To the Honorable Legislators of the state of New Mexico,

Pursuant to the Constitution of the state of New Mexico, Article II Bill of Rights, Section 16;

  • Treason against the state shall consist only in levying war against it, adhering to its enemies, or giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court. To be sure, there’s no colloquial misuse of a legal term:

The term “treason” as defined in this context “enemies,” for example, must be countries against which Congress has formally declared war or otherwise authorized the use of force.

To be sure, there’s no colloquial misuse of a legal term:

The term “enemy”, as defined in this context means;

  • A person who is actively opposed or hostile to someone or something.
  • A hostile nation or its armed forces or citizens.
  • A thing that harms or weakens something else

In conjunction with the governor, New Mexico attorney general Hector Balderas announced a lawsuit against President Trump for using his constitutional duties as granted to him by the National Emergencies Act of 1976, to declare a national emergency for protection of the United States' southern border. By attempting to interfere with the constitutional responsibilities of the President, as set by Congress, Balderas is acting in concert with enemies of the state. 

Therefore, by these reasons, let we the people of the State of New Mexico bear witness and decree that Attorney General Hector Balderas be impeached from office on the grounds of Treason and we affirm this decree by signing of this petition.
