The governor declared a state of emergency beginning Saturday, following reports from the FBI that there may be violent protests or even riots at state capitol buildings throughout the United States on or before the inauguration of Joe Biden as president on Jan. 20. Fencing and other security measures have already been beefed up around the Capitol building in Santa Fe.

The warnings spring from ongoing investigations into the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
