The Biden admin is suing Arizona because of their makeshift border wall
· Dec 15, 2022 ·

The Biden administration is SO committed to their failure at the southern border that they are now preventing individual states from taking action to protect their cities and communities along the southern border.

Arizona has attempted to use storage containers to build a makeshift border wall since the federal government won't do its job, and the Biden admin is now suing Arizona for their efforts.

The Biden administration on Wednesday sued the state of Arizona over its construction of a makeshift border wall using shipping containers and razor wire in order to prevent the flow of illegal immigrants — with the administration claiming the state is trespassing on federal lands.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court, says that the installation of multi-ton shipping containers, welded shut and topped with razor wire, "damage[s] federal lands, threaten[s] public safety, and impede[s] the ability of federal agencies and officials, including law enforcement personnel, to perform their official duties."

The lawsuit is the latest back-and-forth between Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and the Biden administration over Ducey's decision earlier this year to fill gaps in the border wall with shipping containers. The move was taken in response to the ongoing crisis at the border which saw more than 2.3 million migrant encounters along the border in FY 2022.

So, Republicans do what they can to secure the border, and the Democrats in the White House try to stop it.

If you thought the border disaster was due to incompetence, this shows it isn't. It's purposeful.

The construction consisted of 60 double-stacked shipping containers, welded shut and topped with four feet of razor wire. His office said that it is 22 feet tall and weighs nearly 9,000 lbs.

The metal behemoth has drawn complaints from activists about the impact on the environment, as well as continued humanitarian concerns about walls that stop migrants entering deeper into U.S. territory.

The federal government, via the Bureau of Reclamation has issued warnings to Arizona, claiming that the containers were within the vicinity of the Morelos Dam and also on land that is part of the Cocopah Indian Tribe's West Reservation. It also said that the placement interferes with a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) project to fill the gaps, and calls on Arizona to stop further construction and assist in removing the containers.

Arizona hit back at what it called a "lack of coordination" from federal agencies and said that states like Arizona "cannot rely on the federal government to ensure its security."

Environmentalists and pro-illegal immigrant activists are bullying the Biden admin into stopping Arizona from completing a border wall. Because they do not care about the border invasion.

"Our border communities are overwhelmed by illegal activity as a result of the Biden administration's failure to secure the southern border," Ducey said in a statement. "Arizona is taking action to protest on behalf of our citizens. With this lawsuit, we're pushing back against efforts by federal bureaucrats to reverse the progress we've made."

"The safety and security of Arizona and its citizens must not be ignored. Arizona is going to do the job that Joe Biden refuses to do — secure the border in any way we can. We're not backing down," he said.

But now the administration has pushed back with a lawsuit, continuing its claim that Arizona is trespassing on federal lands, and seeking compensation from the state.

The wide open border IS the Democrats' agenda. Let's hope Ducey continues his efforts on the border before Democrat Katie Hobbs comes in to assist the Biden admin in undoing the progress being made now.
