On US-Mexico border, militia vow to patrol until 'wall is up'

April 10, 2019

In the southeasternmost pocket of the US state of New Mexico, with El Paso, Texas, to the east and Mexico a stone's throw south, there is a small camp: a few tents and a weathered trailer.

It is home to the half dozen or so members of the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP) -- a small but well-armed militia dipping their toes into the US border vigilante movement.

In recent months, thousands of migrants have arrived in Mexico, primarily Central Americans fleeing poverty and violence at home.

US President Donald Trump has described them as a threat to national security, demanding billions of dollars from Congress to build a wall on the southern border.

The resignation of Trump's Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Sunday, reportedly over the president's push to restart family separations at the border, has underscored his failure to get to grips with the issue.

And until the wall is built, the UCP insist they will be there.

"We're here to assist the border patrol because they are so short handed," the group's leader, 70-year-old "Striker," told AFP.

"We have a good work rapport with them," he said. "Our goal was to be here until we're not needed. And when we're not needed is when that wall is up."

Based out of Flora Vista, New Mexico, the group -- made up mostly of older veterans -- enjoys an enthusiastic social media following. Striker can be heard fielding calls during lengthy radio broadcasts streamed online several times a week.

And if you want to sign up to "uphold and defend the constitution?" Just give pick up the phone.

Out in the field -- with tactical gear, rifles and even custom patches -- the UCP say their duties include watching the border, standing guard over people who want to hand themselves in to border patrol and pursuing those who don't.
More at link, good for them.

I'd say they're doing a hell of a lot better than those whining anti-border piss ants walking around with their thumbs up their asses.

Back in the day they were called Minute Men. Ready in a minute to leave the comfort of their homes to defend the sovereignty of our nation.

I'm sure even you could understand that veterans who we sent overseas to protect the sovereignty of other nations, might well view coming home with the silly idea in their heads to do the same for ours.

Call them what you will, they are patriots.

I don't think they teach kids, anymore, about the severe sacrifices people made, to build this country into the greatest nation the world has even seen.
