The United Constitutional Patriots have been kicked off of PayPal and GoFundMe.
The armed group of patriots who have helped detain waves of migrants were booted off the platforms on Friday after a video of the group apprehending 200 migrants went viral.
A spokesperson for PayPal told BuzzFeed News that “The account associated with United Constitutional Patriots has been closed due to a violation of our Acceptable Use Policy.”
The PayPal spokesperson also clarified that “We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory.”
Mark Cheney, the head of the militia group, confirmed that GoFundMe suspended his organization’s accounts.
Cheney told BuzzFeed, “They killed us” and that he has to “find some other way for people to donate.”
GoFundMe stated that “This campaign was removed from the platform because it was found to be in violation of GoFundMe terms and conditions.”
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) wrote New Mexico leaders urging them to prevent the militia from threatening migrant families.
In a letter directed to New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, ACLU attorneys wrote “We cannot allow racist and armed vigilantes to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum.”
Grisham made a statement on Friday, April 22, 2019, stating that it was “completely unacceptable that migrant families “might be menaced or threatened in any way, shape or form when they arrive at our border.”
The governor added “It should go without saying that regular citizens have no authority to arrest or detain anyone.”
BLP recently covered UCP’s efforts and the backlash they have received so far.
With immigration reform moving slowly, certain groups like UCP feel motivated to take matters into their own hands.
BLP has reported on how migrant crossings are about to exceed Bush era levels.
All things considered, law enforcement at the border will need all the help it can get.
Mass migration is taking its toll in the West, and the U.S. is the latest theatre to see unprecedented waves of migrants come across its border.
Donald Trump was largely elected on the basis of his pro-border platform in 2016.
BLP found that this same pro-border platform plays very well with Republican voters and could likely propel him to victory in 2020.
However, as conservative activists like Faith Goldy have found, social media and payment processors are becoming increasingly hostile towards conservative individuals and organizations.
The United Constitutional Patriots are just the latest group to face Big Tech’s wrath.
Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn Calls on Ilhan Omar to Resign After Minnesota Democrat Calls to “Dismantle” U.S. “System of Oppression”
Omar appeared to refer to the American economy and political system as “oppression.”
Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn called upon Minnesota Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from office on Tuesday, hours after Omar had appeared to endorse the “dismantling” of the American “economy and political systems,” calling them a “system of oppression.”

“As long as our economy and our political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shutout, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”
Omar had made the remarks in the context of arguing that Democratic “criminal justice reform” was insufficient to answer the demands of the Black Lives Matter movement, calling for a more dramatic and wide-ranging restructuring of American society.
Blackburn called on the Minnesota freshman Democrat to resign hours after the anti-American speech in a tweet, stating that Omar could no longer credibly follow her oath to preserve the Constitution after referring to the American system broadly as a “system of oppression.”
Ilhan Omar took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution, not shred it. Omar and her Marxist comrades are a threat to our Democracy. Omar should resign.https://t.co/ujBGxbWXtR

Omar’s grandfather Abukar Omar had served as a government official in the dictatorship of Siad Barre in Somalia, and the Omar family sought political refuge in the United States when the Barre dictatorship-known for its human rights abuses and a mass killing of minorities thought of by some as a genocide- was overthrown in a civil war.
