Bill’s Defeat Intensifies Arizona Militia Support

The recent defeat of legislation that would have created a citizens’ border group is driving up support for Arizona militias.

The Arizona Daily Star reports the state’s border-militia groups are seeing members becoming more motivated after plans for a state-sanctioned organization were struck down in the Legislature.

Leaders of volunteer patrols along the Arizona-Mexico border say there is an invasion of smugglers and illegal immigrants that needs to be stopped. Supporters say they are giving up on getting assistance from lawmakers.

The proposed bill would have established a 300-member, armed Arizona Special Missions Unit to guard the border at the governor’s request. A provision in the bill included screening volunteers to weed out violent extremists.

Critics of the bill say a border militia is extremist in nature.-[source]
