Arizona Refuses to Comply With Biden Demand to Remove Makeshift Border Wall

Arizona’s Department of Emergency and Military Affairs is refusing a demand by the Biden administration to remove the shipping containers they are using to close gaps in the wall at the southern border.

A letter written to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and signed by Allen Clark, Director of Arizona’s DEMA, states “the containers will remain in place until specific details regarding construction are provided.”

Clark goes on to argue that the residents of Arizona “cannot rely on the federal government to ensure its security.”

“The myriad of federal agencies that claim jurisdiction on the southern border but do nothing to prevent the public nuisance caused by illegal immigration and criminal activity that exploits the open border is quite frustrating to those that live, work and recreate on that border and in our state,” he added.

Arizona Refuses to Remove Shipping Containers

The letter comes in response to a demand by the Biden administration to remove the shipping containers that are predominantly being used to seal up gaps in the border wall near Yuma.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation penned its own letter last week claiming Arizona’s shipping containers are trespassing on its lands and those of the Cocopah Indian Tribe’s West Reservation.

The Bureau indicates contracts have been awarded to close the gaps in question and they ‘anticipate’ awarding more.

As such, they insisted the containers be removed so the project can continue “without unnecessary delay.”

Arizona Has Had Enough

Odd though, isn’t it, that the Biden administration is suddenly concerned about unnecessary delays when the President halted construction of the border wall on his first day in office?

Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order to seal up gaps in the border wall in August.

Meaning the White House had no less than 18 months to get those contracts awarded and pushed out to start construction.

The shipping containers stand 22 feet high, are welded together, and feature an additional four feet of razor wiring added to the top.

Ducey’s reasoning behind installing the containers includes the Biden administration’s “lack of urgency on border security,” which he labeled a “dereliction of duty.”

“Arizona has had enough,” he said. “We can’t wait any longer.”

The Political Insider reported in July that the Biden administration had authorized closing four major gaps in the construction of the border wall near Yuma, Arizona.

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy confronted the White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, at the time regarding news that the administration would be finishing a wall she once called “racist.”

Now they want Arizona to tear down what they’ve constructed just so contractors can come in and do the job that President Biden halted in the first place.

A shining example of government at its most efficient.

  • Just clarify that Arizona, a State that has an International Border, is a "Sanctuary State for American Citizens". 'Nuff said.

  • I have never seen a president so committed to the destruction of America: open borders, war on American energy while begging for foreign energy, 40 year high inflation, recession, ordering all companies with 100 employees to fire all employees refusing an experimental vaccine, financial aid/loans to black farmers and restaurant owners but not white ones, oil policies tanking the stock market, denying biology and requiring delusion with sex identification, and calling all Americans who voted for his political opponent in 2020 "a threat to this country."

    • This is all planned and intensional. The Dums want to destroy this country, force everyone into poverty and institute full scale Marxism. Joe Biden is just a puppet. Everyone who loves this country needs to vote, because they will cheat again.

    • Let's hope we never do again, this country won't survive much more of their anti Americanism, self promoting, Power & Greed policies.

    • He is bought and paid for by China, so he is doing their bidding to make America the CCP State of Amerika.


  • So funny watching libs twist themselves into knots trying to evade or deny what they've said previously.
