Subject: J J's Campo Line Update (Sit-Rep 4-17-06
Did a Friday night, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday until 1:00PM tour of duty on the Campo Line. Friday night and Saturday poured rain and heavy fog at times. Cold and wet was the order of the day and night. I slept in the front of my truck (miserably) with a pillow crammed against the passenger's side door. I didn't weant to get in the back and get mud all over everything. We had about 15 guys "on the line" most of Saturday, but it was real miserable.
Saturday afternoon we were joined by "The first woman in America to burn the Mexican flag" ( Laine Lawless). When asked what "handle" she wanted for a call sign, she replied without hesitation,"TORCH!" Eat your heart out, Cindy Lou... For those of you who don't know, Laine is a member of Border Guardians, the group that burned several Mexican Flags in Tucson, at the Mexican Consulate and at a large Mexican demonstration going on in Tucson at the time. She arrived with bullet proof vest, 12 gauge pump shot gun, and large bore pistol of unknown size, dressed in full set of BDU's of desert cammy color!... Damn, that's more artillery than any of us "old timers" were packing! She definitely came prepared! Saturday I gave her a tour of the line, including a "pilgrimage" up to see "Kingfish" up in his "Eagle's Nest." Several pictures were taken up there, but not by me unfortunately, but Laine took several. I hope she'll post some of them.
Saturday I got appointed by default to lead a Chinese Film Crew around, and show them the line, the drug cartel's distribution center, some of the guys, and the Non-existent "Border Fence"! Boy, were they impressed with the "POREOUS" fence. Late in the afternoon I overheard an operation going on a few miles away involving the B.P.'s chasing a fair sized group of illegals near highway 94, about three or four miles away. They wanted to film it, and came back about an hour or so later, very well pleased. They said they got to film the chopper chasing the aliens, and six of them being handcuffed and put into the B.P. paddy wagons! They said that they had gotten much more film shot than they had planned on. They work for MSNBC in China (RED), as well as Taiwan. The female was from Taiwan, just naturalized this February, and the little guy was from Red China! More people will see this interview than any other MM article in the world, as their audience is the biggest in the Orient. I kinda always had a "hankerin" to be a Star. Just never knew it would be a Red Star! I could end up being the "stereotype" of an American Minuteman on the Border! I guess all those Billions of Chinese are going to know what I look like, now... Oh well...
By Sat. night the rain had stopped, but dense fog was coming and going, and it was damp and cold. I put "Torch" with a MM named Jim together in her car at a heavy infiltration point known as the "Oaks". It is close to an area where the fence is being worked on by the Corps of Engineers, and three dirt roads on the Mex side all converge here. To make matters worse, there is a large new culvert there that the illegals can crawl their way through, and into the good old USA! Slim Jim and Fiancee, and a Soldier friend of Jim's were there the night before, and did an excellent job of guarding it all night. (Friday) On Sat. night Torch and Jim got cold, and bored, and called it a night around 10:00PM.
Up the line to the west, (almost in front of "Little Dog's position) a large group of illegals had been spotted by "Jeffe" and "Mad Max." They had been doing a follow up foot patrol along the fence in response to an alert by Little Dog's dog, who is very adept at spotting the illegals. They heard them on the other side of the fence, and were trying to keep track of where they were headed. By then, I had responded, as I was one of the mobile units. Soon after arriving, I called out to them on my bullhorn, and soon had them engaged in conversation. Of course they wanted one of the jobs no American wants, and I think they also were coming for the "Amnestia" that Bush and Fox have promised to them. They were none too happy to hear that there was to be no amnesty, Mexicans were unable to find work, that were already here, and that we were here to make sure that they didn't get through. We all believed these particular Mexicans were a very determined bunch, (most of them sounded drunk) and were going to try to enter anyway, sooner or later, so I called the Tecate Sector B.P.s, and gave them a "heads up", on the group assembled in Mexico, and about to enter. The B.P.'s of course, over responded and sent a car out at high speed to the spot and the Mex's scattered like quail, even though they were still on their side of the fence. I actually think the B.P.'s would RATHER scare them back, than to have to chase and catch them over here, and do all the paper work, etc. A big Homel;and Secirity Bus leaves Campo every morning about 7:00AM for Tijuana to put them back in their country.
Sunday morning turned out to be the best part of the entire weekend! It just started off so cool that even if the entire rest of the day was a "bummer", it would still have been a good day. Around 8:00AM or so, a B.P. chopper came flying down the line, and we all waved like crazy, and pointed at a Legal Observers' car that was in the area on the Border road. The pilot made a few low passes, and the landed about 50 yards away from us. There were at least four of us on that hill, and Little Dog on the next hill over, who also had a ring side seat to the action about to unfold. ( People I remember being there were a new guy from Utah named Stealth 1, due to his generation 3 night vision, Nancy and Linsey H., and myself.) The pilot got out of the bird, came over, and shook our hands. He asked what we were all pointing at, and we told him that the ACLU was in that car down on the road, and they were our "enemies", always trying to "frame us" for anything we MIGHT do, but have never done. After exchanging pleasantries he got back in the bird took off straight up, made a hard left bank, decending to a position DIRECTly over the ACLU's in their Legal Observers Car, ending up about 15 feet over their heads, max., and inflicting a severe case of rotor wash on the unsuspecting, but richly deserving ACLU bitches driving that car!! They got the "message" and left rather quickly! Of course we were all rolling on the ground with laughter at this point, as a more fitting case of poetic justice has never been rendered more swiftly, or more accurately than that rotor wash was that morning... by the way, the pilot said before leaving," Off the record, I think that what you guys are doing is GREAT!" I guess those ACLU bitches learned that any vehicle loiterring along the Border Fence is subject to a "closer inspection" by patrolling aircraft!...ha, ha, ha...he, he, he...What a good way to start any day. Goes to show ya. We do have a little fun, every now and then, down on the "Campo Line"! We also are running some new Psy-ops programs on the Mexicans along the line, and it has been working real well at deterring them from coming in... sorry, top secret... By the way, we got official credit for 100 pounds of narcotics 2 nights ago.
