ALBUQUERQUE — A right-wing militia group operating in southern New Mexico has begun stopping groups of migrant families and detaining them at gunpoint before handing them over to Border Patrol agents, raising tension over the tactics of armed vigilantes along the border between the United States and Mexico.

Members of the group, which calls itself the United Constitutional Patriots, filmed several of their actions in recent days, including the detention this week of a group of about 200 migrants who had recently crossed the border near Sunland Park, N.M., with the intention of seeking asylum. They uploaded videos to social media of exhausted looking migrant families, blinking in the darkness in the glare of what appeared to be the militia’s spotlights.

Professed militias have long operated along the border with attempts to curb the flow of undocumented migrants into the United States. But targeting the recent influx of families, who are legally allowed to request asylum and often quickly surrender to Border Patrol agents, is raising tension with human rights activists in this part of the West.

The only reason I don't support the death penalty is that I don't believe the state should have that much power over its citizens, but conservatives are putting up a very persuasive argument in the other direction.
That's my purse! I don't know you!

Maybe we’ll get lucky and they’ll have an altercation with some stand your ground protestors.

That'd be interesting watching Republicans run in circles trying to figure out if Stand Your Ground or brown skinned people were the bigger problem

Sounds like a direct challenge to America's sovereignty. Send in the army.

Worse, according to the article, the border patrol is actually on board with these criminals. Kidnapping people is ok as long as they have brown skin.

Time to call in the heads of DHS and ICE to ask why they allow this.

...Wait a sec, do we even have acting heads for those agencies?
I'm just passing through. Remember that.

Sickening and frightening in equal measure.
Shooing away pigeons crapping on debate tables is not a violation of the pigeons' free speech.

We need another armed group to shoot down any kidnappers and escort the asylum seekers to safety
