Armed Vigilantes Detain 300 Asylum-Seeking Migrants, Turn Them Over to Border Officials

Facebook user Jim Benvie streamed a live video of the group on April 16, which shows a large group of migrants that includes young children being directed by members of the vigilante militia. A member of the militia told ABC-7 KVIA that U.S. Border Patrol asked the group to go to the U.S.-Mexico border in New Mexico, although a U.S. Border Patrol spokesperson told the news station that he didn’t believe the militia member’s claim to be true. Daily Mail reports that the group has been stationed on the New Mexico-Chihuahua border for months, where they say they will remain stationed until President Trump builds his long-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall.

The Southern Poverty Law Center described United Constitutional Patriots leader Larry Mitchell Hopkins to be “all-in on conspiracy theories” regarding migrant caravans headed toward the southern border–theories that have been amplified by Trump.

I do not think it an exaggeration to say brown shirts anyone?
