Militia group heading to Texas border (‘Get back across the border or you will be shot.’)

A group that identifies itself as a coalition of “Patriots” has put out a call for people to go to the Texas-Mexico border and help with a citizen militia operation called “Secure our Border - Laredo.”

A spokeswoman for the group, Denice Freeman, said the operation is a call for civilian militia members — both armed and unarmed — to voluntarily guard private property in the Laredo area and other Texas locations where owners feel threatened by “drug cartels and from gangs, particularly the MS-13 gangs,” a Salvadoran-based gang that is considered among the most dangerous in this country by law enforcement.

The militia is the whole of the people.

And Sheriff, you do need their services on the border, you do not have the manpower to repel the invasion.

It is a bit of ridiculous bombast, but . . . Is it not high time that Americans started to physically take their nation back from these meso-American invaders?

I can't help but have a grudging respect for these militiamen who at the very least are doing something.

This is a hostile takeover orchestrated by the left and with mestizo foot soldiers.

This will ensure permanent democrat rule in the long run

Remember, some of these law enforcement people are actively encouraging the invasion. They need to be relieved of duty.

We’re all in the militia, unless we are serving in the regular armed forces or are too old.

The 'news article' reads like propaganda designed to make the militia or anyone that is opposed to the illegal invasion look bad.

I don't think the militia going to the border would be very effective since Uncle Scam itself is bringing the illegals aliens in under orders from the Coyote-in-Chief.

The militia should converge on Rick Perry's office or where ever he shows in public and demand that he use is power as Governor of the sovereign State of Texas to stop this invasion. He should be doing everything in his power to stop his invasion, including declaring a State of Emergency or State of Invasion, sealing the border, deporting illegals and arresting those transporting illegal aliens for human trafficking and endangering the public health.

“You see an illegal. You point your gun dead at him, right between his eyes, and you say, ‘Get back across the border or you will be shot.”

In the upsidedown legal system in our nation, there would be some Democratc District Attorney that would file murder charges on a militia member who acted in such a manner.

“Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra “

There’s a name that inspires confidence in getting rid of the Hispanic hordes.

And the “militias” would grouse and fade back into ignominy once more.

The problems with America are being faced from the wrong angle. This is evil with Satan’s power in it. Facing that in worldly power is just going to get you a big fat lose, guaran-”damned”-teed.

Has he used manpower to repel the invasion? How many casualties? Does he not need reinforcements? Is he winning?

Really, well sheriff you and the rest of the police forces don't seem to have the manhood to stand up to clinton, obama, and the invasion going on.

The state is constitutionally eligible to repulse an invasion and it does not need Uncle Sam’s by-your-leave, or volunteer troops from elsewhere.

What it does need is the guts, at the state house (to pass the law governing it) and at the governor’s mansion.

And it has to be ready for the uber-tantrum from Washington if that occurs. Any benefit program to the state that Barack can yank, WILL be yanked.

Obama and the Feds have facillitated this invasion. The rule of law is dead in America. The GOP is quiet, either too afraid or (more likely) agreeing with the invasion. Anything to dilute the vote and the power of the conservative/tea-party class, and replace them with subserviant, socialist-inclined drones. The states are all talk, no action, and afraid to assert their authority.

The ONLY thing standing between America’s complete and total destruction are the citizens/militias. We’re ALL going to have to take this on. Because not only our country, but our lives, will depend on it.

May I spread a little cheer here? We are led by a president who invented 'roof hits.' Here is a congressman who believes Guam will tip over if too many people visit it, and just a couple days ago, the Navy announced its latest 4-star admiral. Her mission is to "end gender discrimination." My point being, these are not the Redcoats. This is not King George. These are drugged-out, low IQ affirmative-action children. These people couldn't fight their way out of wet paper bags.

This militia group has not been called up to active duty. They are civilians voluntarily going to guard private property. That’s totally different from active militia duty.

Texas State Militia groups are not vigilantes or insurgents. When on active duty, which means called up by the Governor of Texas, we follow all state laws and are subject to the Texas Military Code of Justice.

These civilians will be subject to civil authority and prosecution. They need to be very careful how they handle themselves.

Governor Perry needs to call up the reserve militia before this gets out of hand.

I doubt he invented roof hits, but he helped that concept enter the popular lexicon.

Here’s my take: The States need to reinvent the Federal government. Constitutional convention if necessary.

Which is currently impossible since ‘the people’ keep electing ‘lesser evils’ that will never fire those whose agendas they support.

Which is why keeping RINOs out of office is so important. And which is why electing principled people matters. Fortunately many are waking up to that.

The young Obama popularized the concept of 'roof hits', when all the windows of a car were rolled up so you could suck up the last bit of smoke from the ceiling. 'Wasting good bud smoke was not tolerated,' Tom Topolinski, one member of the Choom Gang, told Maraniss. 'Barry also had a knack for interceptions. When a joint was making the rounds, he often elbowed his way in, out of turn, shouted "Intercepted!", and took an extra hit. No one seemed to mind.'

I agree with you. I only hope that, if violence involves the militia, it is violence that accomplishes something and not some tragedy like Waco.

When they elect “greater good” (which is the spirit of Christ) in their hearts, then the benefits in the ballots will follow.

You keep on harping on the false premise “lesser evil.” There ain’t been ANY perfect person on an earthly ballet, EVER.

Good loyal hispanic Texians fought and died for Texas independence from Mexico, at Goliad, in the Alamo, and in other battles leading up to San Jacinto.

Their descendants still live here, and hispanic surnames are the rule rather than the exception from San Antonio southward, and have been for centuries.

I am afraid this could lead to exactly the kind of reaction Obama is trying to precipitate.

He would love nothing more than to have a few illegals shot by “Bitter Clingers” or to have shots exchanged with ICE agents.

I’m not sure what the ‘win’ is here.

1. Possible criminal prosecution of anyone acting as ‘militia’ that they are committing criminal assault or, if they put people in vehicles and drive them back to the border, kidnapping.

2. The press WANTS victims so they can tell the sad sob story of these illeg - excuse me, migrants who want nothing but work and are harassed by racists when they get here.

3. If ANY illegal act is committed by one person, the entire group can be found part of the ‘conspiracy’ and be equally guilty.

Illegal act. Could be the cartel fires upon the militia members or they are physically assaulted. If the militia members respond in kind, it’s St. Treyvon round 2.

I don’t see any ‘win’ here showing up with guns on the U.S. border.

I see many negative outcomes possible though.
