I had some concern at first about the type of people that the minute man would attract, but It worked flawlessly and showed the complete and utter
incompetence of the border patrol. these guys did an excellent job and show that patrolling the border could be possible with out going to extreme
means like giant walls of military presence on the border. I used to think that would have been the only way to really secure the borders but the
marvelous job done by these guys down in arizona showed me otherwise. If they border patrol can somehow come in and regulate/oversee a long network of
minuteman project along the border working with and along side the border patrol we would really see some changes on the border.
oh and if you think this is bad, mexico is trying to get to the UN to complain about the US plans to help maintain and regulate it's borders. I'm of
the opinion that we do need a good part of the illegals that come across, we need to get them documented and regulated though. And the border must be
organize, it's a complete mess down there. But this is too much even for me, the border patrol got taught a lesson by the minute men on how to do
their job with real results (over 60% drop in activity or something) with out going to extremes or anything and no reports of any injustices or abuses
which really surprise me personally. I was sure that something would have happened with the kind of people who are the most vocal on the immigration
subject, but I admit it when I'm wrong.
