Arizona Gov. Ducey Approves Record $500 Million+ On Border Security Protection For State

JTN:

Arizona GOP Gov. Doug Ducey has signed legislation that will ensure over $550 million in spending to protect his state from problems related to immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border, which he blames on the Biden administration.

“Inaction by President Joe Biden has led to the worst border crisis in over 20 years,” Ducey said in a letter Thursday to Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs. “With this investment, we are giving our law enforcement professionals another critical resource they need to successfully do their jobs.”

The legislation combined with investments from the coming fiscal year’s budget dedicates $564 million toward the border security and will pay for such cost as a physical barrier, public safety staffing shortages and upgrading law enforcement equipment to target criminal activity, according to the letter. 

Ducey also said in the letter the amount the state is spending on the effort was a “record amount.” 

State GOP Rep. John Kavanagh, who sponsored the legislation, says record number of illegal border-crossers has overwhelmed law enforcement and Border Patrol. MORE

  1. Biden is just putting his BS border policy costs off on other states taxpayers. BS Biden.

  2. The best way Arizona border agents can do their jobs is to get a bunch of that ammo from the IRS.

  3. Border states should declare that the invasion by illegal invasions is a state of war and call on citizens to fight it off. If the UN complains, then screw ’em. If Biden complains and send the Statsi, er, FBI, then they are treasonous and should be considered the same as the people invading.

  4. Thanks Doug. Nice of you to let the first couple mil through though. You and the twatwaffle in TX are birds of a feather.

    Kari Lake says on Day 1 of her administration the AZ National Guard will be deployed to the border. Why don’t you try that one, see how it fits?

  5. Asshole Democrats won’t enforce immigration law, or any other laws they find inconvenient.
