Arizona Doug Ducey just declared a State of Emergency on the Arizona/Mexico border and has unilaterally deployed the Arizona National Guard.
Ducey says he tried to coordinate a response with the Federal government, but the Biden administration would not cooperate.
NEW: The federal government won’t act — but Arizona will. To address the crisis at the border, I’ve issued a Declaration of Emergency and am deploying the brave men and women of our @AZNationalGuard to support law enforcement efforts and protect Arizonans. pic.twitter.com/EdFkiM2C5t
