LETTER TO GOV. NOT STRONG ENOUGH FOR

SE NEW MEXICO

 

 

Jal, New Mexico-  State Senator Gregg Fulfer (R-Jal) said  he did not sign the letter to the governor regarding migrants seeking asylum and  displacing New Mexicans at Expo New Mexico because he said the letter did not go far enough. He said it did not fully express his and many of  his constituents’ strong feelings about the matter.  Senator Fulfer said he does not want New Mexicans displaced at the fairgrounds and he does not want New Mexicans negatively impacted throughout the state because of illegal immigration.

 

 

“This illegal immigration is creating a crisis for us,” Senator Fulfer said today. “The governor apparently is not seeing what we are seeing in Southeastern New Mexico, we are in a crisis.  The illegal immigration  is severely impacting our students’ education, our healthcare system and things are not safe.  Our border communities are feeling that every day. I prefer all the illegal immigrants go directly to Santa Fe, don’t stop in any of our communities, go directly to the capital city so  our Governor can see first- hand  that there is a crisis.  I want the governor to see all the issues up close- issues of possible diseases being spread; issues of illegal drugs; and the issues surrounding  all of the  manpower that is demanded to handle this influx. I am concerned  that the crowds of illegal immigrants  are crowding out New Mexicans.”
