The arrest of the armed militia leader in New Mexico now takes us to the next level. The armed militia self mobilized, then deployed to New Mexico where they detained/arrested illegals sneaking into the USA. The system response was to arrest the leader, and say the total chaos on the Southern Border is now official US Government policy. So much for Trump’s “build the wall,” mantra. So much for any serious attempt to gain control of our southern border. The die has been cast. The Rubicon has been crossed. The system, especially the corrupt, venal, and totally incompetent FBI has now arrayed itself against any citizen based attempt to do the job on the border. The security job which should be done by the border patrol is not being done. The FBI arrest tells Patriots plainly that the open border policy, despite what Trump says, is the real policy. Clearly, we can have no hope of any effective system response, which guarantees hordes of illegals will continue pouring over the border unchecked. We shall see how this plays out, but it looks to me Trump has yet again betrayed and abandoned us on the issue of illegal immigration. If the border patrol, and the federal government refuses to do their job, and the armed militias, which are doing the job the federals should, but aren’t doing, then nothing will change. Of course the insolent term of “right wing militia member,” is used by both the fake news media, and the FBI. Given the open treason done by the FBI, it is no surprise to me the FBI has done this. The usual demonization process the FBI has routinely used is now underway.

The FBI has arrested the leader of an armed right-wing militia group accused of illegally detaining migrants at the US-Mexico border.
Larry Mitchell Hopkins, 70, was arrested for illegal possession of a weapon on Saturday in Sunland Park, New Mexico.
Hopkins, who also goes by ‘Striker’, is the ‘national commander’ of United Constitutional Patriots (UCP). The small but well-armed group has had around six members camped out on a rotating basis near Sunland Park since February, standing guard over people who want to hand themselves in to border patrol and pursuing those who don’t.
New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas described Hopkins, who also goes by the name of ‘Striker,’ as a ‘dangerous felon who should not have weapons around children and families’.
‘Today’s arrest by the FBI indicates clearly that the rule of law should be in the hands of trained law enforcement officials, not armed vigilantes,’ Banderas added.
