the Minuteman Project are off to a good start with careful screening
of volunteers and excellent security measures at the home base,

is off to a good start," Spencer said.

to the Arizona

entrant in distress late Friday. The incident was the first documented
encounter between the volunteers and Mexican nationals sneaking
