SAN DIEGO When members of an anti-illegal immigration group offered to sponsor litter cleanup on local roads, they never imagined California officials would offer them an Adopt-a-Highway stretch near a Border Patrol checkpoint on Interstate 5, the main artery carrying illegal migrants north from the U.S.-Mexico border.
On Friday, lawyers for the San Diego Minutemen told a federal judge that the state had no right to rescind the offer after state legislators complained to the California Department of Transportation. The group asked that its blue Adopt-a-Highway sign be put back where it stood without incident for about six weeks until the agency removed it in January.
"We were moved to silence our message in response to pressure from the open border advocates and the Latino caucus," said Minutemen attorney Robert Fuselier. "It all comes down to one thing: We can't have our speech because if we do, people who don't like it might become unruly and unlawful."
Attorneys for the state contend the sign was removed because of concerns that demonstrators or vandals could create safety hazards for the 160,000 drivers who pass the checkpoint daily and for Minutemen volunteers collecting litter by the roadside.

Illegal Invaders vs Patriots, Invaders win.
I think Minutemen are American citizens and law abiders, correct? But this wench has no problem with illegals bypassing security checkpoints and violating our borders. I bet there would be not a peep out of any of them if La Raza adopted a stretch of highway.
That sign bothers me, so seldom do I see a Mexican mother hold their childs hand crossing a busy street. And, why don’t they picture her pregnant?
A Black marker could take care of that, and I'm thinking the guy needs a sombrero.
Must be more to the story; perhaps they cut the lanes from three down to two?
I have an idea, let the Minutemen continue cleaning up their stretch of highway, but take all the trash they collect and dump it on that wench’s doorstep.
These government hacks always try to hide behind the veil of "public safety" to justify their idiocy.
how very nanny of them to prohibit speech based on the LISTENER’s perception.
Or protect their voting bloc....
I need to know if there is any relationship between the current Minute Men and the white supremest group, the Minute Men led by Robert DePugh in the sixties. This is what is being alleged in San Diego and Seattle.
