Militia Group Says Members Will Intercept Central American Caravan at U.S. Border

Militia groups and far-right activists are raising money and announcing plans to head to the Mexican border to help stop the caravan of Central Americans, echoing President Donald Trumpís attacks on the migrants making their way toward the U.S.

Their presence has led to conflict in some cases. A militia member killed two people in 2009 during an invasion of what she thought was a drug house near the border in Arivaca, Arizona.

Residents in that same city have been posting signs in recent weeks warning that militia members are not welcome.

Marianna Trevino Wright, a South Texas resident who is director of the nonprofit National Butterfly Center, said she is more fearful of the militias than the caravan.

2. I hope people see this for the Trump-driven stochastic terrorism that it is.

These "militia" are really just violent right wing vigilantes -- the "violent mob" Trump accuses Dems of being.

3. Somehow I don't believe these are the 'well regulated militia' mentioned in 2nd Amendment

These right wing nut jobs just can't wait for an opportunity to play Rambo. It's scary as hell what might happen if they actually come across migrant families.

4. These militia are really good at gunning down 9 year old little girls.

Never mind that she and her family were US citizens, all these trigger happy nutjobs see is brown skin, so they shoot.

5. A few might show up and take pictures of their own bad selves.

As history demonstrates, though, it's very, very unlikely that many will actually take a stand at the border. Militia folks are long on talk and short on actually showing up in a serious way.

Watch.
