The US Drug Enforcement Agency has issued a report that states that the Minutemen have been effective in reducing drug traffic coming from Mexico into the United States. The report estimates that the drug flow has been reduced 20% between 2004 and 2005.

DEA Report: Minutemen reduced drug trafficking

The Minuteman Project formed for one purpose: to protect the border, and it has, according to an internal Drug Enforcement Agency report.

The report credits the border watch group with helping to cut down on drug trafficking.

This intelligence report obtained by News 4 says that the Minuteman Project had an impact on drug trafficking in Cochise County in 2005.

The report was careful to point out that the Minutemen were not the sole reason for the drop in drug traffic. They cite increased border patrol and the Mexican government as additional factors.

But, anytime there are more eyes focused on a problem, the better. And the Minutemen are once again proving their value as an effective crime deterrent.

Plus, there's probably more, higher-quality stuff coming in across the Canadian border.


Just meaning, I think people who smoke mj are demanding hydroponic specially bred varieties now rather than the dirty seed-filled mj from Mexico.

I would have no idea about that, dj.


But the fact is, the other benefit of the Minutemen is slowing the flow of illegal immigrants into the US from the south.

A better measure would be the amount of coc aine crossing the border. That can't come from anywhere but from the south.

So, these minutemen who only cover areas of the border that are twenty miles wide have been instrumental in dropping US drug imports by 20%?

uh, right.

Sounds a bit fishy to me, too, nerdling.

On the other hand, the vast majority of illegals are crossing in about 5 major areas, generally just outside of urban areas. They don't go 75 miles out into the Sonoran cactus and sand, hiking for days, in order to cross unobserved.

Instead, they have someone drop them of in the outskirts of a mexican border town, where they cross a couple of arroyos, and jump a fence and walk through a city dump and then try to find a friend's house on the north side.

They do this in packs of 50-100. Because BP is never prepared to arrest hundreds of people. That strategy insures most will get away. If you cross with 2 people, the BP can haul you both away, no problem.

The minutement pick a stretch where the big crowds cross. That does make a dent, if you do it for enough days.

Minor victory, but a victory all the same. You may choose to believe it or not, but supporting facts to the contrary would make your case more than a smilie.
