The City Council of Nogales, Arizona, has voted unanimously on a resolution ordering Trump administration officials to rip out new “lethal” razor wire coiled on a border fence along the downtown shopping district.

Such wire is “only found in a war, prison or battle setting” and is highly inappropriate for an urban area, states the resolution the council passed Wednesday. The bristling concertina wire is now attached to the fence from top to bottom.

“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,” the resolution states.

The resolution demands that officials remove all concertina wire within city limits. it also states that no military force or the “use of military-type tactics designed to inflict indiscriminate harm” should be allowed in Nogales without an express declaration of war by Congress — or a national emergency.

Remember this is a border city that is more afraid of the damage done by the Trump Administration’s draconian anti-immigrant methods then they are of the actual immigrants. 

I have to say that I had never seen how much wire they were using before, but now that I have it seems almost comical.

I mean this is not being used to keep murderers and rapists incarcerate, it is being used to keep people looking for freedom from entering the United States of America. 

Every day America looks more and more like a parody of itself.

    El Paso has great grassroots leadership that stands up for our community and defends the vulnerable. Can’t wait to hear about what they’ve got planned in the face of outright lies about us and cheap attempts to use our community as a political prop

    “caravan” =“Gypsies” and other invaders…
    “is bolstered by Trump’s repeated characterizations of immigrants as criminals, rapists and gang members. It’s clearly a racist pejorative.
    It’s also a pretty gross misrepresentation of the reality”
    “Anglin, Enoch, and other white supremacist influencers had begun to use the hashtag #StopTheCaravan. They urged their army of trolls—which easily numbers in the millions—to create and post memes in support of the effort to get Trump to publicly characterize the “caravans” as invaders.Things were progressing far faster and hotter than anyone imagined. Then they struck gold.”
    “What is important is the bright line clearly linking the coordinated efforts of white supremacists and far-right bigots to the rhetoric that has since become White House policy.”
    “allied constituencies are working together to create a toxic public debate that demonizes immigrants as “caravans” of invading hordes, because this context enables them to escalate the immigration debate, militarize the border, and put brown-skinned kids in cages. None of this is rhetorical. Nor is it a mistake. It is, rather, the coordinated effort of an energized, dedicated group of extremist activists, who are employing sophisticated means of achieving their policy goals. And they are succeeding.”

      ” “The real national emergency here is, Joy, a sea full if ignorant red MAGA hats who have no type of intellectual curiosity about these things.”

      “They will take this president’s word even if it’s at their own peril,”
      ““There is nothing that supports this president’s lies. It’s just a bunch of people that have no interest in truth. They are fact-averse. And this is how he’s able to get away with this time and time again.””

      Since trump hires illegals, has anyone thought that maybe the caravans are coming to work at trump properties? Maybe Eric has put “help wanted” signs up in Honduras and Guatemala:)

          Understood, but he DOES look upon it dearly while he rapes citizens inside of any form of livelihood.
          Thank you, Gryph, I will defend your voice to the end.

    So much for “beautiful, most beautiful wall ever”

    That razor wire barricade is the stuff that the Iron Curtain was made of. Is that what the USA is about to become? I support the razing of the razor wire and some serious re-education for those in Washington who support such barriers.

    Nogales, good for you! and an example for the rest of us.

    That is utterly obscene, but typical of Trump.
