The United Constitutional Patriots, a New Mexico militia, has taken border security measures into their own hands.
According to the New York Times, this militia group stopped migrants who illegally entered the country and turned them over to Border Patrol agents.
The UCP has operated along the southern border for some time in efforts to contain the flood of illegal immigrants crossing the border.
This week alone, KVIA reports that the group caught 350 migrants who crossed the border in West El Paso, Texas.
UCP Commander John Horton told KVIA that “This country was built on three things: God, guns and guts. That American flag has to keep flying.”
Horton added, “It’s in danger, a lot of danger right now.”
Naturally, the American Civil Liberties Union denounced the group in a letter sent out to the New Mexico Governor and and Attorney General’s office requesting for an investigation of the militia group.
In the ACLU’s view, the group has no legal authority to detain or arrest migrants under New Mexico or federal law.
ACLU lawyers María Martínez Sánchez and Kirsten Greer Love instantly played the race card saying that “We cannot allow racist and armed vigilantes to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum.”
This par for the course for the ACLU, who recently warned immigrants and people of color about traveling to Florida because of its allegedly “racist” immigration laws.
New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas commented on the UCP’s activities, stating that “These individuals should not attempt to exercise authority reserved for law enforcement.”
Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham echoed Balderas’s sentiments saying that it was “completely unacceptable” that migrants “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.”
ZeroHedge reports that Jim Benvie, the spokesman for the UPC, fired back against these claims. Benvie told the Times over the phone that the militia’s actions were comparable to a “verbal citizen’s arrest.”
Benvie said, “We’re just here to support the Border Patrol and show the public the reality of the border.”
The militia spokesman added that the UCP “plans to remain on the border until President Trump’s proposed border wall is built, or Congress changes immigration laws so that it’s harder for migrants to request asylum.”
Although Trump has been able to secure $1 billion in wall funding, his hands have been tied because of a divided Congress.
So there’s very little chance that other meaningful immigrations reforms will be passed until after 2020.
In the meantime, groups like the UCP will likely continue their activities in the absence of a serious government plan to stem the flow of mass migration.
Mass migration in the West is putting tremendous social pressure on countries. Nationalist movements have sprouted all over in response to the unprecedented flow of migrants entering European countries and America.
Immigration looks to be a major issue in the 2020 elections, with GOP voters declaring that it’s their #1 issue.

CAUCUS CHAOS: Democrat Mouthpieces Try to Downplay Bernie’s Victory Because of Volunteer Shortages
In an effort to downplay the inevitably of Bernie Sander’s victory at the Nevada caucuses, CNN political analyst Laura Barrón-López was reporting about chaos taking place throughout caucus sites in the state.
She first Tweeted, “New: POLITICO has heard from multiple Democrats, campaigns on the ground that there is a shortage of volunteers at caucus sites Story is developing… 1/”
Then she followed up in another Tweet, stating “NSDP party officials are telling campaign representatives that there’s a deficit of volunteers across the state, and so they are asking representatives of campaigns to act as precinct chairs, per multiple sources on ground.”
Barrón-López continued talking about the shortage of volunteers: “Per Dem source: ‘I’m at Spring Valley High School and a lot of the Nevada Dem Party volunteers did not show up. They are worried about the precinct chairs showing up as well.’”
With Sanders winning, the Democrat establishment is clearly on the ropes.
They are trying to pull every rationalization possible to downplay and not recognize Bernie Sanders’ victories.
The Democrat leadership is clearly rattled and they’re starting to come to grips with the reality that Donald Trump will practically be a shoo-in for a second term.
