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.”

    Umm….didn’t a couple of those “patriots” kill 3 people in Las Vegas?

    Undocumented = illegal = criminal

      Good thing the native Americans didn’t think that way back in the 17th century.

    Don’t these people have jobs and families? Or do they happen to have nothing to do but cause trouble?

      This maybe their 4th of July vacating reenactment where the only thing crossing their mind is to kill any of America’s original settlers. RIP Brisenia Flores, her father & too many others murdered by xenophobic armed & dangerous border vigilantes.

      To ask the question…

    According to Wikipedia, that’s 1,954 mi (3145 km).
    Figure30′ per, so as to keep them within sight and sound of each other,
    That’s ‘prox 343,904 “patriots”, give or take a few for geological adjustments, etc.
    I say “fine”
    Let ’em; I’ve often found that keeping children busy is infinitely easier than listening to them whine.

    I had to google to find out what III%er means.

    In a nutshell, they are just another in a long line of right wingers who loves them some democracy, except when their candidate loses the election.

    Wow! It’s like “Hands Across America” except for small minded, short sighted haters. They should rename it “Der Cummin’ ta Take Our Yobs!”

    It’s “American Spring” on the border.

      Great minds, Bill.

    Days and weeks to come, eh? Yep, ask OAS how that worked out.
