Maria Hinojosa of PBS Now interviews the founder of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, Chris Simcox, here. I didn't listen to the interview, and I have a neutral position on Simcox and his group . However, I find their choice of links quite interesting.
They give the game away by linking to the CFR, specifically the illogical, not comprehensively economic "The Economic Logic of Illegal Immigration" by Gordon Hanson.
They also link to what is probably a hit piece from the SPLC, a group indirectly linked to the Mexican government.
As, as a capper, they link to the Kathy Kiely USA Today article offering a highly misleading reading of a Gallup poll.
 I interviewed him a few years ago and, while he didn't seem as loony as he had been portrayed in hit pieces, one of his compadres did not leave a good impression and I never wrote it up. Part of that was because he failed to comply with my request that he provide examples of how the MSM has misrepresented him. He couldn't point to specific examples, prefering instead to repeat his talking points. There's also some controversy over a fence they're building and the funding for it, and of course his group is apparently separate from Jim Gilchrist's current and former groups with similar names.
