“The safety and security of Arizona and its citizens must not be ignored. Arizona is going to do the job that Joe Biden refuses to do — secure the border in any way we can. We’re not backing down,” Ducey said at the time, according to Fox News.

The Biden Administration is taking Arizona to court over the makeshift border wall Republican Gov. Doug Ducey has constructed in the wake of historic levels of illegal immigration on the southern border.
The suit filed Wednesday pertains to the placement of shipping containers along the border that the Biden Administration argues trespasses on federal lands, according to the Associated Press.
“Not only has Arizona refused to halt its trespasses and remove the shipping containers from federal lands, but it has indicated that it will continue to trespass on federal lands and install additional shipping containers. As a result, the United States brings this action to obtain appropriate relief for Arizona’s unlawful continuing trespasses and invasions of the United States’ paramount sovereign property rights and interests under the U.S. Constitution,” the lawsuit claimed according to Fox News.
