La Shawn Barber’s interview
of John Smallberries, Minuteman Project Volunteer, continues today. Mr. Smallberries states,
Two things to consider:
1) I laugh when folks call this a “racial” issue – i.e. we must be racists because we are trying to keep Mexicans out. Let me assure your readers – if the only folks drifting across the border were Mexican migrant workers – I’d be in Hawaii this April – not Arizona. The average Mexican is coming over the border to escape the deplorable conditions in their own country – they don’t have an ounce of malice in them, and they are not a threat to our security, in and of themselves.
2) Remember – for every person that is caught, the Border Patrol estimates 2 -3 get past them into the interior. You can bet that people who are serious about doing us harm are NOT using the $500 guides, they are paying top dollar and going in with the dope loads, which are seldom caught. Who are these people? Shouldn’t we be stopping them? Does anyone else think this is really scary when people from literally anywhere can simply walk into the USA, carrying whatever they please?
La Shawn also links to Gringo Unleashed’s report Radio Fórmula: the Minuteman Project is out to kill undocumented immigrants. When I say that the Spanish-language media’s misreporting on the story, I’m not joking.
Meanwhile, here’s an update on the arrests of the Mara Salvatrucha/MS-13 gang:
Washington, DC: 35 in Area Charged in U.S. Gang Sweep
In the Washington area, federal agents brought immigration or customs charges against 22 alleged MS-13 members from Northern Virginia, three from the District and 10 from the Maryland suburbs and Baltimore area, officials said
About 20 members of the gang, also known as MS-13, have been arrested in South Florida in recent months — including four for picking fights at Miami’s Calle Ocho festival on Sunday.
