Well, that is certainly one way to drive your point home.
However, that is not all that Grisham has done to demonstrate her displeasure with Trump creating a fake crisis at the border.

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has ordered the majority of National Guard troops deployed at her state’s Southern border to withdraw, condemning what she called a “charade of border fear-mongering” by President Trump, who has warned of an immigration emergency in the region.
“I reject the federal contention that there exists an overwhelming national security crisis at the Southern border,” Lujan Grisham said, adding that the area has “some of the safest communities in the country.”
The governor’s order covers most of New Mexico’s deployed troops, along with Guard members who have traveled from Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Wisconsin. In all, 118 National Guard troops have been deployed in New Mexico, the governor’s office said.
Lujan Grisham ordered the withdrawal just before Trump delivered his State of the Union address, in which he railed against illegal immigration and labeled a group of mainly Central American migrants as “illegal immigrants” — despite the fact that most of them are traveling with legal humanitarian visas.
I am not sure if Grisham has any desire to throw her hat in the ring for the 2020 presidential primaries but she certainly knows how to draw attention if that is her plan.
