Containers are no hindrance for migrants on Arizona border
A border wall with Mexico isn’t the issue it was during Donald Trump's presidency but plans for more barriers in Yuma serve as a reminder of obstacles that the federal government always faces: difficulty working on tribal lands and private property.
When the Biden administration announced plans to award a contract this fall to plug gaps in the Yuma border wall, Gov. Doug Ducey said he couldn't wait and last week finished installing 130 double-stacked shipping containers.
So far, they've had no discernible impact. Hundreds of migrants have continued walking through tribal lands before dawn each day.
