Militia leader, who detained migrants, arrested for allegedly telling FBI militia was training to kill Obama/Clinton/Soros

Recommended Posts




The leader of a militia group who's been detaining migrants near the U.S.-Mexico border allegedly told the FBI his militia was training to assassinate former President Obama, Hillary Clinton and Democratic donor George Soros. Larry Hopkins, head of the United Constitutional Patriots, is charged with possession a firearm as a felon and could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted. Hopkins appeared before a federal judge Monday.


According to prosecutors, he has three felony convictions in Michigan and Oregon, including for impersonating a police officer, and nine guns were seized from his home back in 2017, reports CBS News' Mireya Villarreal. 


Videos from the group show militia members stopping migrants, sometimes at gunpoint, near the border in New Mexico. The United Constitutional Patriots said they are simply doing their part to enforce U.S. immigration laws. In 60 days, they claim they've captured about 5,600 migrants who illegally entered the country.


But to human rights activists, they're a group of gun-toting vigilantes. Peter Simonson, executive director of the ACLU of New Mexico, worries migrants are being subjected to violence and abuse not seen on video.


I'm surprised since he looks like a wonderful person.
