TELL ME THIS IS A JOKE!!!
BY WHOM???!!! AND WHY???!!!
This SHOULD OUTRAGE every single American.
This is total bullshit. Time to revamp the INS - under the direction of DoD.
Told not to report to MM call in's? Thats like not answering a 911 call. Who's side are these people on anyway???
We see the depth of the problem now. Much bigger then we realize.
What this story tells me is that, for all intents and purposes, there is no border patrol. Therefore, the MM are all the more justified in their activities, and ought to expand their scope to include deportations.
WASHINGTON, D.C. Congressmen Tom Tancredo (R-CO) decried a recently-disclosed U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) practice of tipping off the Mexican military to the location of Minutemen volunteers. According to a story in this mornings Inland Daily Bulletin, CBP notifies the Mexican government of when and where the Minutemen are planning to monitor the border and if violence is used by the Minutemen against illegal aliens. There has not been one verified instance of Minutemen volunteers using violence against illegal aliens.
The Mexican military doesnt exactly have a good government reputation. The Border Patrol has documented more than two hundred incursions into the U.S by the Mexican military, and Texas sheriffs even apprehended Mexican government vehicles that were used to ferry drug runners across the border. By tipping off Mexicos military to the Minutemens location, the U.S. government is asking for trouble, said Tancredo.
Heavily-armed military officials stationed only yards from civilians are at least intimidating. I can only surmise that the Border Patrol bureaucrats spying is meant to have a chilling effect on the Minutemens recruitment of more volunteers, said Tancredo.
The Minutemen havent been accused of breaking the law. Quite the contrarythey have gone out of their way to aid law enforcement and ensure the safety of our border. The U.S. government has no grounds upon which to stifle the Minutemens constitutional right to organize, Tancredo concluded. I want to know the legal basis for CBP informing a foreign government of the activities of private citizens who are obeying the law.
Methinks there is more than just people crossing our border. I now suspect that greenbacks are flowing across the border and landing right in border patrol pockets.
