Volunteers who intermittently stake out portions of the southern Arizona desert hoping to spot and report suspected illegal immigrants will begin another monthlong operation this weekend.

I'm wondering if the upper echelon of the border patrol with the help of the Bush administration will still be giving Mexico the locations of the minutemen so that Mexico will be better able to guide their illegal border jumpers on the best route to break in to avoid detection from the minutemen?

I have heard from others that the minutemen as far as the border patrol is concerned a problem. Believe it or not, I don't care. Not everyone loves the minutemen.

Yeah, right . . . where do you come up with these stories??? Still hung up on hating Mexicans?

ANYONE can come into Mexico at the border crossings WITHOUT any documentation (you, of course, should have some ID, and the US folks require it to get back across).

This "no papers" crossing is good for about 50 miles into Mexico (depending on where you are) and is open to all visitors (bring your dogs too, here they're allowed to play on the beach).

Further into Mexico or longer stays DO require a Visa (simple to get, know as FMs here).

Yes, Mexico is still open and friendly, happy caring people. A drivers license will still get you back to the U.S. They have some of the finest dentists there and half the cost of the USA. Have made some wonderful friends there and always enjoy seeing them. There is no hate coming from that side of he border.

Do they really do that???? Our goverment, Noooooooooo
