How do you propose that they be stopped? They are within their legal rights to drive or fly their planes anywhere they want in this country. This is true whether they are monitoring for illegal aliens or migrating ducks. God bless them.

Well, if they're tresspassing, they should be arrested. Someone owns the land they'll be trampling on.

I think a lot of the ranchers who own the land have invited the Minutemen to patrol their land so then it would not be trespassing.

I believe these ranchers are very frustrated that the illegals trespass at will across their land and are not arrested. Apparently only Americans have to obey the law.

A few of the ranchers have denied them access because they think they will be subject to retribution from the drug and human smugglers after the 30 day project terminates. They know that Americans can't count on the Federal government to protect them from Mexican foreign nationals who regularly invade their property. I don't blame them for being fearful but it is sad and President Bush deserves harsh condemnation for his failure to carry out his Constitutional mandate to protect them.

I think the vast majority of the land is Federal and any citizen, subject to certain fairly nonrestrictive regulations, is free to enter it and camp on it for 30 days at a time.

I don't think private property trespassing will be a concern. The organizers have been getting written permission from landowners who are fed up with the nightly trampling of their property by the illegals. Many landowners are requesting that MM volunteers 'camp' out with their RV's on the property during the program.

Some of the ranchers closer to the border are not allowing the MM to cross their property because they are too close to the Mexican border. They are afraid of vigilantism from Mexican drug cartels if they do.

Calling the Sheriff, who could take an hour or more to get to their property wouldn't have much effect at preventing or arresting angry Mexicans from cutting their fences, would it?

These people would come in, cause the damage intended and be back across the border into Mexico before the sheriff even arrived.

We all know that our law enforcement people aren't going to pursue revengeful criminals across the border into Mexico.

Most of the people on the border welcome this.

I suspect that at least some of the volunteers will be land owners who are sick and tired of getting shot at by drug runners and having their houses broken into by the illegals. I also suspect the organizers will try and get permission from other land owners to traverse their land and perhaps set up spotting locations.

The MM will be doing them a service their tax funded agencys are either unable or unwilling to do. I can't see why they'd object.
