‘Patriots’ Form Human Chain To Stop The Undocumented
So-called “patriots” and militia members (can they be the same?) have converged on Loredo, TX to form a human chain to stop those who wish to cross the border.
This will continue for days and weeks to come” and spread “to other points” along the U.S.-Mexico frontier, Barbie Rogers, founder of the Patriots Information Hotline, said in a telephone interview from Laredo.
Rogers declined to give an exact head count beyond “more than 50 people” or reveal whether participants are armed, citing worries about their security.
But she said blockaders will follow the same rules of engagement as protesters in an April standoff between federal officials and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy.
“Just like at the Bundy ranch, there will be no patriot out there on that line that will fire first,” Rogers said.
Her website on Wednesday posted a “call to ACTION for all Militia, III%ers, Oathkeepers, and Patriotic support personnel.”
