Officials say man shot at border is alive

New strands of concertina welded by U.S. Army engineers to the fence that separates the U.S. and Mexico are shown in downtown Nogales City in Arizona approves resolution for removal of 'irresponsible' and 'inhumane' razor wire at border wall

The border crossing was initially closed after the shooting, but later reopened.

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

The council's resolution says the razor wire would harm or kill anyone who scales the wall and "is only found in a war, prison or battle setting" and shouldn't be in downtown Nogales.

The Nogales City Council condemned the wire and demanded that it be removed over safety concerns for children and pets. The small Arizona border city is fighting back against the installation of razor fencing that now covers the entirety of a tall border fence.

"See we respond to calls at the border", Garino explained to AZ Family. "I would not like to respond to one about concertina wire - because it's not going to be something good".

Bank cuts GDP forecasts as investment falls
Assuming a smooth Brexit, policy makers reiterated that limited and gradual rate increases will be necessary. Ricky Knox, CEO of Tandem, says, "Consumers and investors are both uncertain about the British economy".

There was a similar incident at a different Nogales port almost three years ago.

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

"Border Patrol agents working at the Camp Bounds (Forward Operating Base) early (Friday) morning observed a large group illegally crossing the border and making their way into the United States", according to a news release from Border Patrol.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a statement to the AP that the additional layers of concertina wire were added on government property following a request for additional assistance. The subject was arrested and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Homeland Security Investigations.
