Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has had 7 years to begin construction of a border wall in Arizona, one of the states hardest hit by unrelenting waves of illegal immigration caused by the Biden regime.
Ducey claims that he began filling in gaps in a border wall in Yuma, Arizona this week because he was frustrated over ‘inaction’ from the Biden administration on immigration.
In 2021 alone, Border Patrol reported over 2 million ‘encounters’ with illegal immigrants.
Biden has slowly eviscerated immigration enforcement at the border and in our interior.
This month, he won a court fight to rescind President Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy that kept hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants in Mexico while their asylum applications were being processed.
Now, after an America First candidate Kari Lake received the Republican nomination for Governor of Arizona, Ducey has finally started construction of the border wall.
The Daily Mail Reports–
Arizona began moving in shipping containers to close a 1,000-foot gap in the border wall near the southern Arizona farming community of Yuma on Friday, with officials saying they were acting to stop migrants after repeated, unfulfilled promises from the Biden administration to block off the area.
‘Arizona has had enough,’ tweeted Doug Ducey, the Republican governor of the state, who is up for re-election in November.
‘We can’t wait any longer. The Biden administration’s lack of urgency on border security is a dereliction of duty.’
Lake took a victory lap after news broke that gaps in the border wall would start being filled.
She said that she was glad that Ducey ‘took a key part of her platform’ to secure the border.
I am pleased @DougDucey 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. pic.twitter.com/NAKajvUP9L
