View Full Version : New Mexico Governor on the new Bush plan

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson:

..."My big question as the New Mexico governor is, Of the 6,000, how many are coming to New Mexico? And they couldn't give me an answer on that. It seems this policy is being made on the fly, and that's what's discouraging."


How is it possible that the governor of one of the only four states to have a border with Mexico wasn't told in advance or conferred with in the discussions for this kind of deployment? Bush is President and doesn't need permission from anyone but that he didn't even seriously consult the Governor(s?) of the state(s?) involved is mind boggling.
