PHOENIX — A New Mexico county near El Paso, Texas, declared a state of emergency Thursday over migrants arriving at and being released in the region.

The board of commissioners in Otero County voted unanimously on the declaration, which includes a request for Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, D-N.M., to deploy National Guard troops to the county, which has seen a surge of migrants starting in January.

The article goes on to state the following:

Local officials gave the state one week to take emergency action and said they will consider suing the state if nothing happens in that time.

“Otero County will also consider litigation in regards to the State of New Mexico failing to follow its constitutional duties towards the people of Otero County,” County Commission Chairman Couy Griffin said in the meeting.

The development comes two days after Yuma, Ariz., a city on the international border, became the first city to declare a state of emergency because it lacks the resources to handle the influx of people.
