The United Constitutional Patriots, as the group calls itself, reportedly held about 200 "asylum-seeking migrants" – because the media refuses to call them illegal alien invaders – at gunpoint recently near Sunland Park, New Mexico, as they waited for United States Border Patrol agents to arrive and take over from there.
In accordance with the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and in lieu of a proper border wall, these militia members engaged their right to secure a free state by preventing hundreds of illicit border-rushers from entering the country illegally.
Until President Trump fulfills his campaign promise to secure the border, or until Congress enacts better border legislation, the United Constitutional Patriots plan to continue their work, free of charge, in defense of our republic.
"We're just here to support the Border Patrol and show the public the reality of the border," stated Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the militia group from Minnesota, to The New York Times.
"If these people follow our verbal commands, we hold them until Border Patrol comes," Benvie further added. "Border Patrol has never asked us to stand down."
A spokesperson from Customs and Border Protection, however, claims that Border Patrol "does not endorse private groups or organizations taking enforcement matters into their own hands," including the United Constitutional Patriots.
New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham also became triggered when she heard the news, having told the Times that what the militia group is doing is "completely unacceptable" because it's causing illegal alien invaders to be "menaced or threatened."
"It should go without saying that regular citizens have no authority to arrest or detain anyone," Grisham is quoted as saying.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has gone a step further in condemning the United Constitutional Patriots and other similar groups for being emboldened by "the Trump administration's vile racism."
According to Benvie, in the event that militia members identify illegal alien invaders at the border, they give them a "verbal order of arrest" and instruct them to wait in one area until Border Patrol agents arrive.
During one such incident that was captured on video and shared to social media, militia members offered $20 to any of the detained migrants who could identify the smuggler who helped them cross the border, though none of them took the offer.
In no cases do militia members ever point weapons at migrants, however. They also no longer go on patrol with military-style rifles, but instead carry handguns.
"We can't make them stay if they don't want to," Benvie says.
Many people seem to be supportive of the efforts of the United Constitutional Patriots, as they recognize that the situation at the border, if left unchecked, has ominous implications for the future of our country.
"Got to stop being sympathetic because of the kids," wrote one commenter on Facebook in response to the video footage shared by the United Constitutional Patriots. "Got to consider them as collateral damage now. We are DONE."
"If allowed to invade, occupy and take over America, these illegal immigrants will destroy this nation from within," adds Mike Adams, the Health Ranger.
"The votes of American citizens will be overruled by illegals who vote. American culture will be eviscerated and nullified. And the American taxpayers will see all their earnings and assets confiscated by an increasingly left-wing government that can only stay in power by handing out more benefits to the voting mass of illegals who are handed voting rights by lawless Democrats."
