(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Arizona recently passed a law committing the state to spending hundreds of millions of dollars to secure the country with a border wall, since President Joe Biden seems determined to allow his failing immigration policies to create havoc.
The new law allocates more than $300 million in funds to protecting residents from illegal immigration and the associated drug influx, reported the Washington Times.
In addition to funding a border wall, the spending will also cover a new jail in Cochise County and payments for local prosecutors and transportation. It also has $45 million for emergency operations and ‘fusion’ centers and $54 million in cash for local sheriff’s offices.
Unfortunately for the state, much of the border is on federal land, which limits how much Arizona can do to defend itself when Washington refuses.
