Illegal Immigration May Spark Border Clash

The is a group of individuals (private citizens) who are organizing an effort to go to the Arizona border with Mexico to confront the illegals crossing there. They claim that they will only identify the illegals, to then report them to authorities. I'm not so sure that is worthwhile, as the border in that area is a virtual sieve. More illegals cross in that area than in California, Texas and New Mexico combined. In addition the rate of violence, especially against border patrol agents has increased dramatically. In my mind the chances of this effort by "The Minuteman Project" as they call themselves staying peaceful is very slim.

But that's not necessarily a bad thing. Since the group is encouraging news organizations to watch and report events as they transpire, the entire world will see when things get out of hand. This will force President Bush's hand, I hope. Finishing the barriers and bringing the National Guard to the border are the real way to stop the influx of illegals. Soon that should become quite obvious.

I'll be back
