Cornyn to Minutemen: Back Off

WOAI: San Antonio News - Cornyn to Minutemen: Back Off: "U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) today urged the civilian 'Minuteman' border patrol organization not to begin operation along the Texas-Mexico border in October as planned, expressing concern that the group's activities could do more harm than good.

'I would hope that everybody who is concerned about the porous nature of our borders would allow the federal government to act,' Cornyn told 1200 WOAI news this morning.

The Minuteman action 'may actually not help solve the problem but may create a new and additional problem,' Cornyn said.

'So my preference would be to let the federal government do the job the federal government is supposed to do.'"
