    Governor Doug Ducey (R-AZ) has refused to comply to a demand by the Biden administration to remove shipping containers that are being used to block a portion of the state's border with Mexico.

    The Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs sent a letter to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation on Tuesday to inform the administration that the state will not remove the containers until a permanent barrier is constructed.

    "Arizonans cannot - and will not - wait for federal bureaucrats to do their job and secure the border. We're taking action now," Ducey tweeted Wednesday.

    The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation claimed in a letter last week that Arizona was violating federal law by placing the containers on federal land and on the land of Cocopah Indian Tribe's West Reservation, the Associated Press reported Monday.

    "The unauthorized placement of those containers constitutes a violation of federal law and is a trespass against the United States," the letter read. "That trespass is harming federal lands and resources and impeding Reclamation's ability to perform its mission."

    A spokesman for Ducey told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday that the position presented by the Biden administration is not one the state would consider.

    "The suggestion by any federal bureaucracy, that we take action to make the border easier to cross, is completely unacceptable. Gov. Ducey takes the responsibility to protect Arizona very seriously - that's why we put up these containers," Ducey's communications director, C.J. Karamargin, said in a call with the outlet. "What they're suggesting, that we take them down and make Arizona less safe, is a nonstarter."

    Ducey posted pictures of the gap in the border wall before and after the containers were placed.

    The governor signed an executive order in August that authorized the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs to begin emergency construction to fill in a 1,000-foot-long gap in the border wall in the Yuma sector. The project was completed just days later.

    The order also occurred just days after the Biden administration lifted the "Remain in Mexico" policy.

    "Arizona has had enough," Ducey said in an August 12 statement. "We can't wait any longer. The Biden administration's lack of urgency on border security is a dereliction of duty. For the last two years, Arizona has made every attempt to work with Washington to address the crisis on our border. Time and time again we've stepped in to clean up their mess. Arizonans can't wait any longer for the federal government to deliver on their delayed promises."

    President Joe Biden signed an executive order on his first day in office that stopped the construction of the border wall authorized by former President Donald Trump. A growing border crisis has emerged since that time, with more than 2.4 million CBP enforcement actions during the 2022 fiscal year that ended September 30.

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
