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

Fact checked

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. 

They plan to complete the job within days, and the containers will be topped with four feet of razor wire, said Katie Ratlief, deputy chief of staff for the Republican governor, Doug Ducey.

The state plans to fill three gaps in the border wall constructed during former President Donald Trump’s tenure in the coming weeks, totaling 3,000 feet.

‘The federal government has committed to doing this, but we cannot wait for their action,’ Ratlief said.

John Mennell, a spokesman for Customs and Border Protection, said the agency had just learned of Arizona’s action and ‘is not prepared to comment at this time.’

The move is the latest pushback by a Republican-led border state to what they contend is inaction by Joe Biden on immigration. 

It was immediately prompted by the announcement of the end of the ‘Remain in Mexico’ program that was announced this week, Ducey’s top lawyer, Annie Foster said. 

That program required asylum-seekers to return to Mexico and await a court date, although thousands of migrants who made it into the country were not returned.

Arizona has been sending two to three buses of asylum seekers from Yuma to Washington over the last three months to make a political statement as the number of arriving migrants overwhelmed local resources.

  1. Daily motion skyfox anne heche crash 35.05 mins she is ALIVE at about 20mins but her feet and lower legs are crushed and she is in pain.But she died yesterday.

    • It’s very strange. She flew down that street, crossed the busy dual lane carriageway and somehow didn’t, they are saying, hit the concrete base of the house, but somehow went up over that about 2 foot of concrete and smashed through the walls into the living room and then burst into flames. She didn’t try to stop at all, and had already hit another vehicle and kept going and some sources say she had hit another building also and backed out of that and then carried on.

      • She clipped the right front bumper at a storage garage nothing really on a short TMZ clip.the POPpy rattySS had her all day long on PODcsater sites.Daily motion SKYFOX has 35.05 mins of the crash into 1766 walgrove and at about 20 mins she sets up on the roller gerney and grabs at her crushed feet&leggs.She was crushed behind the firewall of the mini copper and the steering wheel stuck and legs and feet crushed just like tiger woods But after they removed her she was talking with the fireman and VERY MUCH ALIVE.Skull damages and compaction STROKE maybe or just lack of air in the fire and from the pressure of entrapment.

      • She went in on top of the floor boards as the house at 1766 walgrove was built in 1952 and just sits on top of limestone blocks and a outer wall of lime stone blocks.Anyway thats why she did`nt totally burn up the gas dripped somewhat under those old floor boards.She was coked up and on pain pills they are saying now and I think she got her dope at those storage garages from some of those HOOD ratts podcasting her.The police can hack your car and do to those going to high crime zones.I have had my system stabilizer module hacked house hunting and pulled over by police.I have witnessed a few hacked excellerator modules (APM) and both her and josh edwards died in just the same way most likely hacked (EBCM) and hacked (APM) from a over hack of the car brain and computer (PCM).She seemed to be trying to brake but was not able to- hacked and could`nt control the car and she was just keeping it on the road.REMOTE PUSH BUTTON MURDER has been used for ages and I have been hit by a car with a hacked (APM) and know josh edwards was hacked and crashed just like anne heche both to death into a dead end on a long no cross streets road.They were both my kids hidden as a son of howard hughes GENICIDE is was easy as pushing a button and remotely run planes automatically and remote controlled trains have been around since the 1970`s and I know those whom remote them and have for years and years very tuff to stop them,But anne was almost old and josh was`nt so they were hidden from me and may not of even known as that is waht the mormons did back than but I was raped and bred endlessly

  2. Mexico has to be held accountable die not containing its criminals and its illegals and fir being so revolting mlions want to. Escape the evil of that corript nation along with the criminals and illegals it allows to pass through. It needs to pay reparations in the billions or if I were the government the mitary would be ordered to go in and collect the reparations and sort out the government’s too.

    • It starts way earlier than Mexico. The FIRST country that “migrants” enter after leaving their “home” country is the one in which they are LEGALLY OBLIGATED to seek asylum. ESPECIALLY if the people in that “first country they enter” speaks the same language as the “migrant’s” native language.

  3. Well, that’ll slow ’em down some. Nice job.

    Eventually, though, the drug cartels will cut through from their side and use the containers as storage and distribution points.
    They’re VERY resourceful.
