Arizona Governor Signs Bill Sending Cash to Build the Border Wall

Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey signed a bill into law that sends hundreds of millions of dollars to build a border wall on the state’s border with Mexico.

The Daily Wire reports:

The legislation directs $335 million in state cash “to construct and maintain a border fence, purchase or install border security technologies, and to pay associated administrative costs,” the governor’s office said.

“The state budget’s border funding contains $209 million in funding for border-related enforcement,” the Associated Press reported. “That includes a new jail in Cochise County and payments for local prosecutors and transportation. It also has $45 million for emergency operations and ‘fusion’ centers and $54 million in cash for local sheriff’s offices.”

Gov. Ducey pointed to Biden’s mishandling of the border during remarks announcing the allocated funds.

“I’ve been outspoken about the impact this crisis has on Arizonans, our communities and migrants,” Ducey said in a letter. “We’ve taken numerous steps to help resolve the chaos, including deploying the Arizona National Guard, signing legislation to address human smuggling and transporting migrants on a voluntary basis to Washington, D.C. Ultimately, however, securing our border is the responsibility of the federal government… With this investment, we are giving our law enforcement professionals another critical resource they need to successfully do their jobs. We are standing up for the rule of law, and we are cementing Arizona’s commitment to securing our state and our entire nation.”

2 million illegals so far in 2022. 46 million people now live here that were never born here. It’s too damn late for a wall. It’s too damn late for this country. Politicians are the scum of the earth – all of them. I hate this damn place and yes, I am a veteran who once drank the kool-aid they were dishing out. It’s all about greed and money, nothing else matters. The United States has not ever been united since we became a two-party system. It was all smoke and mirrors and sleight of hand magic tricks invented by the rich to keep them supplied with money and power. You have no say, and you are doomed to fail. It took me too long to figure it out, but it is right in front of those willing to find the proof. All wars are for the rich as is everything. They never feel the pain. They have always ruled the earth and always will. You do not believe that you are just another damn fool, just like I once was. Do you believe the rich are hurting now since Biden came in, inflation soared, cities burned and chaos reigns? That is their playbook. They want you to think it something else. Your money has shrunk, has theirs? You are feeling the hurt in your families with food prices, gas, medicine and so on. Are they feeling it? No, dammit. They never feel it. I hope you do get it one day, but I doubt you will. It is just repetition of the same, over and over and over again for every generation.

THE CONSTITUTION STATES THAT “THE UNITED STATES SHALL GUARANTEE TO EVERY STATE IN THE UNION A REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT AND SHALL “PROTECT EACH OF THEM AGAINST “INVASION”.
ART IV: SEC 4: IF ALIENS ENTERING INTO A STATE FROM A FORIEGN COUNTRY CONSTITUTE AN “INVASION”, THE FED GOV IS CONSTITUTIONALLY MANDATED BY PROVISION TO INTERVENE AND PROTECT STATES. USE MILITARY OR CONGRESS. CONGRESS CALLS UP THE MILITIA, AKA, THE NATIONAL GUARD.
ART 1, SEC 8, CLAUS 15:
MILITARY AND NATIONAL GUARD ARE ONLY ONES TO HANDLE SUCH A “INVASION”. IMMIGRATION IS NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION.
ART 1, SEC. 10: HAMILTONS ESSAY No. 82.
“STATES HAVE PREEXISTING POWERS” IF CONGRESS FAILS THEN STATES CAN STAND UP THEIR NATIONAL GUARD USING PREEXISTING LAW.

ART 1. SEC. 10, CLAUS 3: ACTUALLY INVADED OR IN SUCH IMMINENT DANGER AS WILL NOT ADMIT DELAY. STATES HAVE CONSTITUTION AUTHORITY TO USE NATIONAL GUARD TO PROTECT THEIR BORDERS IF CONGRESS FAILS.
CONGRESS HAS “NO” AUTHORITY OVER STATES NATIONAL GUARD IN SUCH CASE.
CALIFORNIA ALSO HAS ART 5, SEC. 7

SO NOT ONLY IS CONGRESS FAILING THE NATION. BUT THE DISGRACEFUL MOVE BY JUSTICE ROBERTS TO REMOVE REMAIN IN MEXICO WHICH WILL HEIGHTEN THE CRISIS EVEN MORE THEN IS. JUSTICE ROBERTS LIKE BIDEN/HARRIS AND THEIR ADMIN HAVE BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS. THEY ARE ALL IN BREACH OF OUR CONSTITUTION. SHAMEFUL.
