Arizona's shipping container wall on border is coming down
Former Republican Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s border barrier of shipping containers has been largely dismantled just in time for a new Democratic administration, costing tens of millions of dollars over just a few months while they were set up and taken down again.
Ducey had said the containers placed at openings along the border near the western community of Yuma and across a grasslands valley in eastern Arizona’s Cochise County were a temporary measure until the Biden administration carried out planned construction.
Gov. Katie Hobbs, who was sworn in this week, was among Democrats who called it a political stunt.
