Border Patrol Sells Out Minutemen To Mexico

There's been a lot of posting about the U.S. Border Patrol alerting the Mexican government to the locations of civilian border patrol groups. Michelle Malkin makes an excellent point when she says, "If the ACLU weren't so busy demonizing the Minutemen, you would think they might be on the side of law-abiding Americans being surveilled by their government." Not only that Michelle, but what could be more eregious than the lawful travel and location of our citizens being reported to a foreign government? The ACLU should be absolutely livid if they actually believed in what they say.

The ACLU says, "Restrictions on Americans' freedom to travel to Cuba violate the Constitution." Well, what about our right to travel to the border without be spied on and reported to a foreign government.

The ACLU is afraid of CCTV surveillance because it can "mark innocent people for tracking solely on the basis of racial, gender or other characteristics." Isn't the Border Patrol tracking the Minutemen because of who they are? It's a form of racial profiling, targeting Americans and reporting their legal, private activities to a foreign government.

The absolute hypocrisy of the Federal Government and the ACLU is astounding.
