On Saturday, pro-Trump patriots from every corner of the state held massive rallies and parades across New Mexico, from the state Capitol in Santa Fe, to Rio Rancho, Corrales, Carlsbad, Roswell, and Las Cruces.
Hundreds came out to protest Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s health orders in front of the Capitol, on Saturday, with patriots holding American and New Mexican flags, wearing Trump gear, and signs supporting the reopening of New Mexico.
According to KOB 4’s Patrick Hayes, around 1,000 people showed up for the “Protest for Freedom,” which had high-profile guests, such as Pastor Steve Smotherman of Albuquerque’s Legacy Church, former New Mexico representative and Republican nominee for Congress in District 2 and Yvette Herrell.
“The Governor should fear the people. We should never fear our government. And we the people from every walk of life — Democrat, Republican, Independent — that has gone out the door. It’s about righteousness and unrighteousness. It’s about right and wrong, it’s about evil and good,” said Smotherman, speaking of Lujan Grisham’s strict COVID-19 lockdown.
Herrell said, “I’ve been saying this all along. This is not about Yvette Herrell. This is about one nation under God. We are fighting for our nation!”
On Friday, Herrell was at a “Tractors for Trump” ride in Roswell, where folks came together, mainly from the agricultural community, to support President Trump and Republicans in the state.
On Saturday, patriots 750 vehicles full of Trump supporters traveled from Carlsbad to Roswell to support President Trump.
There was also a large caravan of pro-Trump patriots driving through Corrales on Saturday, holding Trump flags and signs in support of the President’s re-election. Similar events also took place in Las Cruces.
On Sunday, there is another scheduled parade, this time in Albuquerque on Tramway and Central, which is expected to garner many patriots ready to flip New Mexico red in November.
