“History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.” The Minutemen showed up when the British were coming, and now — armed citizens have stepped up again.
Texas landowners near the border got a heads-up from authorities — you might expect to see armed citizens on your property. Who are they? They are citizens with the intent of repelling any would-be foreign invaders from the so-called ‘caravan’ from South America.
Armed CITIZENS, you say?
That might actually be a welcome change from what some of these landowners NORMALLY see crossing their property:
Armed Illegals, for instance…

Armed citizens decided to provide support to federal law enforcement officials after they received word that the Central American caravan carrying illegal aliens would be arriving at the United States-Mexico border in the coming days.
According to the Associated Press, activists are coordinating with other citizens about taking a place along the border. One even told them t was “imperative that we have boots on the ground,” Fox News reported.
It is coming practice for Militia and members of the Minutemen to keep watch on the border. When they see someone illegally crossing, they call Border Patrol to come and apprehend the person or persons.
Those who can’t make it to the border have donated money for supplies and equipment. Those who do plan to patrol the border usually bring firearms and tactical gear, Fox News reported.
This is motivated, in part, by who exactly these groups seem to be made up of… it’s hardly a group of families, the elderly, women and other hard-pressed people.
A significant portion of this group are healthy males of military age.
The aggression they’ve shown toward previous national borders hardly makes seem like the honorable souls the activist media would tell us to expect. And now there’s another caravan behind it.
“Behavior that is rewarded,” experts tell us, “gets repeated.”
And if they can bully, bribe, scheme or sneak their way into America, the behavior is rewarded, and those who tried to come in through the lawful method look like dumb suckers.
That’s where this citizen militia group comes in… they want to keep that behavior from being rewarded.
Shannon McGauley, president of the Texas Minuteman militia, told the AP that he already has members at three points of the state’s border and expects 25 to 100 more people to arrive in the coming days.
Militia members and volunteers patrolling the border is a practice that has been in place for decades. Usually, the civilians patrol the border and look out for illegal border crossers. Once they spot a trespasser, the civilians usually contact the Border Patrol to apprehend them. (The Border Patrol is the law enforcement branch of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.)
It’s like Neighborhood Watch… for the whole country.
Some who object think this could create dangerous levels of tension, and possiby loss of life.
That would be all the more reason to hurry up and build that wall, wouldn’t it?
