Local residents took part in a vehicle parade Saturday in Roswell, amplifying what organizers describe as concerns about the integrity of the 2020 presidential election.

Billed as the “Trump Integrity Train,” the caravan of motorcycles, pickup trucks and other vehicles outfitted with Trump flags and messages of support for the 45th president made its way from the Eastern New Mexico State Fairgrounds north to the parking lot of the Roswell Mall.

Participants gathered at the Fairgrounds at 1 p.m. and were escorted along the route by a Chaves County Sheriff’s deputy.

Cristina Arnold, one of several organizers of the caravan, said Saturday the parade is meant to show that many people have “deep-rooted concerns” about the election.

“The goal is just to spread the message that we have questions about the integrity of the 2020 election cycle,” she said.

Arnold added that the Roswell parade coincided with at least three others Saturday in New Mexico: one in Albuquerque, one that went throughout Lincoln County and one in Alamogordo.

Since Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden was projected winner of the 2020 presidential election by media outlets and election officials, Trump has repeatedly made unproven claims of voter fraud in the election.

When reached for comment by the Roswell Daily Record Monday, Alex Curtas, communications director for the New Mexico Secretary of State, said the state has not received any credible reports of voting irregularities and there has been no evidence presented of voter fraud in New Mexico or anywhere else in the nation.

Curtas also referenced a Nov. 12 joint statement issued by multiple election groups and agencies throughout the nation, which called the Nov. 3 election “the most secure in American history.”
