After hearing how the pro-American group the United Constitution Patriots caught hundreds of illegal aliens invading our southern border in New Mexico earlier this week, the FBI moved immediately to arrest one of their alleged members on a gun charge.

From NBC News:

The FBI on Saturday arrested a man connected with an armed group that has been detaining migrants in New Mexico, the state attorney general’s office said.

Larry Mitchell Hopkins, 69, of Flora Vista, New Mexico, was arrested for allegedly being a felon in possession of a weapon, New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas and the FBI said....

... The Democrats in New Mexico and the liars in the media love saying these people have no "right" to protect our border.

In a word, anarcho-tyranny."...

US arrests rightwing militia member said to detain migrants, Yahoo, April 21, 2019:

The border vigilante movement is well-established, with the Southern Poverty Law Center documenting "questionable apprehensions of migrants by private citizens" from as far back as 1999....

In a statement Saturday, the Mexican foreign ministry expressed "deep concern" about such groups.
