Agree.........they're screwed. Did ya see mulders thread ?
The MM will be doing nothing unless the INS chooses to let them. The MM have no legal right to stop people in this country. There is no such thing as a 'citizens arrest' under federal law. They're wasting their time and the time of the INS, which is going to have to clean up their messes. How would you like Sarah Brady knocking on your door because she thinks you've violated some gun law?
Ironic this militia group is complaining to the government (that it feels is failing its members) that the ACLU, in exercising its first amendment rights, is somehow infringing on theirs.
From what I understand, Mike, this go-round will only last one month. Simcox and Gilchrist may run another iteration, but I haven't heard anything along those lines yet.
Any chance they'll ever catch this hombre?
I cringe at the thought of violence between these two groups and the fallout that will inevitably follow. I do support the project, however.
If your business suffered because people would not shop at your store, because the ACLU paid for radio ads calling you a neo-Nazi, would that be fine with you?
Free speech, right?
Of course, the ads would use careful legalese, such as, "ClintonBeGone is thought by many to be a child molesting neo-Nazi."
That would be fine with you?
No, which mulder thread?
actually, i was *astounded* (open-mouthed) to see cnn Lou Dobbs talking about the 'hypocrisy' of the mexican government in threatening to sue in AZ, etc. It was an amazing piece, and that CNN carries this tells me the media has 'deemed' that illegalgration and border control will now be a topic of public debate. No doubt that the minutemen group has forced the timing of this.
There has been some focus from CNN lately on the illegal immigrant issue, and it has been pretty hard on fedgov and mexgov.
