Minutemen To Take Up Positions On Canada - US Border
PITTSBURG, N.H. -- A group that has patrolled for illegal immigrants along the United States borders with Mexico and parts of Canada is planning to extended operations in New Hampshire.
Organizers say the Minuteman Civil Defence Corps wants to patrol starting this weekend, but it needs more volunteers and contributions. Ron Oplinus, director of the state chapter, says the Minutemen do not welcome vigilantes or racists, although some members carry guns, which they are instructed to keep holstered.
He says the state chapter was established a year ago and has 36 members who have visited the Canadian border to establish an operating post.
