Ali Bradleyhttps //www newsnationnow com/us-news/immigration/border-coverage/gap-border-wall-sovereign-land/ven as Arizona tries to find ways to fill in gaps along the border wall in the Yuma sector, there is a mile-long area that remains open because it runs into sovereign tribal land. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order one week ago to use money from the state’s border security fund to use shipping containers to fill five gaps in the wall. However, a gap that has not been filled is one along the Cocopah Indian Tribe’s Reservation. Hundreds of migrants have crossed into the U.S. through this hole. Border Patrol agents said they saw around 600 people go through it on Thursday.The reason this particular gap exists is because of litigation that happened during the administration of former President Donald Trump.Immigration Arizona Lawsdated article) The Guardian-2010Arizona Central2020/03/03 SB 1070 Legacy of Arizonas immigration enforcement law2020/03/03--https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/immigration/2020/03/02/sb-1070-legacy-arizonas-immigration-enforcement-law/4732918002/Mar 3, 2020 · Senate Bill 1070 and the hard-line immigration policies it embodied continue to divide many Arizonans 10 years after Gov.

Donald Trump said Mexico would pay for his border wall. Remember?Instead, the Defense Department has been made by the president to divert $3.6 billion from 127 projects, including $30 million for a project at Arizona’s Fort Huachuca, in order to fund some additional fencing.According to the list of cuts the projects include a school, rifle ranges, cyber operations and much more.In a statement, Sen. Martha McSally said in part, “We need to secure our border and protect our military; we can and should do both. As soon as the emergency was declared, I went to the mat to fight for Arizona projects and succeeded by receiving assurances from the highest levels of the Department of Defense. However, this one project at Ft. Huachuca was already delayed because of ongoing environmental cleanup that is taking longer than expected.”AZ Free News2022/01/13 Most Arizona Sheriffs Support Ducey’s Proposed Federal Border Legislation. by Terri Jo Neff 2022/01/13--https //azfreenews com/tag/coconino-county-sheriff-jim-driscoll/Fox via MSN2022/08/29 Customs and Border Protection officers in Arizona seize thousands of 'rainbow fentanyl' pills over weekend Louis Casiano • https //www msn com/en-us/news/other/customs-and-border-protection-officers-in-arizona-seize-thousands-of-rainbow-fentanyl-pills-over-weekend/ar-AA11fkGzFronteras Desk2021/06/23 Plan To Bring Police To Arizona's Border Is Welcome But Nebulous.

Shelly, a former U.S. Customs Service agent, served as a member of a multi-agency task force called Firestorm that was created to target public corruption in Arizona. The task force was dismantled suddenly in late December 1990. About a month and a half later, Shelly’s boss and the task-force founder, John William Juhasz, was removed from his post as the head of Internal Affairs for the U.S. Customs Service in Arizona and transferred out of state without explanation.Some three years later, in July 1994, Shelly was out of a job—forced, he claims, into involuntary retirement after suffering years of harassment from an abusive boss.The perpetrator of that hostile work environment, Shelly claims, was James “Breck” Ellis—the same person who oversaw the initial Customs investigation that cleared Allan Sperling of any responsibility in the death of Gary Friedli.https //narconews com/Issue33/article952 htmlNations OnlineArizona Mapwww nationsonline org/oneworld/map/USA/arizona_map htmNBC News2014/05/15 Border Insecurity: Arizona Ranchers Frustrated Over Smugglers, CrimeWith Washington unable to agree on comprehensive immigration reform and a heightened border-security plan, safety threats plague rural Arizona.2014/05/15--https //www nbcnews com/news/us-news/border-insecurity-arizona-ranchers-frustrated-over-smugglers-crime-n106711News Nation Now2021/04//29 Arizona Sheriff calls situation at the border a major health concern.
