Predictable: Feds Slow To Fulfill Promise To Replace Ariz. Border Wall

  • As the shipping containers serving as a makeshift wall in the Morelos Dam area of the Yuma sector of the border came down, the mayor of Yuma said that the federal government is off to a slow start replacing them.
  • “There’s some areas that the containers went down and there’s no current plan by the feds to put anything up, but the Morelos Dam area is the area that really was causing a lot of problems in the last couple years, and so that was kind of seen as a priority area,” Mayor Douglas Nicholls told The Center Square Thursday.
  • Former Gov. Doug Ducey ordered the containers to be placed at the border, and he agreed to take them down during the last days of his administration with the understanding the federal government, which sued, would replace them afterward.
