Rep. Gallegos blasts Governor for withholding unemployment funds


Eunice, NM – Representative David Gallegos (R-Eunice), member of the House Labor and Veterans Affairs committee, blasted the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions (DWS) for their callous disregard for the thousands of New Mexicans who have been forced to file for unemployment due to Governor Lujan Grisham’s forced economic shutdown. The department recently shared an update on unemployment funds, stating that while they would accept the additional federal assistance of $300 a week from President Donald Trump’s executive order, they would not be willing to put up the $100 a week match to receive the federal assistance, $400 a week in total.
