New Mexico citizen formed militias. Let’s see how long it takes for Democrats to call them racist radicals who need their guns seized.
According to The Daily Mail,
Hundreds of asylum seekers surrendered to an armed militia of New Mexico citizens last night, after trying to cross the U.S. border.
A group of 300 men, women and children gave themselves up to the ‘United Constitutional Patriots’, a gang of vigilantes who claim to be made up of veterans and former police officers, who then handed them over to border officials.
Video recorded by one of the militia, Jim Benvie, who has been camping out on the New Mexico-Chihuahua border for two months, shows the asylum seekers walking on a dirt road having crossed through a fence gap in Sundland Park, New Mexico.
Citizens now do what the government failed to do.
The video, which was streamed live on Facebook, shows the asylum seekers giving themselves up to the militia, intending to turn themselves over to Border Patrol.
I literally walked out and I looked, and all I saw was hundreds of people coming at us,’ said Benvie.
Benvie and three other men had been scouting the area Monday night before coming across what the U.S. Border Patrol estimated was 300 migrants.
‘We held them there until Border Patrol came,’ said Benvie. ‘We’re just Americans. We are veterans, we’re ex-law enforcement, we’re people that care about our national security,
We’re people that care about our strained Border Patrol.’
And while Benvie and the United Constitutional Patriots clearly care about the border crisis, leftist live in denial.
For the past year, border crossings in El Paso steadily spiked. In fact, during the Oct. – Nov. period of 2018, as the average number of apprehensions grew, El Paso’s share doubled.
Yet, in February, Beto O’Rourke claimed the border crisis in Texas is a Trump delusion.
Of course, most of Beto’s words are lies perpetuated in an effort to run for President. While I’m not shocked by Beto’s drug use, or benign criminal record, I am shocked by his stand on border security.
He’s a Texan, as am I. Therefore, he should truly grasp the dangers at play. But like most liberals, he’d rather lie to promote a particular narrative than acknowledge the dangerous truth.
The Real Truth
Earlier this year, O’Rourke went head-to-head against Trump with opposing rallies on the Texas border.
Here’s what I wrote at the time:
Democrats targeted Texas a few years back, attempting to turn the state blue. Then they spent mega-millions trying to obtain an upset victory with Beto on their ballot. But after Trump’s rally in Houston, Texas, liberals were knocked down a few notches.
Throughout the midterms, Trump experienced standing room only. Meanwhile, Obama relied on camera tricks just to create crowds while hundreds of seats were unfilled. It was a source of embarrassment for the left.
Tonight’s rally will be no different. Conservatives will pack the house to show their unwavering support for a border wall. And why do conservatives back the wall? Is it just because Trump said so? NO! Conservatives back the wall because obviously it’s something voters are serious about.
In fact, one veteran raised more than $20M in just over a month. People are willing to put their own money behind President Trump. As far back as I can tell, this has never happened on this scale before.
And while conservatives are digging in their pockets, Beto is pretending Texans don’t need border security.
Recently, we reported another story regarding the famed gang member known as El Tory. Military intelligence considers this man one of the most dangerous and powerful members of the Los Zetas Cartel. Furthermore, people say he has more than 45 murders to his credit, and at least 14 of those are decapitations.
After murdering one man, El Tory stole his dead body from a funeral home and put his decapitated head in an ice chest. El Tory dedicated himself to killing off anyone who annoys him. And the brutality of his crimes is hard to outdo.
Yet, bribery and crooked officials managed to free El Tory from prison, where he was serving time for an attack against the American Consulate in Monterrey. So not only is he dangerous, but he’s also ‘connected’ to important people. Now, this guy is standing across our border in Neuvo Laredo glaring at us. I can’t say what his plans are, but he’s living large and in-charge with a past that indicates his plans will be gruesome, at the very least.
So on one hand we have politicians like Beto. He’s willing to tear down the walls that keep El Tory and other illegal immigrants at bay. And on the other hand, we have groups like the “United Constitutional Patriots.”
I know which hand I trust…
