A New Mexico county has declared a state of emergency amid an influx of migration. Otero County officials unanimously voted in favor of the declaration on Thursday, demanding the governor deploy National Guard troops to the area.

Hundreds of migrants have been transported to shelters in the county, but those shelters are reportedly overflowing and the county’s resources are depleting.

Otero officials are now giving the state a week to respond to their declaration, and plan on suing if they don’t help and provide resources.
