Almost 2 weeks later, Shawna Forde, Jason Bush, and
Albert Gaxiola were arrested and charged with the murders.
While this has been reported in
There have been 4 years of minuteman patrols with no
crimes committed, and now the Open Borders Lobby’s media proclaims that
they were right all along about the Minutemen being vigilantes!
If a trial reveals there were criminals amongst us, it doesn’t
negate the value of the services provided to
Every year 10,000 Americans die by the hands of illegal aliens. Yet we don’t see the kind of circus from the media that we are seeing around the killings in Arivaca. Where’s the outrage over the needless deaths of all those Americans? Why is the media focusing a searing laser beam of attention on an American Caucasian woman, Shawna Forde, when they won’t even acknowledge it as a “hate crime” when an illegal alien kills an American?
As a feminist, I can’t help but wonder why Shawna Forde has been singled out for an exceptional amount of slander from the media. Could it be because she is a woman in a man’s world doing men’s work, patrolling the border? I really wonder how far women have come in their quest for equality, considering the venom the media has poured out. In fact, it is the extreme Left-wing press, a press which pretends to be on the side of women and “oppressed minorities,” which has been most vicious. The media have made it their mission to convict her before she has even had a trial!
Freedom of the press doesn’t mean the right to lie,
or to convict someone who is legally presumed innocent before a trial
which might be months away! Does

The position of Border Guardians is this: we support the rule of Constitutional law for everyone, regardless of their political affiliations.
We cannot support any form of terrorism or criminal activities for any purpose, even when the perpetrator is our own government! We do support the existence and lawful actions of Constitutional militias “being necessary to the security of a free state” as described in the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights, whether they be Minutemen, or neighborhood watch groups formed during a civil crisis or natural disaster. Deprivation of civil rights while under color of law, murder, theft, and terrorist acts constitute unlawful and immoral actions. Real militias do not perform home invasions and shoot the occupants. The purpose of the militia is defensive--to defend the neighborhood, the state, and the country. We will stand only with those who are righteous, and cast out those who are evil.
We will withhold judgment until the public trial is
completed, and we suggest to everyone else in the movement that they do
the same. Every American is
entitled to a fair trial, and it is a certainty that no Minuteman will get
a fair trial in
