    Arizona ‘Has Had Enough,’ Starts Stacking Shipping Containers in Border Wall Gaps

    By Charlotte Cuthbertson
    August 12, 2022 Updated: August 13, 2022

    Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has ordered 60 double-stacked shipping containers to be placed in border fence gaps near Yuma, the state’s busiest illegal border crossing area.
    The containers will be reinforced with concertina wire at the top, according to the governor, who issued an executive order for the work to begin on Aug. 12.
    “Arizona has had enough,” Ducey, a Republican, said in a news release.
    “We can’t wait any longer. The Biden administration’s lack of urgency on border security is a dereliction of duty. For the last two years, Arizona has made every attempt to work with Washington to address the crisis on our border.”
    Contractors started placing the shipping containers on Aug. 12 and expect to complete the 1,000-foot gap in the border wall on Aug. 14. It’s expected to cost $6 million.
    The stacked shipping containers will reach about 22-feet high and will be linked together and welded shut, Ducey said. The existing border wall constructed during the Trump era is 30-feet high.

    Border Patrol agents in the Yuma Sector have experienced the largest spike in apprehensions along the southern border since President Joe Biden took office.
    During fiscal year 2022, minus three months still to be reported, border agents have arrested more than 162,700 illegal crossers, according to Customs and Border Protection data.
    In fiscal 2021, the total was more than 184,500, while in fiscal 2020 Border Patrol agents apprehended just over 8,700 illegal crossers.

(Charlotte Cuthbertson/The Epoch Times)Yuma Mayor Doug Nicholls declared an emergency in his city on Dec. 9, 2021, due to an overwhelming influx of illegal aliens.
    During that influx, the local 911 dispatch center was tied up for hours with calls from illegal aliens asking for transport, food, and clothing, Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot told The Epoch Times.

    Nicholls said Yuma—which has nearly 100,000 residents—doesn’t have the resources to handle the thousands of people now crossing.
    “The surge of migrants the federal government has allowed to trek over the border has the grave potential to greatly impact and strain our community,” Nicholls said on Aug. 12 in a press release. “Washington must send a clear message that this is not the way to immigrate to our country.”
    Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has repeatedly said the “border is closed.”

    Biden halted all border wall construction the day he took office on Jan. 20, 2021.

    “It shall be the policy of my Administration that no more American taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct a border wall,” Biden’s executive order states.
    Millions of dollars of unfinished border wall materials have lain in the deserts of Arizona since.
    A report by Senate Republicans issued in July 2021 states that the construction stoppage is costing taxpayers $3 million per day.
    The senators who produced the report estimated that the administration has spent between $618 million and $708 million on contractors between Jan. 20, 2021, and July 15, 2021, and will ultimately spend up to $1.2 billion more to exit the border wall projects.
    Yuma County Supervisor Jonathan Lines welcomed the shipping container wall.
    “National security starts with border security. Biden’s border crisis deteriorates daily while the White House is silent,” he said in a press release. “Border communities like Yuma bear the burden of a broken border while narcotics poison our youth, human smuggling rises and mass amounts of migrants wear on our nonprofits.”



    Illegal immigrants walk toward the border fence to wait for Border Patrol after crossing from Mexico into the United States in Yuma, Arizona, on Dec. 10 2021. (Charlotte Cuthbertson/The Epoch Times)Term-limited as governor, Ducey has pledged to support GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake, who will face Democrat Katie Hobbs in on Nov. 8.
    Lake has pledged to declare the border crisis an invasion on day one, should she win.
    Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich issued an opinion on the invasion clause in the Constitution on Feb. 7.
    “The on-the-ground violence and lawlessness at Arizona’s border caused by cartels and gangs is extensive, well-documented, and persistent. It can satisfy the definition of ‘actually invaded’ and ‘invasion’ under the U.S. Constitution,” the Brnovich opinion reads.
    “The federal government is failing to fulfill its duty under Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution to defend the States from invasion. The State Self-Defense Clause exists precisely for situations such as the present, to ensure that States are not left helpless.”
    As commander-in-chief for Arizona, Ducey has the power to “engage in defensive actions within its own territory at or near its border,” according to Brnovich.
    Ducey has stopped short of enacting his power to use the National Guard and militia forces in such a way.

    State Of Arizona Doesn’t Wait For Biden – Starts Filling Gaps In Border Wall

    By Mike LaChance - August 13, 2022
    2.8KSHARES



    Joe Biden is doing nothing to secure the southern border, even though the crisis is still happening there.

    As a result, the state of Arizona has stopped waiting for Biden’s help and is taking matters into their own hands.
    They are going to start filling in gaps in the border wall on their own.
    Townhall reports:
    Arizona Begins Building Border Wall: ‘If the Federal Government Won’t Act, We Will’
    Arizona is taking border security into its own hands since the Biden administration refuses to take responsibility for the crisis is created.

    Gov. Doug Ducey (R-AZ) announced that he issued an executive order directing the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs to fill in the gaps of the Yuma border wall.
    “If the federal government won’t act, we will,” Ducey said in a tweet.
    During a call with reporters, Ducey said the construction of the wall began “six minutes ago” to finish the Trump-era wall that President Joe Biden ordered to halt when he came into office in 2021.

    “Our border communities are being used as the entryway to the United States, overwhelming law enforcement, hospitals, nonprofits and residents. It’s our responsibility to protect our citizens and law enforcement from this unprecedented crisis,” Ducey continued.
    Who can blame Arizona for taking action? Biden isn’t going to do it.

    Arizona Governor Finally Takes Action, Stacks Shipping Containers With Razor Wire On Southern Border Wall To Stop Biden’s Invasion – Border Gap Near Yuma CLOSED

    Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has finally taken a page out of Trump-Endorsed Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake’s border policy, starting with finishing President Trump’s beautiful wall.
    Ducey hasn’t gone as far as Lake, who has vowed to declare an invasion starting on day one in office, but he did issue an Executive Order to barricade the border in Yuma, where there is no wall. There was not even a fence in this area.

    The Biden Regime has effectively abolished Trump-era illegal immigration policies, and the floodgates are open.
    Biden recently ended President Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy, and over 6 million illegals are expected to cross the wide-open border yearly.

    As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, the Democrats are giving amnesty and Social Security Numbers to these criminals instead of arresting and prosecuting them.

    “Arizona has had enough,” said Ducey in a press release.
    Over the weekend, Arizona constructed a new barricade to fill the gaps in Yuma, where the border is empty. We have reported on this completely unrestricted border sector, where the Cartel brutally rapes women on their journey and illegals just walk into our county.



    Ducey’s press release continued, “Construction began Friday morning on the thousand-foot gap in the border wall near Yuma, Arizona. Emergency management contractor Ashbritt is constructing the barriers. The 25-person team includes heavy equipment operators, operation supervisors and a safety manager. The project will be completed over the weekend.”



    Ducey shared photos and video of the completed construction. The metal shipping containers were welded together, standing 22 feet high and weighing 8,800 lbs.

    With Kari Lake, an invasion will be declared, and she will secure the border starting on day one. She responded to this strong move by the Governor on Twitter, saying,
    I am pleased Doug Ducey has taken a key part of my platform to Secure the Border & use the power reserved to each State to protect its people and borders.
    I thank the Legislators who funded it & I will promptly complete my plan when I take office. That is a promise.

    It’s like every single policy of the Biden regime and his handlers is meant to hasten the country’s ruin.

    Last week the US Supreme Court overturned President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy for migrants who claim asylum.
    On Sunday Texas Governor Greg Abbott joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures.

    Governor Abbott warned that Biden’s open border strategy will allow 6 million illegal aliens across the border each year.
    Maria Bartiromo: How do you expect the Supreme Court’s ruling that Biden can end the ‘Remain in Mexico’ ruling to impact border traffic? And what about Title 42, do you think that’s next after a federal judge put a temporary pause on it back in May?

    Texas Governor Abbott: So this is going to be a total disaster… Let me just give you the numbers provided by the Biden administration. They predicted that after the elimination of these policies we should have about 18 thousand people coming across the border illegally, per day. Extrapolate that for an annual basis and you’re going to have over six million people coming across the border a year. To put this in context the largest city in the state is Houston. We will have about one Houston coming across the border every year.

    How much of this can the country take before Democrat policies cause the complete collapse of our civil society?
