Mecha by its very nature is a small, poorly funded group that is , for the most part, just blowing off steam. They dont have deep pockets to go after.

the Minutemen are different, once well financed and most are businessmen with property and assets. And worse for the Minutemen, is that they have set themselves up to be confrontational...either on the border, or at marches or demonstrations.

Tempers flair and sometimes get out of bounds...Everthing is being taped these days, so if an altercation happens...It is used as reason that the Minutemen are dangerous and violate civil rights.Lawsuits are filed and money and time spent procecuting or defending cases.

Again bad for the Minutemen, they also get wrapped up in the lawsuit game and to prove a point they are using vital funds. It cost them so much more to put guys on the border, and they are at the crossroads now...to see if they are even able to raise enough money anymore to function.

And I repeat: those same tactics can and will be used against the illegal alien apologist groups................trust me.

Just accept the fact there will be no amnesty; the party is over for illegal aliens here in the USA.
