The commission approved the resolution Tuesday night.

Commissioners say migrants in other parts of southern New Mexico including Las Cruces and Deming are straining the resources.

According to the Las Cruces Sun News, the resolution also calls on President Trump to close the U.S. - Mexico border to immigration.
