People reporting group handcuffed them
REYNOSA - A human rights group in Mexico is taking a stand against the Minutemen.
Fortino Lopez Balcazar says, "They're dangerous and their entire group is dangerous for people who want to cross illegally."
Balcazar is the president of Reynosa's human rights organization. He tells us he doesn't advise people to cross illegally, but he does tell them how to do it safely if they're going to do it.
The organization says it's out to warn people what they're up against when they cross the border.
Balcazar says people who cross and have been deported are saying negative things about the Minutemen.
He tells us, "When they intercept them on the other side, they handcuff them, tie them up, holding them for the Border Patrol."
"What gives them the right to believe they're in a position of authority?" he asks. "That's what the Border Patrol is for."
Balcazar is out on the river a few times a week, looking for anything out of the ordinary. He tells us he's looking for the Minutemen.
He laughs and adds sometimes he spots people looking at him through their binoculars on the other side of the river.
We asked the Minutemen organization here in South Texas about its policies. They tell us no one is allowed to speak, gesture, or touch illegals. They say their job is to observe the activity and report it to Border Patrol.
But Balcazar says he'll be watching.
"If we see something going wrong, we're here. And we're going to report it to the authorities," he tells us.

More Americans killed by illegal aliens than Iraq war, study says
When you start digging into the numbers the only ones that can be sourced with the feds are the number of American murdered in 2005: 16692
I have seen federal numbers for illegals held in jail ranging from 19.3% to 27% of the federal prison population.
Here's a sampling of USA cities wanted for murder. What you'll see is that in big USA cities like LA or NYC most of the murderers are Hispanic. Unknown are the % of illegals. In smaller cities the FBI will post the nationalities of the murderers. About 25% of the most wanted are illegals wanted for murder. This number agrees with the percentage of illegals incarcerated in federal prisons. +-25%
Pictures of top 10 most wanted in LA. Up until recent stories about crime in LA posted by the LA Times--the pictures included the nationality of the murderers. They were all foreign nationals and mostly Mexican.
Wanted for Murder in New York City.
Chicago wanted for Murder
Philadelphia wanted for murder
New Orleans wanted for Murder
Pictures of suspects wanted for murder in Washington DC
FBI USA 10 most wanted. (two of 10 are Mexican nationals)
There are currently no exact numbers on the number of Americans killed by illegals. Part of the reason is that the government deliberately obscures the number. I talked on the phone with the head of statistics for the US Bureau of Prisons. He said his office wasn't allowed to publish the number of illegal alien murderers. Rather they were forced to put legal and non legal residents in the same category. I talked to ICE. They put out detailed numbers on illegal child molestors. However, they put out nothing on illegal murderers.
Part of the reason for the silence on the matter is that there is evidence to suggest that most Americans being killed by illegals are black--as is the suggestion in this LA Times Article.
All that said, it could be argued that if you include the number of illegals in state and local prisons the number of illegals in jail shrinks to 6% of the total prison population. Never the less if you multiply 16692 (the number of americans murdered in 2005) * .06 (illegal alien percent of total prison population) * 4 (the number of years the US has been in Iraq). The result is that more americans (4006) have been killed by illegals than have been killed in the Iraq war.
This point needs to be hammered home. Just as the liberals have hammered home the point about americans killed in Iraq.
“They’re dangerous and their entire group is dangerous for people who want to cross illegally.”
What is wrong with that statement?
Do these people have any idea just how stupid they sound?
But Balcazar says he’ll be watching.
“If we see something going wrong, we’re here. And we’re going to report it to the authorities,” he tells us.
This is the border of Bizarro-Land, right?
What’s the Mexican equivalent of ‘Duh’?
Human rights group watching Minutemen, who are watching illegal Mexican immigrants.
To me, it sounds like this human rights group is a bunch of vigilantes.
Sorry, I missed this one earlier devolve. Is Richardson running to greet them? Lol.
“If we see something going wrong, we’re here. And we’re going to report it to the authorities,” he tells us
“and if the opportunity presents itself, we’re going to lie and make up anything we can”
“Fortino Lopez Balcazar says, “They’re dangerous and their entire group is dangerous for people who want to cross illegally.””
I think that is the idea you friggin moron!
Thanks Mr. Bush.
The NRA is saying Richardson would be there choice over many Republicans
And his appointments to the Cabinet and SCOTUS and federal courts would all be anti-gun and pro-illegal alien
I’ve got a good sized collection of vintage antique Colt, S&W, Remington, and other 1840s-1898 handguns but I now plenty of NRA members who will quit the NRA if they ever backed Richardson for President in 2008
Any democrat will lie and drag out their shotguns for a photo-op goose hunt with the NRA - Slick Willie did it and in 1992 the NRA fell for it
In 2004 the NRA was against Kerry but in 1992 the NRA joined with Ross Perot to sell us down the river because they were upset with George HW Bush -
Bill Clinton for 8 years pushing thru gun control and driving honest gun dealers out of business was just not enough I guess
Bill Richardson is an open borders SOB pretending to be a moderate centrist American under his Mexican sombrero
Richardson could never be elected
But if the NRA endorses Richardson I guarantee you I will put the NRA in a world of hurt and they will lose many members who will go elsewhere
Hey, Fortino, you dumbass, how many Mexicans have the Minutemen killed? You KNOW the answer to that is ZIP, ZERO, NO ONE, NADA. You have the nerve to say "they're dangerous" but you don't mention how many MEXICAN CRIMINALS enter into America ILLEGALLY and MURDER AMERICANS? Why is that?
Your President, elPresidente Boosh is allowing those criminals to come into America and kill Americans. I sure hope no one kills one of his loved ones. That would be a real shame!!
Have you already forgot the Spanish lesson I gave you the other night? I told you he is elPresidente Boosh. LOL!
[Any democrat will lie and drag out their shotguns for a photo-op goose hunt ]
That brought to mind the pictures of Kerry coming back from a duck hunt empty handed while the people with him were carrying ducks.
Someone photoshopped a photo so that he was carrying Daffy Duck, lol. Appropriate for Kerry.
I just can’t see Richardson being that popular. The Hispanics will support him naturally. Only time will tell.
