Ducey issues order to fill gap in southern border wall with shipping containers

Governor Doug Ducey has issued an executive order to fill a thousand-foot gap in the U.S.-Mexico border wall near Yuma.

It directs the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs to place 60 double stacked shipping containers reaching more than 20 feet in height topped with concertina wire in between panels of the border wall built during the Trump administration.

Construction began Friday morning.

The project will cost the state $6 million. Ducey blasted what he called the Biden administrationís lack of urgency on border security and says large amounts of drugs and migrants enter the U.S. through the border wall gap.

1. Isn't a SHORTAGE of shipping containers one of the reasons for supply chain probems ?? nt

Diverting them for some stupid barrier will just make things worse.

2. I second the above. Create a supply chain shortage, and then blame Joe Biden. A double-win for Doody

$6 million???
60 trailers.
1,000 ft.

Would Trump's fence cost that much?

A graft inspired EO?

4. Seemingly never addressed issues with these builds

What does a block such as this do to water runoff during and after a rain?

And what about the animals who live in this area? Does it prevent the animal from reaching its normal water or food supply? How about breeding partners?

5. The important question is - Why did Trump leave gaps in the wall?

Thatís like trying to fill a bucket with a big hole in the bottom.
