Biden Administration set a lawsuit asking the court to order Arizona Governor Ducey to stop building the barrier and remove the containers.
The Shipping Container Border Wall
The Administration is suing Arizona Governor Doug Ducey over his construction barrier wall made of double-stacked cargo containers along the U.S. – Mexico — calling for the immediate removal of the wall and requesting payments for damages caused to federal lands and wildlife.
The complaint also claims that the federal government warns Arizona that was “trespassing on federal lands,” but the state ignore their warnings. Ducey argued, in a letter responding to the federal government’s warnings that grounds for the federal government’s decision to file a lawsuit according to the “unfounded” and “inaccurate” assertions.
Ducey Rejected the Order of the Feds
AP reports, Ducey informed federal officials earlier this week that the state will support removing the containers, but pushed the feds to publicly commit to a timeline for permanently filling in remaining gaps in the wall,
He argues that the Biden administration’s failure to protect the border left him with little to no other choice but to take action. His other border initiative includes involving busing migrants to Democratic-led cities.
Yuma in western Arizona is a well-known crossing point location, which was where Ducey’s container well project got started in late summer. Numerous asylum-seekers arrived there every day and frequently found methods to get over the new obstacles. As part of the construction of Trump’s 450-mile (274 km) border wall, the area occupied by containers was left open.
