(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – The administration of Arizona’s Republican Governor, Doug Ducey, has started to build on its own a makeshift wall on the US-Mexican border to keep out illegal Third World immigrants.
Arizona’s construction project, which began at the end of last week, uses empty shipping containers and razor wire to plug three gaps in the unfinished border wall, whose construction began under President Donald Trump, Ducey himself announced on Twitter.

“Arizona has had enough. We can’t wait any longer. The Biden administration’s lack of urgency on border security is a dereliction of duty,” tweeted the Governor, who is running for re-election in the upcoming elections in November.
The three border wall gaps have a combined length of about 1,000 feet and are all located in the Yuma sector, one of the two Southern Border sectors on Arizona territory.
Yuma is presently the third “busiest” border sector in terms of the number of intercepted crossings by illegal migrants, after two sectors in Texas – the Rio Grande Valley and Del Rio.
The decision of Arizona’s GOP Governor to go ahead and finish the wall on his state’s territory with makeshift barriers comes after a recent announcement by the Homeland Security Department of the Biden administration that it was going to use federal funding approved during the Trump presidency to close the three Yuma sector gaps.
Back then, Ducey welcomed the announcement even though DHS said it would not stop the influx of illegals into Arizona but keep the migrants from dangerous parts of the border.
However, the DHS didn’t start the promised construction immediately. The Arizona governor clarified in his tweets that the state could no longer wait for the Biden administration to act.
The makeshift completion of the border wall in Arizona is using two “floors” of shipping containers, one stacked on top of the other, welded together, plus four feet of razor wire on top, for a combined total height of 22 feet.
“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,” Governor Doug Ducey wrote on Twitter as he shared a video of the makeshift border war construction.
The construction using the old shipping containers will cost $6 million and be completed in days.
