The Chairman of the Otero County Commission, Couy Griffin, refuses to have illegal aliens released into his county.
Griffin says that Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has failed to deploy National Guard troops in the face of the growing crisis at the border.
As a result, Griffin is blocking illegals from entering Otero County due to low resources.
Griffin told Fox News that “We’ve had no response from our governor.”
This was in reference to the state of emergency that Griffin and Otero County board members declared on April 18.
Former Republican Governor Susana Martinez highlighted how the souther region of New Mexico has no more space to take thousands of so-called migrants being released from federal custody.
Martinez claimed, “There is no more capacity any more they’re giving to the local community — Las Cruces, Otero county giving it to Yuma, here in El Paso. At one point, they have to bus them to other locations that can absorb them. It just is impossible.”
New Mexico, just like its Southern Border counterpart in McAllen, Texas is simply getting overwhelmed by mass migration floods.
Because of the lack of proper response from both state and federal governments, militia groups like the United Constitutional Patriots have stepped up to the plate to provide much-needed security at the border.
However, BLP reported on the massive roadblock they encountered when GoFundMe and PayPal deplatformed the organization from their payments processors. Now, it’s up to county officials like Couy Griffin to pick up the slack.
With how out of control this illegal migration wave is getting, voters have every reason to be worried.
The social effects taking place in political blocs like the European Union and the increasing number of migrants flooding into the U.S. along the southern border make immigration the most important issue of the 2020 elections.
BLP covered GOP voter’s overwhelming support for tackling immigration in the upcoming Presidential race.
Should Trump campaign hard on the issue, it’s likely he will win a second term in office.
Fox News Ratings Crater, Trailing CNN and MSNBC for First Time in 21 Years
A brutal collapse over the past two-and-a-half months.
Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.
This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.
Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.
MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.
This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:
- The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
- Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
- Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
- An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
- A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
- Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)
Fox News has recently announced lineup changes as well. This is standard practice in the cable news industry and may not have much to do with their suffering ratings, though there’s a likely possibility that it does. Fox will be adding an hour-long opinion show in place of Martha MacCallum’s news show “The Story,” which had fallen behind both CNN and MSNBC’s 7pm timeslots after a stretch of being “comfortably ahead in ratings.” The network will also shuffle some of their daytime lineup.
As Joe Biden works through his first 100 days as president, it will be interesting to see how Fox News continues to perform, not only in comparison with CNN and MSNBC, but also with OANN and Newsmax.
