A Chilling Police Report on the Civilian Militia at the Border Was Just Released and the Details are Extremely Disturbing

A member of a civilian border militia that calls themselves the United Constitutional Patriots said 'We have to go back to Hitler days" and place migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in a "gas chamber" according to an April 24 police report containing allegations by Steven Brant, a former member of the group.

“Why are we just apprehending them and not lining them up and shooting them,” Armando Gonzalez, a member of the militia, allegedly said. “We have to go back to Hitler days and put them all in a gas chamber."

Brant contacted the Sunland Park Police Department and reported "terroristic threats" made by the group. He says he went by the codename “Viper" and that Gonzalez handed him "a handgun and ran to his vehicle and grabbed an AR-15" after observing several people crossing the border. He then gave Brant back his gun and told him to put his weapons away. It was then when Gonzalez became upset and made the "Hitler" and "gas chamber" comments.

The police report was obtained by The Young Turks following a public records request from reporter Ken Klippenstein.

The news here is largely perceived as a consequence of President Donald Trump's incendiary rhetoric against migrants, which has been magnified by his calls for the construction of a border wall at our nation's southern border.

The United Constitutional Patriots' latest appearance in the news comes just three weeks after the American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico condemned them for kidnapping asylum seekers at gunpoint.

“We cannot allow racist and armed vigilantes to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum," the ACLU said at the time.

The Southern Poverty Law Center notes that UCP faces "an uncertain future" after its leader, Larry Hopkins, was arrested on criminal charges "related to [his] firearm possession." UCP's accounts have also been suspended by PayPal, GoFundMe and Cash App.

The NBPC—a union organization not part of the federal agency—is "the exclusive representative of approximately 18,000 Border Patrol Agents and support personnel assigned to the U.S. Border Patrol."

But in a recent tweet, Baldwin reminded his followers that Trump's ascent and increasing corruption is no laughing matter.

Attorney General William Barr criticized President Donald Trump's tweets about Justice Department prosecutors' sentencing recommendation for Trump ally Roger Stone.

Barr—who overrode the recommendation after Trump railed against it on Twitter—said Trump's tweets made it impossible to do his job, though some people believe his words weren't to rein in Trump, but to mitigate public outrage.

Fox Host Lou Dobbs is not one of those people.

Americans across the country were furious when President Donald Trump fired Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman after Trump was acquitted in his impeachment trial by the Republican Senate.

Vindman complied with a congressional subpoena to testify before the House committee overseeing Trump's impeachment inquiry last year.

The career military official and Purple Heart recipient was escorted out by security along with his twin brother, an NSC official who played no part in the impeachment proceedings.

People cried foul earlier this week when the Justice Department overrode four career prosecutors to recommend a reduced sentence for former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone.

The Department's decision came only a day after Trump railed against the prosecutors' recommendation on Twitter, leading many to believe the Department reduced the sentence recommendation because the President interceded on his ally's behalf.

All four prosecutors on the case resigned in response to the change.
