New Mexico's Bill Richardson Declares State Of Emergency On the Border
Print Friendly and PDF
New Mexico Democrat moves to the right of Bush [ lots of room there] and declares a state of emergency on the border with Mexico!

Richardson's declaration said law enforcement officials have used all available resources to help with border security. But those efforts haven't alleviated the situation, which he said "constitutes an emergency condition with potentially catastrophic consequences."

"Recent developments have convinced me this action is necessary _ including violence directed at law enforcement, damage to property and livestock, increased evidence of drug smuggling and an increase in the number of undocumented immigrants," he said.

So far, President Bush has not labeled Governor - "I wanna be President too"! - Richardson a "vigilante". "Willing employers" likely headed to the White House for their own emergency meeting with the hired help. El Presidente dusting off "human rights violation speech"...again. Can the SPLC and the ACLU be far behind? More as events develop!
