Citizens to Patrol Arizona-Mexico Border

On earlier posts I have warned that if governments are seen as unwilling or unable to enforce the law and keep order then concerned citizens will do so themselves as they see fit. Nature abhors a vacuum and all that.

I was specifically speaking about European governments' ineptitude or impotentence regarding Islamists. Now a similar thing is happening here. A group of volunteers will mass on the US-Mexico border in April to draw attention to the invasion of illegal aliens from the South. Their idea is to demonstrate that the border could be secured through use of greater man power. More boots on the ground, so to speak. They will not confront the illegal aliens. They only plan to document and report the illegal crossings.

I find it remarkable that this gets so little attention. The feds had better do something about this sooner rather than later. Eventually people like these volunteers will do more than document and report and the government will have to step in. A stitch in time saves nine my grandmother used to say.
