Brandon Admin Says Arizona Is Trespassing With Border Barrier

It’s rather a problem when the U.S. government owns 42% of the land in the state of Arizona. Also, when the U.S. government, which is required to secure the U.S. borders per the Constitution and duly passed law, won’t

Biden admin accuses Arizona of trespassing by building barrier on US-Mexico border

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey was accused this week by the Biden administration of trespassing as the Republican governor makes efforts to fill gaps along the U.S.-Mexico border with shipping containers.

Ducey announced last week that he would have crews install shipping containers along a section of the border to fill gaps not covered by a wall. The announcement came two weeks after federal officials ordered him to take down containers he had placed in the southwestern part of the state.

The Republican governor then sued and requested the courts allow Arizona to keep 100 shipping containers, double stacked with barbed wire on top, in place near Yuma.

The containers were put in place in August to fill gaps in the border, which Ducey said was pushing back against “the inaction of the Biden administration in stopping migrants from entering the state from Mexico,” according to the Associated Press.

All Ducey wants, and the citizens of Arizona, especially in the border towns want, is blocking a 10 mile section of the border. Brandon, though

But the Biden administration continues to demand Ducey remove the barriers, with claims that the state is trespassing on federal lands.

“The unauthorized placement of those containers constitutes a violation of federal law and is a trespass against the United States,” Jacklynn Gould, regional director for the Bureau of Reclamation’s Lower Colorado Basin said in a letter to Arizona. “That trespass is harming federal lands and resources and impeding Reclamation’s ability to perform its mission.”

Arizona should simply negate the ownership of land granted to the federal government under the Enclave Clause, as the Constitution states that the land belongs to the state. Period. That’s it. They can cede it, but, the states have the power to take it back. The federal government has no Constitutional authority to take state property.

Also, Reclamation is not actually, you know, performing it’s mission

Gould’s department falls under the Department of Interior, and in her letter, she stated a contract was awarded by the Department of Homeland Security to close gaps near Morelos Dam.

But, they aren’t.

“They say this is federal land, and it is, but it would be trespassing supposedly to put these containers on there,” Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls, also a Republican, said in an interview with Fox News. “Well, my contention is that 300,000 people that have come through this year alone, they’ve been trespassing, and I don’t remember seeing a letter going out to anybody to try to stop any of that.”

And, despite all those illegals trespassing, and violating U.S. sovereignty, the Brandon admin will allow them to stay.

    It’s very interesting how the left scream for state’s right when it comes to the several stupid ones trying to legalize marijuana and but are just appalled when the states try to keep illegal immigrants out.

      California has had agriculture check stations at their borders for lots of decades. It’s time for Nevada and Arizona to return the favor and check for other “infestations”.

    The right-wing nutz always get a chubby whenever they hear the word WALL.
    90% of migrants are not sneaking across the border, they are crossing openly and immediately surrendering and asking for asylum.
    Drugs? They come through the border inspection stations, not over any “wall”
    Our economy has 11 million job openings. Inflation would go down if these were filled. Should migrants be allowed/forced to work while awaiting their court dates?
    The Bible clearly states that we treat strangers just the same as citizens.
    Is this not a Christian country?

    • Professor Hale says:

      Are you arguing that the USA should be a Christian nation? Please be precise. Yes or no will do. If you do not believe the USA is and should remain a Christian nation, your opinion about how to be a good Christian nation isn’t important.

        The US of A has long had codified and social Christian privilege. Conservative Christians have been OK with the 1st Amendment as long as everyone understood it referred to Christian sects.

        According to Amendment I:

        Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

        The first two clauses of the First Amendment regard religion! Pretty important stuff. The US could have a majority of one religion, but it could not be a state religion or church. Importantly, the government(s) could not restrict religious practices*. Obviously, our Constitution is not law, but serves as a guidepost for the Supreme Court. That’s why the determination of what is Constitutional can and does change with the political winds. Our nation is always a work in progress!

        *Of course, our Supreme Court HAS made rulings limiting some practices but in general have had a rocky relationship with Amendment One allowing restrictions that serve a compelling government interest. The Supreme Court has not ruled on rattlesnake handling although state courts in KY, TN and AL have allowed bans on grounds of state health and safety. The TN Supreme Court even allowed a ban on the religious drinking of strychnine (a glycine receptor antagonist)!

          Since you are answering for Hairy, as I said, a yes or no will do. Random information on unrelated topics isn’t useful.

    Cut them off from benefits and they’ll “self deport” without a wall. All we need is someone with the political courage to rip the Band-Aid off and get it over with. It would probably have the side benefit of exposing those organizations and individuals that exploit illegals for financial gain.
