KVIA TV, El Paso
One of the top law enforcement officials
in West Texas welcomes a controversial border watch group. The
mission of the Minuteman Project is to work with the Border Patrol
to catch illegal immigrants and El Paso County Sheriff Leo Samaniego
supports their mission.
At a news conference Monday morning,
the El Paso County Sheriff said securing the border is the first
step in Homeland Security and the Minuteman Project should be
seen as an "expanded neighborhood watch program."
