Arizona Spent $175 Million on Shipping Containers and Some Believe They Were Effective
Former Arizona Governor Doug Ducey wanted to protect the state from migrants by placing shipping containers along the southern border with Mexico. Now that the federal government wanted the containers removed, this cost the state around $175 million.
To install the containers, taxpayers paid $120 million to install 3,000 containers. Since the walls are coming down, this costs taxpayers an additional $75 million to remove them.
Under the Biden administration, 1 million migrants have crossed the Arizona border according to Fox News.
But several people in Arizona believe the containers were worth it.
