The minutemen are a group of individuals who are volenteering there time and patroling the Mexican border. If they see anybody sneaking over the border they call the border patrol and turn them in. They have all ready caught some drug runners and turned them in. They don't carry any guns, just a phone and a flashlight. There aren't enough agents to patrol the border. They receive no pay for this,like I say it is strictly volenteer. Some of the agents like them and some don't. They think that they will get in the way and will cause somone to get killed. I personaly am all for it. They have already captured a lot of illegals and even drug runners. Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

If they don't carry guns. It's fine by me. They should patrol by boat the coast of Florida too.

Yeah, if they're not killing anyone, I don't see the harm.

Good thing I didn't run into them on my way here or there would have been some trouble.

I think it's a great thing. They only reason I can think agents not wanting help like this is that either that they are on the take and don't want it messed with, or they don't want to be bothered to actaully do their job. I suspect the later.

Let's start on the Canucks too. We have enough mediocre comedians as it is.

I think they stopped doing this. One of the news shows said their 15 minutes of minutemen fame was over.

No maozedong, they are still doing it and now some of them are caring guns for self protecton. I am all for it.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 5/11/05 - 4:01:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm all for it. We need as many people to patrol our borders as we can possibly get. The fact that they're willing to do it for no money is fantastic.

So long as they don't start suing if they get injured or shot it seems ok.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 5/12/05 - 1:23:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
I totally agree with what they are doing and hopefully they will show politicians that they can't keep ignoring what people want.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 5/23/05 - 1:23:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. I completely agree with it!

It's about frickin' time we had some extra patrol going on at that blasted border ..... Hoorah for them.

I don't see anything wrong in volunteering for this. I mean, it may even save lives because it prevents some people from going too far and dying of starvation/dehydration.

I don't see anything wrong with it.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 6/9/05 - 10:55:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Its a good idea, as long as they are honest and not helping them cross

YAY first no...just let the mexicans into your country...I mean you guys are moving to Mexico and taking their land and may I mention going there illegally...Oh yeah good argument cause I saw it on CNN so if you go there you cant be hypocrites and not let them in to your country.

I never liked that idea. It's bad enough the Border Patrol officers that are there are not able to capture all the illegal aliens that get across the border. Now, we have a group of untrained volunteers showing up the trained officers? How bad must a Border Patrol officer feel? If I were one of them, I'd seriously think about quitting because pretty much all respect from Americans and illegals would be lost. I think if the Minutemen want to help patrol the border, they should do it the right way and become Border Patrol officers. The Minutemen should be working alongside the existing officers, not competing against them.

Sure, if they have a good cause.
