    Twenty protesters withstood freezing temperatures over the weekend to defy the project, which started in August after Ducey issued an executive order directing the state Department of Emergency and Military Affairs to fill gaps in the existing border wall in Yuma County. The project's $95 million expansion into Cochise County comprises about 3,000 steel containers, The Associated Press reported. Ducey's office did not respond to multiple requests for comment. Until last week, when protesters blocked access to the site, work crews stacked hundreds of shipping containers topped with razor wire along Arizona's remote eastern boundary with Mexico. Demonstrators say they...

    Election officials in a rural Arizona county are gearing up for a slew of legal battles after they failed to certify the results of the 2022 midterm elections, facing criminal penalties and at least two lawsuits. Two Republican supervisors in Cochise County, Arizona, voted to delay the county’s election results until Friday — four days after the state-mandated deadline. The vote quickly spurred court battles from state officials as they scramble to complete the statewide canvass, which requires certified results from all 15 counties before being completed. “It’s astounding that Cochise County officials failed to certify the election results,” Alex...

    They’re stealing another election right under our noses! The Maricopa County, Arizona Board of Supervisors has certified the governor’s election in favor of incumbent Democrat Governor Katie Hobbs over Republican MAGA candidate Kari Lake, despite the fact that the county ran an election filled with printer breakdowns, questionable security, extremely long waits to vote, and at least five major conflicts of interest. I want you to see what these conflicts of interest were, and how OBVIOUS they were!… Conflict #1: Katie Hobbs to recuse herself from election oversight as Secretary of State in her own election for Governor. Conflict #2:...

    Nov. 28 was the deadline set by Arizona law for counties within the state to approve the official tally of votes for the 2022 election, a process that is also known as the canvass. For 2022, all Arizona counties, except one, have done so, despite pressure from some Republicans not to officially approve a vote count that had Democrats winning for U.S. Senate, governor and other statewide races. Initially, Republican supervisors in Mohave County postponed a certification vote until later Thursday after hearing comments from residents angry about problems with ballot printers in Maricopa County. The northwestern Arizona county, however,...

  • Chaos in Biden's stop-work order on border: 'We just built roads for the cartels'

    President Biden’s decision to stop border wall construction forced crews to put down tools and walk away in the middle of work — and left the border less secure than ever in some places, according to an Arizona sheriff whose county covers 83 miles of the boundary. There are locations where contractors had built the high-speed roads that are part of the border wall system, and which Border Patrol agents are able to use to patrol the new barrier. But when the stop-work order came down, they had not built the actual wall yet. The result: a smugglers’ roadway, where...
  • Buffett son spends millions to boost border security in rural Arizona, report says

    Howard Buffett, Warren’s oldest son, has become a crusader at the border, using his organizations and wealth to boost security efforts of local authorities and volunteer groups, according to a recent report. While his interest in border security may seem odd, a closer look at the 64-year-old billionaire and philanthropist reveals he’s no stranger to the issue. Buffett owns a ranch in Cochise County, Arizona, that sits just 300 yards from the U.S.-Mexico border. In addition, a report by The Phoenix New Times indicated a close relationship between Buffett and law enforcement, with the former reportedly gifting $30 million to...

    Meteor showers are associated with streams of debris left behind by comets. The Perseids are dust bits from Comet Swift-Tuttle and are famous for creating bright fireballs and elevated meteor activity for nearly two weeks in mid-August. This year it is predicted the shower will peak on the overnight of Thursday, Aug. 11, to Friday, Aug. 12. It is predicted to be twice the usual intensity. That’s because Earth will pass through the center of the debris stream rather than the grazing encounter we experience in most years. The display should be well worth the loss of a few hours’...

    The Chiricahua Community Health Center’s mobile clinic has been a boon for the region in recent years since it’s designed to treat rural and low income areas like those found in Cochise County. The clincs are empowered by grants from the national Children’s Health Fund, which made possible the story that NBC News will tell the world this week about Buena rising sophomore Efrain Gonzalez II. The mobile clinic treats Gonzalez for Type 1 Diabetes, which allows him to backpaddle into pass coverage just like any other defender in one of the Colts’ last football practices of the school year.

    It was learned late Tuesday night that Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever has died in a single vehicle rollover accident in Coconino County. Details of what occurred are sketchy as of this hour, but the news was confirmed by Cochise County Supervisor Pat Call at about 11 p.m. Dever was running unopposed in this fall’s election for what would have been his fifth term as sheriff. It is unclear at this time what his sudden passing will mean in the electoral process. The sheriff was more than a local law enforcement official as he took the lead on the national...

    BISBEE — A plan by the Minuteman Project to build an Israeli-style border fence on the property of a local rancher over Memorial Day weekend is raising concern with county officials — as well as with the rancher himself. The leader of the civilian border watch group, Chris Simcox, announced the barrier-building effort in April as a response to the government’s failure to secure the nation’s porous southern border. He said the Minutemen had chosen a design based on Israeli fences in Gaza and the West Bank that have proven effective in curtailing terrorist attacks. On Monday, the group’s national...

Border Patrol officials said they were trying to get the driver to pull over when the truck made too quick a turn and crashed about 4:30 a.m. About a dozen immigrants managed to run away, but agents caught about 70 people, said Agent Sean King, a Border Patrol Tucson Sector spokesman. There were no reported injuries....

    Kolbe watching BP checkpoints in area By Jonathan Clark Herald/Review BISBEE — Congressman Jim Kolbe said he would be “closely watching” the Border Patrol’s management of traffic revision points in the area after the officer in charge of the agency’s Naco station said that a permanent checkpoint on Highway 90 would be reinstated. Kolbe has long opposed permanent Border Patrol revision points, which he says are predictable and ineffective. Instead, he advocates roving checkpoints and has inserted a provision into Border Patrol appropriations bills requiring the agency’s Tucson Sector to relocate checkpoints on a regular basis. “The law allows checkpoints,...

BANKS One of the many signs on the Naco Highway. If you drive along Southern Arizona's border with Mexico long enough, you might see a lone illegal wandering the desert. Or maybe he's hunched at the roadside sipping water from his milk jug. What's he doing there, and where are his compatriots, the people he broke into the country with?

He's been dealing with illegal immigrants for nearly a decade. "I've picked up probably, in the last 8 years, a couple hundred backpacks." Scelso says the Minutemen Project in April must have left an ongoing effect on the border, because it's still pretty quiet around his ranch. "It wasn't until they did show up down here that we finally got the relief we've been hoping for,...
