New Mexico Governor Michelle Grisham (D) issued a 5-person limit on Thanksgiving gatherings in her state over COVID-19 but admitted that authorities “can’t enforce” such a policy.
“You’re asking people in New Mexico to limit their gatherings to five. How do you begin to enforce that?” asked PBS “NewsHour” correspondent Amna Nawaz on Friday.
“So, you ask one of the most important questions. You can’t enforce that,” Grisham confessed.
“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.”
