Photos show border militias moving across Texas

Photos showing dozens of members of the militia groups on the U.S.-Mexico border carrying semi-automatic rifles and wearing masks, camouflage and tactical gear provide one of the first glimpses into the group's activities on the border.

Members of the militia groups, who say they have 10 active "teams" along the state's southern border, are seen at campsites, walking along the Rio Grande River, pointing rifles and pistols out of frame and flipping off the camera in the photos obtained by the San Antonio Express-News.

A spokesperson for the group provided the photos under the condition that members' faces be blurred because of fear of being identified by "cartel and gang members."

One of the photos shows a Border Patrol agent leaning through an armed militia member's vehicle window and pointing on a map. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection earlier this month strongly rebuked the group's presence on the border but did not return multiple requests for comment regarding the photo.

They are doing the job the government should be doing

I support this, but the first incident that happens, the militia member involved is going to spend massive amounts of time in prison to scare other like minded people from participating.

What a pisser!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the border situation is moving closer and closer to a boiling point that will ultimately result in a historic moment. It may be a Boston Tea Party moment, but more likely it will be a Kristallnacht.

Something is terribly wrong with this picture and the anti-Israel picture....is America about to fall to her enemies? Texas has a RIGHT to protect our /their boarders from illegals entering illegally...just as Israel has the RIGHT to protect her nation. The federal government under this administration has FAILED to do its job of protecting the United States borders.....we have an extreamly treacherous president....he truly wants America to fall into the hands of his ilk, Bill Ayers, George Soros, fill in the blanks__________

The tipping point will happen when one illegal is shot by a militia. This will trigger a confrontation with the Obama Regime’s troops. When Governor Perry’s National Guard troops are in place, the option of shooting the illegals will be closed. The illegals will walk right in and challenge the troops to send them back.

So, what is way to discourage the illegals from walking in? I would have those apprehended be finger printed and photographed. I would warn them that if they are apprehended again in our country, they will be jailed for a minimum of ten years. If they are bringing in children, they would get fifteen years and lose custody of their children. When they got out of prison, they would get deported back to their country of origin. They would sign a paper saying they were instructed of the warning. Then, I would send them back across the border. If they were from another country other than Mexico, let Mexico deal with them. Mexico allowed them safe passage into their country. Mexico has to pay for their transport out.

Ok, I not understanding something.

We sit here and bitch and moan about the border situation and wonder when “somebody” will o something.

Well we have people trying to do something and 1/3rd of the comments are people worried about the press, false flags, and backlash?

Make up your minds! Either this is so serious that action is needed now, or you just like complaining about it.

"The tipping point will happen when one illegal is shot by a militia. This will trigger a confrontation with the Obama Regime's troops.

More likely, he would be arrested by the sheriff's dept., or the state police.

Worse than any of that, the militia guys could run into a group of Zetas carrying drug money south. Then they would be in a fire fight.

This one issue is the most important and treasonous of all of Obama’s actions in office. It could result in the complete destruction of America if the invasion is not repelled and the truth revealed as to his complicity:

He has made the border porous and invited an army ol illegal immigrants to suck the welfare teat completely dry. It is Cloward - Piven on full display. He doesn’t care that they will increase the populations of every major city and completely overwhelm welfare, housing, educational systems, and healthcare systems especially since most do not pay taxes. This is the goal; to overwhelm and baknrupt the system. It also places an undue burden on the white middle class worker who he will continue to harass by continuing to raise thir taxes, remove their disposable income, and decrease their quality of life until they will contemplate suicide. Jarrett said that there would br payback and stated they already had judges in thir pocket ready to go. I believe sh was lulling to Roberts who they had already blackmailed at that point.

The illegals multiply very quickly. The end goal is to completely overtake the white population and change the socio-economic makeup of the population forever. Once they begin multiply, forget about finding employment. Also forget about getting any government benefits if you are white. Walk into any Department of Human Services and look and the demographics and you’ll understand.

He couldn’t get enough people on board to get amnesty approved which was really for the purpose of executing the Cloward - Piven strategy. Now he has shown his true face and we know his true intentions. It is now time to say “NO MORE”. Impeach or leave office. RINOs are going to have a lot harder time getting elected now because we’re no longer listening to what they say but what they do. We might as well dismantle the Republican party and tell them to become Democrats

Border Patrol management is rebuking the “vigilantes” and you can be sure their rank-and-file’s in-boxes have been stuffed with memos and such.
And here’s a BP agent leaning in a vehicle and giving driving instructions to these old boys, and maybe arranging for a beer summit at the closest road house so the agents can tell some horror stories about the last several years trying to do a job they would be able to do, if it wasn’t designed to fail.

The powers that be want blood on the border. They want to kick start a war. Old Chinese curse someone said here recently, May you get what you seek.

There is no other way to stop this invasion. These people only respect power, power from the end of a gun. Either we stop them now or we take the mark. I aint taking the mark. God will understand.

Send the militias to Washington D.C. - There is the source of problem. Fumigate the rat’s nest in D.C., and we will no longer need militia on the border. Our BP agents will than have a fighting chance to do their jobs.

Frankly, we should declare war on Mexico, invade with overwhelming force so to crush the drug cartels, and then remove the corrupt Mexican government from power. Mexico is a genuine threat to America’s sovereignty and security - more so than Iraq, Al Qaeda, Isis and Iran combined.

But ... as we now have a treasonous, usurping, sodomite Muslim POS in charge of our military, a cabal of demented psychopaths running the Senate, and a harem of castrated eunuchs for representatives in the House ... we might as well just take down the flag, turn off the lights, and write our own epitaph.

I lived in Marin for 30 years and Bolinas was always famous for trying to avoid visits by tourists. They took down the road signs so that people couldn’t find b

Just wish our border was the same. We could post misdirection signs to illegals.
