Reporter Ken Lippenstein posted a field case report from late April where a group of militia members "patrolling" the border captured 200 migrants at gunpoint.
Klippenstein posted the case report to his Twitter page, highlighting the comments from one militia member about what they should be doing with migrants on the border.
“Why are we...not lining them up and shooting them?" the militia member asked his fellow gunmen. "We have to go back to Hitler days and put them all in a gas chamber."
Militias rushed to the U.S.-Mexico border to "help" border patrol agents handle the invasion President Donald Trump claimed was happening. Actual Border Patrol Officers have been asking the men to leave. At least one leader was arrested and held on gun charges last month.
