Here is a story from World Net Daily on the events.
snagging 1st illegals
Private citizens patrolling border area spot aliens even before official start
"You observe them, report them and get out of the way," Mike McGarry, a spokesman for the project, told the wire service.
Another illegal immigrant was taken into custody Friday after strolling into a camp of the Minutemen.
"He inadvertently wandered into the hornets' nest," Minuteman spokesman Fred Elbel told Reuters.
"But it turned out to be his lucky day," he added. "He was tired and dehydrated and we gave him medical attention, food and drink before handing him over to the Border Patrol."
The Guatemalan man headed for a Bible college in Palominas, Ariz., not knowing it was a camp for the citizen patrollers.
Again, "vigilantes?" This seems more like a neighborhood watch, on a much larger scale. I have to disagree with the term vigilantes. One only needs to refer to the words of George Felos to see this is not true. I mean, HOW DARE THEY! Food and water? Do they not know how BEAUTIFUL AND PEACEFUL it is to be thirsty and hungry. It's NATURAL! Ask Terri Schiavo.....er... I mean Felos... I mean have you heard about what is like to live in Mexico? Who would "want to live that way?"
Case and point:
These citizen patrollers are setting up camp at a BIBLE COLLEGE, and giving people food and water. It's very clear. These are NOT vigilantes.
