A vigilante group in Texas is joining efforts with Border Patrol agents to boost border security.
A group called ‘Patriot Patrollers’ said they plan to help Border Patrol agents prevent illegal crossings across the Mexican border.
According to militia members, their goal is to protect their property from crime and violence brought by some illegal aliens and human smugglers.
The group said they don’t believe the border is secure enough and requires additional attention.
“You got people coming in to this country illegally, you are breaking our laws, you are breaking our rules — that’s international rules and laws that you are breaking at that point, and so that’s why we are here on this border for, is to push back the law breakers and keep them on their side so they will go around to our port of entries,” stated a member of the group.
The ‘Patriot Patrollers’ went on to say illegal arrivals impede legal border crossings between the U.S. and Mexico.
