Improvised Explosive Device Found In Small Arizona Border Town As Chaos Continues With End Of Title 42

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials encountered an "inoperable destructive device" in "the area Port of Douglas, Arizona" on May 6th, according to Just the News. Douglas, Arizona is a border town. The device in question was found while officials were "conducting secondary vehicle inspections" a Customs and Border Protection spokesperson told the outlet. 

The spokesperson continued to inform Just the News of the history behind the encounter. "Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) was contacted to inspect the device. Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) was contacted and responded to the port to interview the subject...A complete search of the vehicle was conducted after AZDPS had removed the destructive device with no additional items located. Please contact HSI and AZDPS for additional information."

Ali Bradley, a network correspondent for News Nation, commented that "An improvised explosive device bound for the U.S. was intercepted at an Arizona port of entry. The improvised explosive device was intercepted during secondary inspection by CBP officers at the Douglas, Arizona POE on May 6th. The IED was made using an M&M container with electrical tape. Blue and red wires were exposed at the end of the container. I am waiting for more information regarding who the subject who attempted to get the device into the country..." She then posted photos of the alleged object. 

Who planted or created the device remains at this time unknown. In the meantime, the Biden administration is struggling even more than usual as it faces post-Title 42 migrant waves arriving and Fox News reports that the Department of Homeland Security is forcing border officials to work over the weekend in an effort to cope. 

Republicans have passed the Secure the Border Act of 2023 in the House to try to offer a legislative means to deal with the immense problem. However, its chances in the Democratic-controlled Senate of passing are small and the White House threatened to veto the measure. Republican frustration over the lack of security on the border boiled over into rumors that they will try to impeach Biden's Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, for dereliction of duty.
