American Militias Prepare to Stay Indefinitely at The Border

Are these border militias living in “fantasy land”, or exercising their constitutional rights? Opinions are split.

President Trump has been extremely clear with his messages on immigration and border security.

The Commander in Chief believes that a large structure, such as his fabled “wall”, will help to move migrants toward the safer, legal ports of entry into the United States.  This would save many of the poor, sick, and tired from being brutalized or exploited by the “coyotes” and smugglers who traverse the open desert lawlessly and recklessly.

Politically, the President has faced pushback on his wall from the start, culminating in the litigious stalemate that we find ourselves in today.  Trump declared a National Emergency in an effort to free up funds to build his wall – a move that is still grinding its way through the legal system.

In the meantime, a group of brave Americans are on the border and looking to help.

In the southeasternmost pocket of the US state of New Mexico, with El Paso, Texas, to the east and Mexico a stone’s throw south, there is a small camp: a few tents and a weathered trailer.

It is home to the half dozen or so members of the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP) — a small but well-armed militia dipping their toes into the US border vigilante movement.

Their mission is simple, but not for the foolhardy.

“We’re here to assist the border patrol because they are so short handed,” the group’s leader, 70-year-old “Striker,” told AFP.

“We have a good work rapport with them,” he said. “Our goal was to be here until we’re not needed. And when we’re not needed is when that wall is up.”

Those who oppose UCP’s presence on the border do so with gusto, however, often chastising the group as living in a “fantasy world”, and “playing soldier”.

Of course, the Constitution of the United States clearly explains that such militias are appropriate, and protected, by the founding of our nation.
