Larry Mitchell Hopkins, a 69 year old man that is the national commander of the United Constitutional Patriots, has been arrested by the FBI. What is the United Constitutional Patriots?
It’s a small militia compromised of mostly veterans and former police officers. Just this week they stopped 200 illegal immigrants coming across the border. They detain them, call up U.S. Customs and Border Protection and turn them over. So why is the national commander being arrested? A federal complaint charging him with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.
We are here to uphold the Constitution of The United States of America. We uphold this cause against all enemies both foreign and domestic which shall infringe upon the rights of the citizens given by the Constitution. We are here to serve in time of need at the local and state level and if necessary for our country.
The law states that: Any two or more persons, whether with or without uniform, who associate, assemble or congregate together by or under any name in a military capacity for the purpose of drilling, parading or marching at any time or place or otherwise take up or bear arms in any such capacity without authority of the Governor, must, on conviction, be fined not more than $1,000.00. This section does not apply to any school or college where military training and instruction is given under the provisions of state or federal laws. We are covered under the 501C3 Home of the 5th.
So felons having guns and detaining people… not good. But this is what happens when nobody but the president is trying to fix the border issue and congress does nothing but stroke it’s own ego, but I’ll let Kellyanne Conway prove that (skip to 1:30).
Even Otero County has declared it’s own state of emergency. I’m not here to make a judgement call about if the militia were in the right or not. But when the government won’t stop criminals, the citizens will. And let’s not fool ourselves, people crossing the border into our country (without going through a port of entry) is ILLEGAL. I understand these people need help, but rushing the border and becoming an “undocumented citizen” is just a fancy term for breaking the law to get in. But hey, if congress won’t help with the law, I bet you are going to see more militias pop up. But hey, in clown world clowns run the place.
