MLG threatens ‘non-essential’ businesses if they stay open—pot shops, abortions deemed ‘essential’

On Wednesday, Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham threatened citations by New Mexico State Police to businesses if they do not comply with her strict mandate to close if they are deemed “non-essential” due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Lujan Grisham has also reinforced her stay-at-home order, which she says is germane to “aggressively minimiz[ing] person-to-person contact.”

Lujan Grisham even went so far as to give some attitude to a constituent criticizing her relentless emergency texts.

On Facebook, Lujan Grisham wrote, “New Mexico’s emergency public health order WILL be enforced. Non-essential businesses that fail to comply will be cited by the New Mexico State Police.” 

Despite Lujan Grisham’s “aggressive” actions by forcing the closure of businesses, she considers abortion clinics, including late-term abortion facility Southwestern Women’s Options offering to kill babies through 32 weeks (seven months) gestation. Also included in her definition of “essential” businesses are pot dispensaries.

It should be noted that Lujan Grisham received tens of thousands of dollars from the marijuana and abortion industries. As of August 2018, Lujan Grisham received $29,000 from the pot industry, with $11,000 of that originating from former Bernalillo County Sheriff Darren White’s business, “PurLife.”

During the 2018 election, Lujan Grisham received at least $8,000 from abortionist Curtis Boyd and his surrogates of Southwestern Women’s Options abortion clinic, $11,000 from abortion up-to-birth dark money advocacy group EMILY’s List, and at least $3,500 from Planned Parenthood, according to the New Mexico Secretary of State’s Office. Her abortion contributions totaled over $22,5000.

Lujan Grisham has allowed big corporate box stores to remain open, with Walmart giving the Governor $2,500 during the 2018 election cycle and $5,000 in 2019.

As time passes, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s orders are getting stricter and stricter, as small businesses are hanging by a thread. Albuquerque’s “The Cooperage” restaurant is closing its doors for good. 

Lujan Grisham’s leadership style is drastically different than other governors, such as South Dakota’s Gov. Kristi Noem, who is not forcing a mandated stay-at-home order.

  1. It is not the role of government to decide what is essential
    Every job, every business, every employee in the workforce providing for themselves or thier family is essential

  2. Restrictions placed on small businesses are not logical. Grisham is trying to micro manage the state as she did the Health Department under Richardson.
    She should be recalled, or whatever it takes, by the NM Constitution, to remove her from office!

    1. If you could check her out she broke law and part her penalty was she couldn’t hold any public office. Somehow Richardson got her around it.

  3. We have rights, so to say we cannot go out and socialize with more than 4 people is called Marshall Law. And when you see cops pulling up to businesses and citizens with their flashing that is for sure Marshall Law. This is all illegal. This Governor is flexing her mussels and is on a power trip. Her attitude and governing is unacceptable. Act like a leader rather than a communist.

  4. small business are beibg required to close. many cant qualify for federal dollars cause theyre too small. or these large small business who can manuvier through the maze with their lawyers have used $$ up. She is killing NM put limits on customers. also shes keeping some open but not limiting sake of nonessential items ir business cause they also sell food grain etc

  5. For Grisham to leave Abortion clinics and Pot Shops open while closing all Gun Sales is completely and totally illegal in accordance with Home Land Security, the Constitution and President Trump, all three which deemed gun shops as being necessary businesses . Yes, time to terminate her term..

  6. An American Citizen

    Grisham is a mini Hitler. Essential papers to travel rest stay at home. We have sirciom to media based bs while she is inforcing it. Pot dispensaries, starbucks etc stay open while others deemed non essential. Based on her descision like liqour stores etc. . Should have,never had a stay at home order in place. This covid-19 is minor compared to h1n1 during Obama reign and others hell The average flu kills more than this yet our society has become dumb to,fall inline with this. Think people this is how hitler took over the,Jews. Martial law took away righys to buy firearms. Think about it. Navajo nation doing curfew unless you have your papers. The same the,nazis did. She is ruining,new Mexico and everybody is going to allow it because of media. Last but least THINK HARD. ITS LAST DITCH EFFORT TO REMOVE TRUMPH BECAUSE HE CAMT BE RE-ELECTED IN A FAILED ECONOMY AND GRISHAM IS HELPING DESTROY AMERICA AN NOT,MAKONG AMERICA GREAT AGAIN……

  7. She has an agenda or maybe Mr. Soros as an agenda and we should all be afraid! I was really shocked to see all the money she go from the abortion groups ! Guess I had other reasonss like more faith in Steve Pearce!
