‘Armed patriots’: the private citizens out to secure the U.S. border

The Patriots Information Hotline, a networking call center, estimates that 22 groups of “armed patriots” have sprung up along the border from Texas to California this year.

With names like Patriots and Citizen Defenders, the groups often set up camp on private land along the border at a property owner’s invitation. Expenses are generally paid by members, though some funds come from like-minded donors.

To critics, they are militias – vigilantes spoiling for a fight. For would-be migrants, they are another barrier to entry. For the U.S. Border Patrol, they can be either a nuisance or a help in spotting people trying to enter the country illegally.

The groups insist that their presence is unrelated to the tens of thousands of children from Central America who flooded across the border with Mexico earlier this year. Law enforcement officials say an increase in people taking part in citizen patrols in border states coincided with the attention being paid to the issue of unaccompanied minors this year.

FK – But oh dear, we can’t use the ‘m’ word. We won’t win this war until we stop allowing our blood domestic enemies to decide what we think and say. How ironic that our ‘amerikan’ corporations moved their facilities to Mexico and Asia and their peasants still want to come here. They must not have gotten the memo:

Mexico Is the New Detroit; Forbes Credits NAFTA

FK – Amerikan corporations didn’t move their facilities to Latin America and Asia because they felt sorry for the peasants there. They knew they’d find desperate workers willing to do or say anything to get or keep a job, just like they want here.

And ‘Libertarians’ and ‘conservatives’ wonder why so many don’t listen to their messages. Even a jackass knows who holds the whip, even if they never see who really owns the plantation.

For those who don’t remember NAFTA was voted in by the ‘party of the little man’ and signed by Klinton after claiming during its campaign it was against it. What fools the amerikan electorate are. Immediately after that vote was cast 30 million should have gone to the district of commie criminals, dragged all of them out of the capital building by their heels and hung them from the trees along Pennsylvania Ave.
