MLG deported illegal aliens to leftist ‘sanctuaries’ before it was cool

During President Donald Trump’s time in the White House, far-left Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM) did what Republican governors are now being attacked for — busing illegal aliens to “sanctuary cities” that protect criminal aliens.

According to the Associated Press, “When migrants overwhelmed cities and shelters in New Mexico in 2019, Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham moved several dozen of them by bus from border communities to Denver, where Christian congregations volunteered to provide shelter and aid. Fast forward to 2022 and there is little, if any, talk of transporting migrants away from the border by Lujan Grisham — or Republican nominee for governor Mark Ronchetti.”

In 2019, The Washington Post reported, “A busload of 55 migrants who had been arrested by U.S. border authorities and were then released into the United States left Las Cruces, N.M., on Sunday afternoon bound for Denver, where it arrived at about 2 a.m. Monday and left people in the care of three churches, according to the office of New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D), which paid $4,000 for the bus to help ease the burden on cities in the southern part of the state.”

Lujan Grisham said at the time that the Trump administration leaves “states like ours in really precarious positions, and we’re showing folks we can lead and problem-solve. We figured out a way to get 55 folks out of Las Cruces and to Denver. We’re going to continue to do everything like that that we can in the short term.”

Under Joe Biden, there were over two million illegal border crossings just in 2022 alone (2,150,639 to be exact), according to a report from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol released this week.

This comes while Lujan Grisham’s campaign attacks GOP governors for doing what she did just a few short years ago. 

“Gov. DeSantis is using this opportunity to distract Americans from the fact that his far-right colleagues are trying to pass a national abortion ban, a position he supports,” Lujan Grisham spokeswoman Maddy Hayden said in a statement Tuesday.

The smell of hypocrisy from Lujan Grisham can’t be overstated, especially since her campaign is now criticizing governors like DeSantis and Greg Abbott (R-TX) when she is the original “deporter” of illegal aliens from her state.

  1. She is hands-down the very worst governor in New Mexico history (and that is saying a lot, folks). If she wins re-election through legal means, then the Land of Enchantment is gonna turn into a cesspool like most of Albuquerque.
    I know what I say: I wrote a book about it.

  2. Thank you Pinonpost for using the correct term “illegal alien”. Main stream media and most politicans keeping calling them “migrants”. Ask western Eurpoeans what thousands of “migrants” (criminals, rapist, terrorists) have done to their countries.
    MLG doesn’t care about NM, but only about keeping up with Newsome. While our state and country is being invaded, MLG is talking abortion while her daughter is on a campaign ad talking about what a great Mom she was.

  3. So MLG was bragging her administration figured out how to send 55 illegals from Las Cruces to Denver approximately 600 miles. But she can’t figure out how to send the National Guard to, hello, guard a 200 mile NM/Mexico border.

  4. She can’t say anything now, she’s in bed with Biden. And we’ll go broke in the short term just taking care of the thousands that end up here. In the long term we’d better learn Spanish because they’ll be the majority. I love NM. But it’s time to find a less Democratic State.

  5. The illegals (mostly single men of military age) are coming from over 100 countries. Leftist want to claim many are Hispanics to try to get sympathy from NM Hispanics who have NM roots extending 100s of years and have nothing in common with drug/human traffickers, murders, and rapists from all over the world and are not Spanish speakers.
