Put Families of Congress Down on the Mexican Border and Then Let's See What Happens! - Serving as a Minuteman is an eye opener and it's not a pretty picture.

Here's a first hand account from a one of those "Vigilantes" who volunteered as a Minuteman in Arizona. I think that all the politicians who are either against or equivocate about protecting the US borders should have to have their families live ON THE BORDER and then let's just see how their tune changes. Here's a few annecdotes from this man:

I spoke with Belinda, a single mother who allowed us to use her home and yard for observation. Every day about 5:30 p.m., as she came home from work with her young daughter, she was confronted by a group of smugglers making a drop to a car parked in her driveway.

Out of fear for her safety, Belinda began carrying a handgun and routinely cleared her own home before bringing her daughter in for the evening. She thanked us profusely for helping her to reclaim her yard, and every night she fed us a hot meal.
Carol says this happens every night — all night long. The difference is that neighbors in the area have lost the energy to be out in the desert every
night reporting smugglers. Sometimes they're even too tired to get out of bed
and make a call to Border Patrol based on their barking dogs.

It's no way to live. This courageous woman, who brought us food and coffee for protecting her neighborhood, packs a revolver because a mother and daughter were recently assaulted by an illegal alien while they waited for a school bus in her neighborhood in Hereford. Another family related to me that illegal aliens regularly try to get on the school bus in Naco.
