I am so sick of hearing that we are going to offend the hispanic population. Just try living in Yakima!! These are not law abiding citizens sneaking in here. You people would freak out if you knew just how much they have exploited every system we have in place from social security to public assistance. I once knew an illegal alien came here murdered someone did 10 yrs in Walla Walla was deported was back in 3 days, stopped in CA bought a new idenity came to Bellingham and got arrested and was in jail for 3 months...they did not even catch the fact he was not who he said he was. And that's only one story of so many. Oh yea, he's back in prision, due to get out this year and be deported, but he's not worried.

Your post is full of generalizations and racist undertones. Just because a person is hispanic and immigrates here doesn't mean that they are going to promote criminal activity.

it's really sad how ass backwards Washington is.

Not to mention the fact, that the articles topic involves the border with Canada not Mexico.

So please start thinking, before you open your mouth.

It is just as important to protect our northern border as it is our southern and perhaps more important.

I understand Pam's frustration and I don't doubt her story, but a softening in her tone might make her posting easier to read for some.

Every country on earth should be able to decide who enters and who leaves.

Cana, if you think the minutemen are just sitting in cars, you are mistaken.

A small group of unarmed citizens watching a border shouldn't offend anyone, unless they are simply against borders altogether, and in that case, becoming our 51st state might have great appeal.

Thanks for the offer Bismark, but unless you want to learn to speak Canadian let's leave the border inplace.

So to clarify the roll of the minutemen.
Are they independed of, or do they have an affiliation with the local authority ie neighbourhood block watch.

Do the minutemen have contact with Canadian authorities, or similar thinking Canadians worried about illegal cross-border travel.

How were you able to track this person? Such a lie. You just made this up. What a good story to make people believe how immigrants are dangerous.
