I can totally import them into a different location, but my whole goal is to create a master folder that contains all of my images in an organized way. I don't understand why it won't import certain files but not others, taken from the same device, in the same format. Any ideas? Sorry for my slow reply!

You do not have write permission in your operating system to copy the photos to the Destination folder in your original attempt to import. You either need to change the permission on the Destination folder to WRITE permission, or select a different Destination folder where you already have WRITE permission (which you have done).
The reason this has changed from earlier when you successfully imported is that either you have (accidentally?) changed the destination folder, or your operating system permissions have changed.
How do I change the permission? They're all my photos taken on my personal devices. Does the WRITE permission get changed on the device or within Lightroom or within the destination?
Permissions are set in your Mac operating system.
