Lip service aside, the White House seems determined to allow as many illegal immigrants as humanely possible to enter the United States under President Biden’s watch, in the apparent belief that the artificial manipulation of voter demographics in America is beneficial to the Democratic Party.
With more than 5 million migrants crossing into the U.S. in under 2 years and the pace increasing year to year, Border Patrol is overwhelmed and many communities along the border are in dire straits — El Paso declared a state of emergency while turning their airport into a shelter to house hundreds of illegal immigrants, and with many more sleeping in the streets, the Democratic mayor said his community was not safe.
In Arizona, outgoing Gov. Doug Ducey opted to build a makeshift border wall using shipping containers to do what Biden refuses to do — protect the border. But even here, the administration sued, arguing that the state was trespassing on federal lands to erect the barrier.
While Ducey vowed the state was “not backing down,” Arizona has reached an agreement to take down a makeshift wall, according to the New York Post.
Arizona says it will take down its border wall made of shipping containers after the U.S. sued last week, arguing the state trespassed on federal land.

“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 newspaper reported. “The agreement also states that Arizona must remove the finished portions of the wall by Jan. 4 without damaging natural resources.”
“For more than a year, the federal government has been touting their effort to resume construction of a permanent border barrier. Finally, after the situation on our border has turned into a full blown crisis, they’ve decided to act,” Ducey spokesperson C.J. Karamargin told the Associated Press. “Better late than never.”
The administration has apparently agreed to resume construction of a permanent structure, with Karamargin saying “final details are still being worked out on how much it will cost and when it will start.
The temporary barriers were being used to help fill 370 miles of Arizona’s border with Mexico that was left open when former President Donald Trump’s border wall project was halted by Biden. It consists of more than 900 containers and has reportedly cost taxpayers at least $80 million.
“Arizona is going to do the job that Joe Biden refuses to do — secure the border in any way we can,” Ducey said in October when Arizona sued the federal government for the right to keep the wall in place. “We’re not backing down.”
Either way, Democrat Gov-elect Katie Hobbs has dismissed the makeshift wall as little more than a “political stunt” and has suggested that she would have it removed.
“It’s not land that’s our land to put things on. That’s one problem,” Hobbs said, according to the Post. “The containers aren’t working. There’s many pictures of people climbing over them.”
Allowing millions of illegal immigrants to walk across our wide-open borders is not sustainable either, nor is the record level of fentanyl flowing into the U.S. And the human invasion that’s already at historic levels is expected to increase as soon as Title 42 ends.
