now this is intresting wonder how this will turn out Constitutionaly for them.
The militia, known as the United Constitutional Patriots, this week detained a group of 200 asylum-seekers near Sunland Park, New Mexico. According to the Times, a video from one recent encounter shows “exhausted looking migrant families blinking in the darkness in the glare of what appear to be the militia’s spotlights” and, in another video, “kneeling on the ground and embracing one another” as Border Patrol agents arrived, apparently after members of the militia had already been pointing firearms at them.
As Slate writer Mark Joseph Stern pointed out on Twitter, a civilian militia has no power to arrest migrants, and therefore its actions are more similar to kidnapping and false imprisonment than a lawful detainment. Families of migrants are legally allowed to request asylum, making the threatened use of force and firearms all the more unjustifiable.
