Border Patrol(s)

In addition to the 'Minuteman Project' which I have posted on here, here, here, and here, and another new group called the 'Yuma Patriots' (which I posted here) that was "scheduled to begin operations today (April 16th) along the U.S.-Mexico border south of Yuma, Ariz., to curb rising numbers of illegal aliens flooding into southwestern Arizona.................."

".............. has spawned the creation of similar civilian patrols from California to Texas."

These other new patrols (not affiliated with either The Minutemen Project or the Yuma Patriots) "are preparing to be up and running over the next several months in California, New Mexico and Texas. Officials familiar with the California effort believe volunteers will be patrolling the border in San Ysidro, Calif., by June."

The U.S. Border Patrol has acknowledged receiving 317 calls from Naco and Douglas, the site of the Minuteman vigil, that have resulted in 846 arrests of illegal aliens, but has not confirmed whether any of those calls came from the volunteers.

Mr. Simcox's Minuteman partner, James T. Gilchrist, said several Border Patrol field agents told him they 'tremendously appreciate' what the volunteers are doing to bring attention to the porous border.

He said the agents, all of whom asked not to be identified, reported that since the volunteers arrived, apprehensions in the 20-mile area where the Minutemen have set up observation posts have dropped from 1,000 a day to less than 20.


  • I can not believe I voted for a liberal in 04. Bush is fighting *for* the ACLU gainst real American patriots. Expect the social security tax to be hiked 11% to $100,000. A big government liberal I voted for!@? His slur of the Minutemen will hurt conservative Republican in 06.

  • While I believe GWB is a good man, and yes, I too voted for him, there was no REAL alternative, he has disappointed me particularily on immigration, border protection,etc.

    The elephants have both the House and Senate, he can't run for re-election again, obviously, so he doesn't have to be quite so calculating - worrying about poll numbers, etc.; so my question is "what's the hold up?", "why isn't more s@!t getting done?"

    Extreme disappointment and frustration has set in and heavy-handed's fist is white-knuckling now.
