Mexican Military on Standby in Response to Minutemen (Fox sending in the Military?)
Newsmax ^ | 3/31/05

Posted on 03/31/2005 11:11:50 AM PST by areafiftyone

Mexico's President Vicente Fox is preparing to respond militarily to a group of U.S volunteers who plan to patrol the U.S.-Mexican border starting tomorrow, positioning more than a thousand troops nearby, according to an Arizona TV station.

"The Mexican military is on stand-by," reports NBC's Tucson affiliate KVOA. "One unit has about a thousand soldiers. They're located just across the border." Over the last week spokesmen for the border patrol volunteers, who dub themselves Minutemen, have said they will not attempt to detain Mexican illegals, but rather report them to the Border Patrol and track them till they're apprehended.

Despite the assurances, Mexican officials met with the mayor of Douglas, Arizona on Tuesday to discuss how they will handle potential violence, KVOA said.

Last week President Fox warned at a Mexico City press conference:

"We totally reject the idea of these migrant-hunting groups. We will use the law, international law and even U.S. law to make sure these types of groups, which are a minority, will not have any opportunity to progress."

Those guys are true patriots for standing up to this absurdity. If anything happens to them I think we need to revisit the halls of Montezuma.

How about the law that says stay in your own country and you do not cross the border without proper paperwork?

What are they going to do? immigrate?

And that's right where they should stay.

I don't understand what the big hub hub is about. Americans have the right to defend their country from invasion.

Any bets on the percentage of the 1000 soldatos that Fox sends to the border who desert and become illegals themselves?

"This is how wars start folks."

But in this case the Presidents of the two countries in question are on the same side.

They have been on the payroll for a while already - if you know what I mean.

Look, the worst possible thing for us to do is beat Mexico in a war. Then we'd have to straighten up their affairs, and that always involves a certain additional complement to the immigration quotas to take care of the de riguerre Quislings and collaborators we hire.

Where are our troops sitting if their troops are across the border? Are our troops going to be used for what they should be used for, Defending the USA? What if the Mexican Army crossed the border, who is going to stop them, police officers? or a line of tanks?
