked, KOAT reported.
“Everything in her actions indicate that she believes there’s a crisis, but yet she will not dedicate the resources or request to her colleagues in Congress to start passing the laws that will change the situation there,” he criticized. “The border communities are going to continue to be overrun.”
She is a hypocrite. It’s just that simple.
