Ducey to send Arizona National Guard to border, declares an emergency in multiple counties

Source: KOLD-TV

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey announced Tuesday, April 20, the state will set aside up to $25 million to deploy National Guard troops to the southern border to help support local law enforcement.

He also declared a state of emergency in Cochise, Pima, Maricopa, Yuma, Pinal and Santa Cruz counties in response to an influx of migrants seeking asylum in Arizona.

The state is set to send up to 250 guardsmen to border communities to help with medical operations at detention centers, install and maintain border cameras, collect data from public safety cameras and analyze trends in known smuggling corridors, according to a news release from the governor’s office.

“The situation in our border communities is just as bad — if not worse — than the coverage we’ve been seeing,” the governor wrote in a statement. “It’s become evidently clear that Arizona needs the National Guard, and the White House is aware of that. Yet, to this day, there has been no action from this administration, and it doesn’t look like they are going to act any time soon. If this administration isn’t going to do anything, then we will.”

10. My school district is on Native American reservation and the tribal council told Ducey he has

no authority there. The mask mandate on the Reservation is still active and heavily enforced.

15. I don't know about the rural counties, but in Maricopa and Pinal almost all refused

I believe there was one Queen Creek district that lifted the mandate. All the big ones kept it in place.

I have to buy Chiclets and pay the Mariachi Band to play me something while my car windows get washed.

And these are just the people who've set up lean-to's in my front yard.

19. I'm with family until June. I teach in Sells.

I will live in the teacher housing behind IOIES starting in June and continue teaching at BMSHS.

I just had to come back from overseas because of COVID19 and instead of moving out there immediately, I am taking care of my parents who are recovering from major illnesses (mom with a stroke, Dad with kidney disease). Now that they are back to almost full strength, I will head out to the apartment I reserved.

27. Tucson to Sells is bad enough. No, I could stay out here instead of there

and do family things since I got back overseas because The Nation is 100% virtually and has completely locked down and shut down everything over COVID19. My school had a full day in service and my principal did it from San Diego and my department chair did it on a plane going to South Carolina.

9. The big lies continue to drop with predictable frequency...And MSM hasn't yet figured out what to do

Headlines and press releases are all we hear on this subject. No context provided.

Where are the satellite photos of huge traffic jams at border crossings, or infrared traces, or interviews with affected townsfolk? I guess genuine research or background information isn't part of the budget at MSM news orgs?

14. I go over the border to Nogales all the time.

I haven't seen anything there, nor in Sasabe.

How are all Arizonans faring in Douglas and out near Somerton and in Lukeville.

the last administration was going to stop the migrants by building a wall, I guess that did not work. and Mexico was going to pay for it.

31. Political kabuki. RepubliQan hysteria.

And fake news: "The situation in our border communities is just as bad — if not worse — than the coverage we’ve been seeing,” the governor wrote in a statement. “It’s become evidently clear that Arizona needs the National Guard..."
