Minutemen, I don't like them.

Ya know, these people (because they aren't all men) really piss me the fuck off. Especially now that they've taken upon themselves to erect a fence at the Arizona border.

The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps plans to install a combination of barbed wire, razor wire, and in some spots, steel rail barriers along the 10-mile stretch of private land in southeastern Arizona.
Isn't it nice to have people so involved in our nation's border patrol when so many already here are starving and working for shitty wages? How about the mom's and/or dad's who have left their families behind in search of a better life?

Isn't their name, Minuteman, telling, especially when they have a female voice as their spokesperson?
Minuteman spokeswoman Connie Hair said it would take up to three weeks to build the estimated $100,000 fence. So far, the group has raised $380,000 for more border fences, she said.
Can there be anymore testosterone in the group?
"They're just anti-illegal," said Doty. "The Minutemen walk the extra mile to avoid being anti-immigrant and that's what we like about the organization and what got us interested."
No, it appears they are anti-Mexican/Hispanic/Latinos since they seem to be equating immigrants with only Mexicans/Hispanics/Latinos even though there are 2 rather large oceans that immigrants cross to get here. And yes, sometimes they are illegal, too.
