Border Patrol Says No to Militias, Yes to Surveillance Blimps

Picking up the federal government’s slack, various militia groups have assembled along the banks of the Rio Bravo River in deep south Texas in an effort to supplement border security.

Prompted to action by reports that illegals are overrunning the country, and by fears that the influx in its current form will further destroy the country’s infrastructure and, indeed, aid in the dismantling of national sovereignty, militia groups ultimately desire people entering the country illegally to follow the proper channels to gain citizenship.

To this end, they have lent their assistance, free of charge, to federal and state agencies that evidently have their hands full.

But those supposedly in charge of securing the border say militia members, who lack the traditional law enforcement attire, are confusing police officers and border agents.

FK – What a bullshit excuse. Most militiamen have some kind of uniform. How can they tell one set of Nazis from another anyway at a distance?

“I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials.” – George Mason, in Debates in Virginia Convention on Ratification of the Constitution, Elliot, Vol. 3, June 16, 1788
