are joining cults and as cult members are taking on enforcer roles and other 'important' authority or expert positions they don't qualify for in real life. That is why civil society and union membership and volunteering are so important. They allow us to be in the villages we all evolved in as human beings and belong to.

Posing as Border Patrol, militiamen are harassing asylum-seekers on the Mexico border

Apr 19, 2019 4:00pm Eastern Daylight Time by David Neiwert, Daily Kos Staff



When border militias start getting involved with people crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, it’s always a nightmare waiting to happen—or rather, to happen again. When they start targeting asylum-seekers, as they appear to be doing in New Mexico, it’s a recipe for disaster.

An outfit calling itself United Constitutional Patriots has been prowling the borderlands in New Mexico’s Sunland Park area and rounding up asylum-seekers whom they encounter, turning them over to authorities with U.S. Border Patrol.

What’s clear is that the militiamen are presenting themselves to the refugees—most of whom, their own interviews reveal, appear to be arriving from Central America seeking asylum on a variety of grounds—as official federal patrolmen.

“Alto! U.S. Border Patrol!” announces UCP militiaman Jim Benvie at the opening of one of his Facebook videos showing his encounters with border crossers, as Benvie proceeds to interrogate them about their travels and how often they’ve attempted to cross. His confused interlocutors mostly smile back.
