Everything’s bigger in Texas, including the @ssholes. That’s why we’ve got right-wing hatriot militias threatening to block ports of entry in the Rio Grande Valley area on September 20 … to protect us “real Americans” from the hordes of marauding Central American children, gardeners, nannies, and dishwashers swarming our borders.
The DC Clothesline reports the gun-toting, right-wing hatriot militia group “Secure Our border – Laredo” is loaded for coyote, and recruiting “volunteers” to “help protect” local property owners and other residents from “drug cartels and gang members,” as well as “illegal” immigrants.
And they’re not the only ones… Other groups intent on “securing our border” from grape pickers and supposedly disease-ridden Central American children include the Oathkeepers, Three Percenters and Patriots. Whew! This writer feels safer already!
KGRV Channel 5 adds that these crazed, overly-weaponized maniacs specifically plan to block traffic on bridges crossing the Rio Grande between the U.S. and Mexico. And those immigrant-loving liberals aren’t the only ones who find this news disturbing.
Law enforcement officials and city leaders from across the Rio Grande Valley are preparing for what they say could result in tense moments or violence.
Since Starr County has three international bridges (at Rio Grande City, Roma and Falcon Dam.) that may soon be swarming with heavily-armed right-wing hatriot militias, they held a meeting on Thursday:
In Starr County, international bridge authorities met with Customs and Border Protection officials Thursday. Their goal was to discuss the potential problem and find a plan of action.
Rio Grande City Mayor Ruben Villarreal told KGRV that it’s one thing for these militia members to voice their opinions, it’s another for them to roam the borders like gangs of old-West vigilantes.
And it’s not just a matter of public safety, blocking the bridges and interfering with day-to-day commerce could cost the economy hundreds of millions of dollars.
“If they’re here to block traffic, to be a hindrance between traffic and the port of entry, that causes a problem. It’s a huge safety issue. […] A port of entry is not just a port of entry for people; it’s also a port of entry for commerce. There are hundreds of millions of dollars that transact at the ports of entry. If their intent is to cause a disruption at a port of entry, it’s not only a matter of people, it’s a matter of commerce as well”
Although Villareal says he’s confident in local, state, and federal agencies’ “excellent” communications and is “100 percent sure” the National Guard, Department of Public Safety, Border Patrol and local law enforcement can work together to handle whatever happens, he still admits he feels nervous about these right-wing hatriot militias running around with their guns.
“I’m not going to lie to you; it’s going to make us nervous. We’re not used to seeing firearms being openly displayed.”
“We’ve never dealt with militia here in Starr County. We don’t know what their temperament is or their personality might be. I can tell you that knowing that they might be here … helps us prepare for what ever may come.”
