'Patriots' group remains on the border

SUNLAND PARK – The armed group that was kicked out of its campsite near the border fence in New Mexico has a new base of operation and a new name, but its mission is the same: “Helping Border Patrol.”

“Nobody who’s been on the border left. There’s been no breakup. Everyone is still here,” said Jim Benvie, spokesman for the newly named Guardian Patriots.

During an interview on a patio outside a restaurant in this border town, Benvie reiterated that the group formerly known as the United Constitutional Patriots is not a militia, but “volunteer patriots” who are concerned about a crisis created by the influx of migrant families.

The organization attracted the attention of the American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico, which called on the state attorney general and governor to investigate whether its members were holding migrant parents and children at gunpoint.
