The anti-immigration movement in southern U.S. states is an undercover political operation. The aim is to draw people disenchanted with the Washington political elite into a classic false opposition operation. Keeps 'em buzy too.
"Hundreds of anti-immigrant activists were gathering in Tombstone, Arizona, yesterday to begin a month-long unofficial patrol of the border with Mexico. To greet them, hundreds of immigrants' rights activists planned to travel to the desert of Arizona from across the southern US.
The Minuteman Project, which is organising the volunteer patrols, is being run from the offices of the Tombstone Tumbleweed newspaper. Many of the volunteers are expected to be armed.
