New Mexico: Last week, the United Constitution Patriots, which is an armed group that includes veterans, stopped the movement of 357 migrants who had illegally crossed into the US until the Border Patrol arrived. Weapons were never pointed at the migrants but were carried for protection in the event of armed attack by paramilitary groups that sometimes escort the illegal caravans. Nevertheless, the group’s leader, Larry Mitchell Hopkins, was arrested by the FBI on a federal charge of possessing firearms. The arrest came two days after the American Civil Liberties Union accused the group of being a “fascist militia.” New Mexico’s Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham ordered an investigation to see if the group impersonated law enforcement.

The FBI on Saturday said it had arrested Larry Hopkins, the leader of an armed group that is stopping undocumented migrants after they cross the U.S.-Mexico border into New Mexico.

The arrest came two days after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) accused the group of illegally detaining migrants and New Mexico’s Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham ordered an investigation.

Hopkins, 69, also known as Johnny Horton, was arrested in Sunland Park, New Mexico, on a federal complaint charging him with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

“We’re not worried about it, he’s going to be cleared,” said Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), blaming his arrest on political pressure from Lujan Grisham.

Hopkins is the “national commander” of the UCP, which has had around half a dozen members camped out on a rotating basis near Sunland Park since late February.
