Arizona authorities have agreed to take down a makeshift wall of shipping containers along the Mexican border, just months after the outgoing governor said the state was “not backing down” on the issue.
According to court documents filed at the US District Court in Phoenix on Wednesday, Republican Gov. Doug Ducey has reached an agreement with the Biden administration to cease installing the containers in the Coronado National Forest.
The agreement also states that Arizona must remove the finished portions of the wall by Jan. 4 without damaging natural resources.
Made out of over 900 containers and running up costs of at least $80 million in taxpayer money [$90k per container!], the wall covers portions of Arizona’s 370-mile Mexican border that were left open by former President Donald Trump’s incomplete border barrier. …
The Biden administration [was] suing Ducey and Arizona, arguing that the wall amounted to trespassing on federal lands.
At least they tried.
Interesting that the Biden regime is so intent on obliterating US borders for practical purposes. Mere neglect is not enough.
