KAWEAH, California — SoCal Martial Law Alerts (SCMLA) interviewed Dutch Joens, host of the Dutch Joens Radio Program, who discussed a call that recently went out to America’s militias to muster for at least three days near Arizona’s troubled border with Mexico.
According to Joens, an Arizona militia sent a request out to the nation’s Constitutional militias to help secure a 50-mile section of Arizona’s southernmost border for at least three days. The three-day period is to begin on the evening of July 9, 2010 and will extend at least until July 12, 2010. The 50-mile section of border to be protected extends approximately 80 miles inland from Arizona’s southernmost border and is being used as a “dry port” by Mexican cartels to facilitate drug smuggling, human trafficking, etc. into America.
“This isn’t a political action per se. This is a reaction to an invasion,” Joens said.
“There are more beheadings along the border than there are in Iraq and Afghanistan and all the Arab countries put together, but the media won’t report it,” said Joens. “People have their relatives kidnapped. They pay the ransom and then they’re delivered in a 50-gallon drum in parts. So, we’re on the border of a third-world nation that is exporting its violence on us and we need to do something to stop it.”
Joens stated that the “mission” of the operation is to shut the illegal border crossing down for at least three days, because “if we can do it, the federal government has no excuse.”
On June 16, 2010, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu stated that Arizona needs “support from the federal government. It’s their job to secure the border and they haven’t done it. In fact, President Obama suspended the construction of the fence and it’s just simply outrageous.”
On June 18, 2010, Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl told a local Tea Party audience that President Obama had said in a private conversation that he would not secure America’s southern border until the “immigration reform” law is passed. “In other words, they’re holding it hostage,” Kyl said, “They don’t want to secure the border unless and until it is combined with ‘comprehensive immigration reform.’”
During SCMLA’s interview with Joens, which took place on June 27, 2010, he told viewers that he’s “hoping that by the time you hear this, we’ll have five, six, seven hundred militia guys from across the country down there. They’re coming from Michigan, Oregon, all over. We’re sending a small contingent, because we’re a small militia. But if somebody can just send one person … ”
At the conclusion of the interview, Joens gave instructions on how anyone can help, even if they are not able to travel to Arizona.
