Private Militias Supplement US Border Patrol’s Work

When the US Border Patrol can’t stop migrants from crossing into the country from Mexico, private groups take the law into their own hands. One such organization, Arizona Border Recon, is one of the many so-called “militias” that patrol the border to conduct reconnaissance and prevent more crossings. Claiming the media misrepresents their views and actions, these militias often see themselves differently than the general public. The leader of Arizona Border Recon spoke to RT’s Ameera David to try and set the record straight.
