Amnesty. For the regular U.S. citizen who lives on or near the Southern Border with Mexico, this is not just the fodder for Sunday morning news shows and talk radio. This is something they live with. Chuckie Schumer says 15,000 people cross the border illegally every day. That number is only going to increase as the possibility of a new Amnesty grows brighter – every time the Obama Administration announces it is abandoning the “virtual fence” and cutting funding for Border Patrol and INS operations, or Los Angeles immigrant rights’ groups file lawsuits forcing requests that police “ease up” on nationality checks on arrested suspects, the message is clear: “Welcome.” Well, the White House and the Democratic Party may be ready to roll over on the sovereignty of our country, but some regular, law abiding Americans aren’t. Every year they’ve see less help from the U.S. Government and less public will to fight the problem. So they’ve taken it upon themselves. Sixty-five miles East of San Diego California, situated on an active smuggling route just two miles from the Mexican Border, is a facility known as “Camp Vigilance.” Originally founded by the Minutemen political action group as a rallying point for constitutionalists, this property is now also home to the BPAUX – Border Patrol Auxiliary – an armed, non-political, all volunteer “force multiplier” consisting of anyone willing to sign on, adhere to state and federal law and the group’s operational rules, and do their time in the rocky hills on our side of the line. BPAUX run patrols day and night, detaining illegal border crossers and holding them until the “real” Border Patrol can be come in and round them up. Auxiliary officers watch the twenty-mile stretch of Border fence using thermal and night vision optics that are, like their uniforms and sidearms, personally paid for. They don’t shoot illegal immigrants. They do not want members who even consider such action. It’s Camp Vigilance, not Camp “Violence.” And they couldn’t shoot, even if they were attacked, because the politicians in San Diego County have made these foreign lawbreakers as protected as the California condor. It is against the law to take action against illegals even if they are on your property or in your home.
