New Mexico governor Michelle Lujan Grisham is very much opposed to President Donald Trump’s border wall. And despite being the governor of a border state, has taken a far-left approach to illegal immigration, petitioning against the White House’s plan to stiffen control at the United States’ southern border.

Grisham decided, early on, to offer her own “rebuttal” to Trump’s State of the Union speech, specifically addressing Trump’s call for greater border security, and an extended border wall between the United States and Mexico that would stretch across the lower border of her state.

It was a tough call give then competitors — Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-CA) awkward pre-buttal, former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams’s speech in front of the motionless mannequins from Pink Floyd’s “The Wall,” and Bernie Sanders’ stuttering Facebook live — but Grisham may have released the most bizarre “rebuttal” of the night.

That’s right. Grisham is certainly “breaking down walls,” but less in a policy sense and more in a “Kool Aid man” sense. Her “rebuttal” ad is a solid thirty seconds of Grisham literally running through walls.

On Wednesday, Grisham took a more concrete approach the President’s plan, signaling that she no longer intends to allow New Mexico’s National Guard troops to protect the southern border, and that she will recall the National Guard immediately.

NPR reports that “Grisham has ordered the majority of National Guard troops deployed at her state’s Southern border to withdraw, condemning what she called a ‘charade of border fear-mongering’ by President Trump, who has warned of an immigration emergency in the region.”

Grisham’s order not only covers troops from her own state, but any troops from National Guard companies in other states who were deployed to serve at the New Mexico border, including troops from “Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Wisconsin.”

“I reject the federal contention that there exists an overwhelming national security crisis at the Southern border,” Grisham said.

WATCH:

President Donald Trump noted in his State of the Union speech last night that he believes immigration issues at the border do constitute a national emergency, and that he will declare one if Democrats do not approve around $5 billion in border wall funding when they reconvene with Congressional Republicans to discuss a long-term Federal budget.

On Wednesday, the U.S. government also announced that the number of U.S. military personnel at the border would increase by several hundred.

    This is just so bizarre. Who in the world are we electing as government officials? It’s sickening.

      I was just thinking the exact same thing! I thought some of the people we have in Washington were nuts but I guess they’re spread out all over the whole country. I don’t know how these people get elected. They must promise their benefactors all kinds of things to reach positions that they hold.

    Michelle, are you that stupid, you hate Trump so bad, you are not going to keep your state safe. New Mexico your governor could care less about you.

    Any New Mexico victims of illegal aliens should sue her and the state for allowing her to do this. She’s ridiculous and putting her own citizens at risk.

    What a fake & stupid commercial for her views. She is an idiot if she cannot see the dangers that will affect not just the citizens of her state, but people all over the United States. Just back a plan that uses strong barriers & every other method to stop illegal aliens from entering our country. Who does not understand that as soon as they cross our border they have committed a crime?

    There obviously a test for mental instability that you must pass to be elected governor of New Mexico. This clearly ranks as the top 10 stupidest thing I ever seen. I feel sorry for the citizen of New Mexico as the state as they have elected an idiot for governor….

    This “Governor” is a sicko and deserves a recall. Stupid ass

    So glad….that I no longer reside in New Mexico, and this Governor is one reason this!!

    FIRST,
    I dislike throwing cold water on anyone’s fantasy’s…but, the State Governor (of any State) ….has NOT the power to pull the Military off of the Border. Our U.S. Military…rightly takes orders ONLY from the President, and then through the leader of their Military Branch.

    SECOND,
    From where I sit……….this (um…) Governor, isn’t even qualified to be a NM Dog Catcher!!
    The reason being that, a Dog Catcher has to care about either catching or protecting the local resident dogs. So far, she very plainly does NOT care anything about …EXCEPT…her liberal, open-border, NWO goals. Period. ;(

    And how exactly can she recall any troops if they are ordered there by the president? Put New Mexico under martial law and arrest her ass for disobeying an executive order. So sick and tired of these douche-bag nobody politicians who think they can just ignore the president and do what ever the hell they want. Drop the hammer on this bitch!

    She should go camping at the border for a couple of weeks. Just her & her girlfriend.

    This was the worst behavior I’ve ever seen from a governor. She has no realization of what her actions can do to our country. Running through walls – that is insane. However, New Mexico is probably the last on the list of states the illegal aliens want to head to.

    OK, go ahead and let everyone go through New Mexico. Build a wall around New Mexico and the rest of the country. Let New Mexico handle all the illegals. And if any illegal come from New Mexico to another state and commits a crime, then its on New Mexico to pay the damages.

    Illegal aliens must be her biggest voting block. It would have been hilarious if they had straightened that last wall. Ha ha

      Not only are the illegals a large number of support but the native Americans as well. The politicians promises them the moon and mostly deliver through the senators and congressmen and women in Washington. The deals are struck in secret and then executed in DC.

    is there no limit to their hypocrisy? Grisham lives behind a nine foot wall (spears on top) with guards at each corner in a gated complex.

    It came out those in government on the border of Arizona, have been being paid by the Cartels, I think this knot head should be looked into if she is being paid, sounds like it.

    Last I checked Trump is the one that has authority over our military. If he commands troops to be there They will be there. If this Governer orders the troops to withdraw and they do they would all be guilty of starting a coup against the President.

    Oh how i wish some worker had put a 2×4 brace across that wall at about her fore head height…lol,lol,lol… that would have been pure gold! The funniest thing on TV since All in The Family!

    I am so disgusted by the behavior of the governor of my state (NM). This is an absolutely ridiculous ad. I am appalled at her thinking or lack of it. She has already done much damage to our state and continues to do so. Embarrassed and ashamed of the new governor of NM.

    Seriously, I just watched the video. That Governor, her acting prowess, and the entire premise of the video are a steaming pile of crap… Good luck clear minded residents of New Mexico.

    One she is not Commander and Chief that would be President Trump and second was she not committing a crime when she illegally interned that county therefore, she was breaking the law of that country.

    Now, MAYBE! People will start to realize how radical the Democrats are getting! For God’s sake, we need a wall to stop the human trafficking that people are suffering from every day the wall isn’t in place! The drug cartels are using the unobstructed border to bring in drugs and poison our people. This should be a “no-brainer”! Build the wall at a fraction of the cost that Americans are paying every year on welfare and medical cost to the illegal immigrants already here! We spend $140,000,000.00 (One hundred and forty billion) every year to support the illegal immigrants EVERY YEAR! If we spent 15 to 20 billion on a wall we are saving over 100 billion every year! I don’t care if it’s 30 billion to build the wall, it’s still a bargain! BUILD the wall!

    Well, that’s fine and dandy.
    Trump can build the wall right up to the NM state line and stop. Guess where the next 200,000 illegals will show up?
