A unanimously approved a resolution in Nogales, Arizona, a town bordering Mexico, calling for the Trump administration to remove the razor wire wall, which almost covers the border wall that passes through the city’s downtown in it’s entirety.
The razor wire was recently installed by the U.S. Army.
The resolution called the razor wire “not only irresponsible, but inhumane” and argues that this type of wall “is only found in a war, prison or battle setting.”

Mayor Arturo Garino called the razor wire lethal, while additional critics said it was unclear if the it was a deterrent to keep possible migrants and asylum seekers from entering the United Stated or keep residents inside the country.
As you can see, the braintrust that is Trump’s coterie of dumbalinas came up with the genius idea of putting up razor-wire…
…on the U.S. side of the wall.
If you’re planning on fleeing the country on foot, I’d suggest avoiding Nogales. They’ve really fenced you in.

The resolution demands the Trump administration remove the razor wire, but if the they fail to do so, then the city council of Nogales will file a lawsuit against the government for its removal.
“The council’s action came one day after President Donald Trump made his case to the American people about the need for a border wall and how he has ordered 3,750 troops to prepare for what he called a ‘tremendous onslaught.'”
