A small town drives out some good business to appease Leftists (the Mayor now plays dumb to avoid accountability for the loss he inflicted on local businesses). They will just move elsewhere and continue building the Wall anyway.

From the article:

"Residents at one of the town’s two grocery stores said they’d heard some of the trailers had been moved near the Columbus-Palomas port of entry, while others were sent further west to Hidalgo County near the Arizona-New Mexico border."

"While the workers won’t be setting up camp in Columbus soon, work on the border wall continues. Border Report observed trucks coming in and out of construction area 25 miles east of Columbus, and new stretches of 30-foot-tall steel bollard fence now no more than 15 miles from the town.

Galveston, Texas-based SLS last year started building the wall just west of the Santa Teresa, New Mexico border crossing, about 62 miles east of Columbus under a federal contract amended earlier this month."

Angel Peña, president of Nuestra Tierra Conservation Project

I never took Spanish, but I'm guessing that "Nuestra Tierra" means "Our Land".

These people are still fighting the Mexican War of 1848.

Yeah. “Our Land” conservation project.

Right. Columbus is Mexican dirt, right?

Just ask Pershing.

officials complained of a heightened risk of COVID-19 spread posed by the influx of dozens of out-of-town workers

Incredible. They're worried about "dozens of out-of-town WORKERS" but they're fine with thousands and thousands of FREE-LOADERS coming across the border.

Columbus NM would make an excellent artillery practice range.

Wasn’t Columbus, NM the site of Pancho Villa’s raid?

Were I the ramrod of this construction crew I would declare Columbus “off-limits” in the present and future. If they don’t want us, we don’t want them. Spend the $ elsewhere.

The trailers were hauled off to undisclosed locations after activists, residents and some public officials complained of a heightened risk of COVID-19 spread posed by the influx of dozens of out-of-town workers into Columbus.

The very same protestors who want illegal aliens, with no medical screening, to enter the country. Makes perfect sense.

No doubt these good citizens would feel safer with MS13 in their neighborhoods than the construction crews.

After that part of the wall is finished.

ICE will have to make a lot of unannounced visits to that town, area and left wing politicians, ranchers and anyone who profits from illegals.

DEA might want to visit the area.

What stupid people. They’ll build the wall and move further down the line. President said the workers are being screened & tested. New Mexicans are dopey.

"Mayor Esequiel Sala"

IMHO, obviously upset over his loss of the drug payoffs he makes from providing a clear route into the U.S.
