Arizona Builds Border Wall With Shipping Containers and Barbed Wire, Will Be Completed Next Week

Arizona has begun building a 1,000-foot barrier of shipping containers topped with four feet of barbed wire along the Yuma border, citing repeated, unfulfilled promises from the Biden administration to block off the area.

Arizona has had enough,‘ tweeted Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, who issued an executive order directing the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs to immediately fill the gaps in the Yuma border wall. ‘We can’t wait any longer. The Biden administration’s lack of urgency on border security is a dereliction of duty.’

The Yuma sector of the border, 126 miles long, has seen a staggering 300 percent increase this year in illegals arrested by Customs and Border Protection agents, compared to the same time frame in 2021.

The spike in illegal encounters in Yuma is the highest recorded by any of the nine sectors: two in California, two in Arizona, one in New Mexico and Texas, and four solely in Texas.

Yuma has seen the third highest total number of ‘encounters’ this year – beaten only by Del Rio and the Rio Grande sectors, both in Texas. 

Ducey said he had tried to convince the White House to do more to help Arizona, but has been left convinced that the Biden administration has no interest in stemming the flow of illegals.

For the last two years, Arizona has made every attempt to work with Washington to address the crisis on our border,’ he continued.

Time and time again we’ve stepped in to clean up their mess. 

Arizonans can’t wait any longer for the federal government to deliver on their delayed promises.’

Daily Mail report: The move by Arizona comes without explicit permission on federal land, with state contractors starting to move in 60-foot-long shipping containers, stacking two of the 9-foot-tall containers on top of each other early Friday.
