i don't think they have shown up yet. though i think they are as largely seen as a racist vigilante group hiding behind patriotism. there is a story about the ex-head of the texas minutemen quitting because the group wasover run with racists. there is some concern over them being a little too trigger happy, after a report surfaced that the minutemen threatened to shoot unarmed protesters in california. and the whole thing seems scarily similiar to the klan border watch of the 80's. even those who don't think thay have any racist ties see them as outsiders that have no idea of what it is like to live and work on the border. how they expect to help out border partol agents who do this everyday is a mystery. regardless of if they are racist or not, i don't think they will have much impact on anything in this town. they will show up and leave, and we will hardly notice.
whoa, that was off topic wasn't it.
