Arizona Declares State of Emergency Over Illegal Migrant Surge

An Arizona mayor has declared a state of emergency because of the numbers of illegal migrants the feds are dropping off in his close-to-the-border city.

Yuma Mayor Doug Nicholls, a Republican, said Tuesday he made the decision after nearly 1,300 migrants flooded his city of 95,000 in the past 19 days.


He warned that nonprofits helping the migrants were operating beyond capacity, and there was no end in sight to the illegal migrant surge.

Nicholls called on the feds to do more to help, perhaps by “bringing in a FEMA-type response to our community, so FEMA and the federal government in their response could address the situation.”

These are economic migrants. More than 80% of these ‘refugees’ are refused this status and ordered to leave the US.

Of course, they never do, causing all the chronic difficulties in logistics in services, housing and costing US taxpayers an estimated $200 billion annually.
