From your link....

Quote:
Jim Chase, the Oceanside resident who organized the Campo border-watch event, said those who have been patrolling with him have "not discharged one round yet, not even in practice." He did, however, say he has run across several people who are doing their own patrols.

"The rogue theory is absolutely true," he said.
Whoever is shooting is NOT a member of the Minutemen organization. You should read the things you post BEFORE you post them...

It was in response to farnams claim that they arent allowed to go armed.
And also that quote is a claim.

These guys were illegal transporters. They're not members of the MinuteMen Civil Defense Corp.
"rogue" Minutemen was a name given to them by the MSM just to make us look bad.
As much as you hate to beleive it, the MCDC had nothing to do with this.

This article is over 3 years old.

Your going to have to find something better then that.

So is it your position that ANYONE on the border is automatically a member of the Minuteman organization?

That's a rather broad brush you're using, don't you think?

Interesting sidebar:

New Mexico governer Bill Richardson has essentially decalared NM a Sanctuary State. As you are aware, he was born in Pasadena, CA to a anglo father and Mexican mother. His father was a banker, and met his mother while stationed in Mexico City. When it was time for his mother to give birth, she was flown to CA to ensure that Bill would be a citizen. Given his background (he was raised in Mexico) I understand his position to some extent. What I don't understand is how he can declare the state a "sanctuary", and then declare a state of emergency on the border because of the illegal problem. It is offensive to the taxpayers footing the bill! It is because of his hypocritical positions that he has lost his support here.

Politicians need to take a stance, and be prepared to stick with it when the public sentiment does not. George W. may go down as one of the worst Presidents, but he will also go down as one of the most consistent. He has never waivered from his stance or position in the face of negative public sentiment.

Exactly what is it that makes you think these guys are members of MCDC? Because the person that titled the videos put it in there?

Give me a break, AMC.

When MCDC goes on border watch they're INVITED onto the property, they don't trespass. When on state lands EVERY volunteer has a State Land Use Permit. Members of MCDC carry sidearms if the have a permit, long guns are not allowed.

You should stop using that brush, it's gotta be a half-mile wide by now...
