Minutemen receive criticism, praise

A few months ago the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps received national media exposure for their efforts to stem the tide of illegal immigrants across the U.S./Mexico border. They're back and it's a good thing.

The Minuteman Project "is launching a monthlong vigil along America's northern border this weekend, expanding its operations to demand heightened security at U.S. borders ... Although the number of arrests at the southwestern border dwarfs those to the north — well over 1 million versus about 12,000 annually — Minuteman members say that the Canadian border, which at 5,525 miles is almost three times the length of the Mexican border, is vulnerable to terrorists and criminals."
