Militia Linked to Nazi Party Leads Armed Patrols of Arizona Border

From the New York Daily News:

Nazis are patrolling the Arizona border.

With violence raging across the border in Mexico and Arizona’s anti-immigration legislation stirring controversy in the state, militias with neo-Nazi ties have taken up arms and are patrolling the border in search of “narco-terrorists” and illegal immigrants.

Jason “J.T.” Ready, who is tied to the white supremacist National Socialist Movement, has organized an armed militia to patrol the border and kill or capture immigrants trying to escape into the United States.

“We’re not going to sit around and wait for the government anymore,” Ready told the The Associated Press. “This is what our founding fathers did.”

But local authorities are concerned about Ready’s motives, particularly because of his ties to the National Socialist Movement, an organization devoted to “preservation of our European culture and heritage” and the “promotion of white separation.”

“These are explicit Nazis,” said Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center said about the group. “These are people who wear swastikas on their sleeves.”

The National Socialist Movement is also on the front lines of the border fight. The website, resplendent with Swastika symbols, features video of supremacy marches through Southern towns set to a soundtrack of skinhead punk rock.

From the National Socialist Movement’s “about” page:
The National Socialist Movement (aka NSM88) is the largest National Socialist Party operating in the United States of America today. We are the political party for every patriotic American.  We co-operate and work with many like minded white nationalist groups and many others which are either National Socialist or at least, racially aware of our European heritage.  The NSM, America’s National Socialist Party, is the largest and most active National Socialist party in America.
