New Mexico Sees '2-4 Hour Lines' Outside Grocery Stores After Abrupt Lockdown

Yikes! New Mexico is seeing lines outside of essential retailers that are lasting up to four hours after Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham ordered an "abrupt" lockdown. She ordered the forced closing of "nonessential" businesses and created the "modern breadlines" outside of grocery stores.

Former GOP Senate candidate Elisa Martinez appeared on Breitbart News Saturday to explain what is happening:

Martinez, a former U.S. Senate candidate and Trump campaign surrogate, said that there has been a lot of downward pressure on the economy and people of New Mexico due to “ridiculous mandates” pushed by the governor, imposing some of the “strictest lockdowns” in the country. Martinez discussed the governor’s “abrupt” November 13 announcement, which put residents under another lockdown, closing businesses deemed nonessential.


The lockdown, which went into effect November 16, created a “huge rush to all of the stores,” which Martinez said was “very counterintuitive if the idea is to stop the in-person contact.”

The governor ultimately capped capacity in retail stores to 75 people, regardless of size.

“So now we’re experiencing 2-4 hour lines outside in the cold — some areas of the state it’s snowing, raining,” Martinez said. “I had an elderly woman contact me. She was waiting in line for two hours to get their meds — to get their, you know, essential medicine. So it’s making a public health emergency worse in my opinion for the people of New Mexico, especially leading up to Thanksgiving."

The issues are worse though, “by the fact that she also declared that if you have four rapid response coronavirus tests that came back in one of these essential businesses, that the whole business, the whole store, had to shut down.”

Lujan Grisham’s order ultimately put pressure on mom and pop stores, she continued, explaining that Democrat governors are “enriching corporate empires like Amazon and Walmart.” All the while, Hollywood productions are allowed to take place in the state.

“We have video of an actual production crew at work here in the state that took place after the lockdown orders. And my understanding is that there’s a special agreement that the film industry gets to operate outside of the public health order based on their own agreement with unions. It’s really a slap in the face to the people of New Mexico who are truly struggling, who are waiting outside in these lines,” she said.
