Governor Admits It’s Impossible to Enforce Thanksgiving COVID Limits

Well, there you have it.

As Americans prepare to gather for the Thanksgiving holiday, there are several local and national authorities who are pushing for the nation to reconsider the traditional Turkey Day routine.

That’s due to the still-ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which itself has prompted a strange political fight among the people of the United States.  On the right side of the political spectrum, the virus has been taken a bit less seriously, with some even going as far as to insinuate that the media is intentionally overplaying COVID-19 in order to make President Trump look bad.

When states and towns began attempting to regulate the size of our Thanksgiving day meals in order to prevent the further spread of the virus, that’s when Americans grew downright annoyed.

Now, the Governor of New Mexico, Lujan Grisham, is lashing out as well, stating unequivocally that the possibility of enforcing these new rules is nil.

From a recent appearance on PBS:

“NewsHour” Senior National Correspondent Amna Nawaz asked, “You’re asking people in New Mexico to limit their gatherings to five. How do you begin to enforce that?”

Grisham responded, “So, you ask one of the most important questions. You can’t enforce that. There is no way, anywhere in the country, we’re going to be able to say, look, you brought another household together. There [were] ten of you having Thanksgiving dinner. But we are hopeful that people will really take heed.”

Hoping that people will follow the law is the same sort of logic that got Chicago in trouble when they banned handguns in the 1980’s, and the only folks left breaking the law were lawless to begin with.

Without the ability to enforce these regulations, all the government is doing is reserving the right to say “I told you so” if something unfortunate happens to you, and that’s not exactly the sort of thing Americans want their government to be spending resources on.
