Biden admin slams Arizona’s border closure as “trespassing”

Chanel Rion – Chief White House Correspondent
UPDATED 1:25 PM PT – Monday, October 31, 2022

The Biden administration this week accused the State of Arizona of trespassing against the federal government for trying to secure its southern border.

An attack prompted by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey building a makeshift border wall using double stacked shipping containers.

Ducey started building these container walls two weeks ago and was able to cover a 3,900 feet of open border near Yuma using 130 stacked shipping containers in just 11 days. That’s just 23 container lengths short of a full mile. The Biden Administration ordered Ducey to dismantle this stretch of container wall but Ducey doubled down and sued the administration stating the container wall was in reaction to “the inaction of the Biden Administration in stopping migrants from entering the state from Mexico.”

Ducey’s continuation of container wall construction is part of his plan to cover a 10-mile section of border using more than 2,700 double stacked containers – each spanning 60 feet.

To all this, the Biden administration accused Arizona of “trespass against the United States.” Jacklyn Gould, regional director for the Bureau of Reclamation’s Lower Colorado Basin said in a letter to Arizona: “That trespass is harming federal lands and resources and impeding Reclamation’s ability to perform its mission.” 

Gould’s office falls under the office of the Interior and she goes on to claim that the closing of this particular stretch of the Southern border falls under the domain of the Department of Homeland Security which has ongoing contracts pending to close these gaps along the southern border. 

Local officials estimate at least 300,000 migrants have illegally crossed this particular stretch of Arizona border this year alone. A problem the Biden administration seems content to ignore – or is too afraid to offer solutions  which in turn has prompted governors from states like Arizona, Texas, and Florida to take matters into their own hands.

UPDATED 1:00 PM PT – Monday, October 31, 2022

Pennsylvania Republican Senate nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz says the state needs high-paying energy jobs.

During an interview with Breitbart News over the weekend, Oz commented on the matter while slamming his opponent, John Fetterman. Oz claimed that left-wing politicians like Fetterman are mistakenly focusing on increasing the federal minimum wage.   

Oz added that his goal is to help people earn more than just the minimum wage by unleashing energy sector jobs with good benefits and opportunities for pay increases.

The Trump-endorsed candidate said the Keystone State has the opportunity to build a facility in Philadelphia, which would bring tens of thousands of high-quality trade jobs.

Police in India have arrested nine people who they believe to be connected with the Morbi bridge collapse. The nine arrests include ticketing clerks, managerial staff and three security guards who failed to regulate the number of people on the bridge.

Search and rescue efforts continue in India following the pedestrian bridge collapse which left at least 140 people dead. Crews continue to comb the waters below the bridge in Gujarat, India, in search of more fatalities. At the time of the collapse on Sunday, 400-people, many of them school-aged children, were on the bridge.

Authorities say many on the bridge were either enjoying the Diwali holiday or were migrant workers attending a Hindu festival.

The bridge was closed for six months for repairs. It reopened just four days before the tragic incident without a ‘fitness certificate’ or the authorities permission.

UPDATED 11:50 AM PT – Monday, October 31, 2022

Elon Musk has taken down a tweet in which he shared an article that alleged that the attack on Paul Pelosi may have been connected to gay prostitution. 

In the now-deleted tweet, Musk shared an article by the Santa Monica Observer, which claimed that Paul Pelosi left a gay bar with a suspected male-prostitute on Friday morning. The two men then went to Pelosi’s home where the assault took place. In addition to sharing the article, Musk tweeted “There is a tiny possibility that there might be more to this story than meets the eye.” 

This report comes after Hillary Clinton and other Democrats attempted to blame “Trump supporters” for the attack on Pelosi. 

 It remains unclear whether the Santa Monica Observer’s claims are accurate.
