Arizona Border City Threatens To Sue Trump For Adding ‘Lethal’ Razor Wire To Border Wall

Will Donald Trump Win the 2020 Election?

The mayor of Nogales, Arizona is planning to sue the Trump Administration for adding miles of scary-looking razor wire to the city’s border wall.

Arturo Garino, mayor of the Arizona border city, delivered an ultimatum to President Trump to remove the “lethal” wire installed by US troops last week.

The mayor’s ultimatum to Trump to remove the wire or else came during a Wednesday night city council meeting.


From Business Insider:

[Garino] criticized the federal government for adding additional wire in the past week so that it now reaches “all the way down to the ground,” covering the full height of the wall on the US side, which stands some 20 feet (six meters) tall.

The city council passed a resolution Wednesday night that condemned the installation of the razor wire, which covers the wall in the city’s downtown area and described it as life-threatening.

Photos from the city show six rows of the wire cover the wall, which is between 18 and 20 feet (5.5 and 6 meters) high, according to the council.


Around five miles of the US-Mexico border falls within the Nogales city limits. It is not clear whether the entirety of the border is covered by the wall and razor wire.

The resolution passed by the council describes the wire as an “indiscriminate use of lethal force by the federal government” that could harm or kill anyone who tries to scale the wall.

It said that such wire “is only found in a war, prison or battle setting.”

So, the problem with the new wire is that it might actually work? Did I hear that right?

The border wall, complete with the “lethal” and “life-threatening” wire, will now make it more difficult for illegal aliens to enter the country.

So obviously, we need to take it all down and sue the President.

There’s even more nonsense to this story, from Business Insider:

The council also warned that the wire could harm the city’s residents.

It said that “placing coiled concertina wire that is designed to inflict serious bodily injury or death in the immediate proximity of our residents, children, pets, law enforcement, and first responders is not only irresponsible but inhuman.”

It said the wire “is designed to entangle its victim as the razors slice/cut deeply into the flesh and causes indiscriminate injury which can be fatal.”

The council also noted that “on any given day there are hundreds of law-abiding citizens from both countries crossing the border and live alongside the border,” and that having such wire harms life in the city and the local economy. …

OK, but how many of those “law-abiding citizens” are trying to cross the border by scaling the fence? I’m guessing ZERO.

Why is this such a big deal?

The wire-covered wall WORKS. And that’s a big problem for Democrats.
