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.
