City in Arizona approves resolution for removal of 'irresponsible' and 'inhumane' razor wire at border wall

U.S. Border Patrol said on Friday its resources were being stretched thin by larger and larger groups of Central American families left by smugglers in remote locations along the U.S. Mexico border.

The mayor of Nogales, Arizona said the officer opened fire after the driver of a truck came barreling toward him and refused to stop.

"Placing coiled concertina wire strands on the ground is typically only found in a war, battlefield, or prison setting, and not in an urban setting", the city council's resolution reads.

On Wednesday night, the city council of Nogales-an Arizona border town with a population of 20,000 people-unanimously passed a resolution calling for the Trump administration to remove razor wire that covers in near entirety a border wall that passes through its downtown.

Mayor Arturo Garino doesn't see the benefit of having this type of wiring.

The Nogales Police Department said only outgoing traffic into Mexico was impacted and travelers were advised to use the Mariposa crossing. "I would not like to respond to one about concertina wire - because it's not going to be something good".

CBP said it would release more information later Friday.

City officials say Army troops installed more horizontal layers of the wire along the border wall last weekend.

Migrants told authorities that buses and trucks dropped them off throughout the night on a nearby Mexican highway that runs parallel to the border and they entered the US together to wait for agents to find them.

The vote comes after USA military troops installed additional layers of wire along the fence over the weekend, and the day after President Donald Trump highlighted border security in his State of the Union address.
