Militia detains migrants at gunpoint along the US-Mexico border
A video has emerged of armed right-wing militia members stopping over 300 migrants as they cross the Mexico border into the US state of New Mexico. The militia supports President Donald Trump's plan for a border wall. The video, recorded by group member Jim Benvie on 16 April, shows a large group of migrants who were said to have just crossed the border near Sunland Park, New Mexico, being detained by the armed vigilantes. Before Border Patrol agents arrive to take custody of the migrants, a woman narrating the video tells a man who appears to be a militia member "Don't aim the gun" in the direction of the families. US Customs and Border Protection has previously said they are opposed to civilians patrolling the border in search of illegal crossers.
