Minutemen Cut Illegal Alien Traffic
Waiting for Them to Leave

Reports indicate Minutemen are slowing traffic across the Arizona/Mexico border.
Los Angeles Times -- April 4
    "This vast desert border just west of Douglas, Ariz., is the busiest illegal crossing point in the nation. Enriquez said more than 400 people a day walk these harsh trails. But news of the Minutemen's arrival, combined with media hype in Mexico, has cut the traffic to a few dozen a day.
    "Some smugglers have refused to take clients to the border area until the activists leave. Others are directing them elsewhere, as far east as El Paso, Texas. An air of fear and indignation hangs over this side of the border, where misinformation is rife."
