Arizona’s shipping container wall on border is coming down

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.
