We don’t usually hijack our own webpage to cover news items but in this case the humanitarian crisis at the border has just moved a little closer to home… Right down the road in Deming.
On Monday, May 13, 2019, the Deming City Council declared an emergency due to the delivery of 170 migrants who had been processed by the US Border Patrol and who were lawfully present in the United States. Following this, the Federal Government continued to drop more migrants, and the City established emergency shelters in an airport hanger at the Deming airport and at the Southwestern New Mexico Fairgrounds.
Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham visited these facilities on May 19, 2019, and initiated efforts to obtain appropriate assistance from the Federal Government. At this time, hundreds of migrants, lawfully present in the United States, are in need of assistance.
