In the middle of the night Tuesday, United Constitutional Patriots, an armed civilian group patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border in the Sunland Park area, detained more than 300 migrants who illegally crossed the border.
The group, who claim they are at the border to “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America,” is patrolling the desert near Sunland Park, New Mexico, searching for migrants.

In a video live-streamed April 16 on Facebook by one of the United Constitutional Patriots’ members, the group is seen detaining a group of about 300 migrants, including children. The video starts in the middle of the incident with U.S. Border Patrol vehicle and agents already at the scene.
In the video, the member repeatedly says, “This is an invasion … and it is never, never-ending” referring to the large number of Central American migrants crossing into the U.S. to seek asylum.
