Border Crisis

BACKWARDS BIDEN: Admin Accuses AZ of Trespassing for Filling Border Gaps With Shipping Containers

This is a bad look, Joe.

According to a Fox News report, the Biden Administration is targeting Arizona and its Governor Doug Ducey for closing border wall gaps with shipping containers; they say it’s a “trespass against the United States.”

Ducey’s plan is to cover a 10-mile section of the border near Yuma using more than 2,700 containers, each 60 feet long; he says he’s pushing back against “the inaction of the Biden Administration in stopping migrants from entering the state from Mexico.”

“The unauthorized placement of those containers constitutes a violation of federal law and is a trespass against the United States,” Jacklynn Gould, regional director for the Bureau of Reclamation’s Lower Colorado Basin said in a letter to Arizona. “That trespass is harming federal lands and resources and impeding Reclamation’s ability to perform its mission.”

“They say this is federal land, and it is, but it would be trespassing supposedly to put these containers on there,” Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls, also a Republican, said in an interview with Fox News. “Well, my contention is that 300,000 people that have come through this year alone, they’ve been trespassing, and I don’t remember seeing a letter going out to anybody to try to stop any of that.”

Since the project began in August, 130 shipping containers were stacked within 11 days, allowing the state to fill 3,900 feet of open border, Fox News reports. More than 227,000 migrant encounters were logged at the southern border in September.
