In this piece, the author portrays Chris Davis negatively, alleging military and criminal misconduct. The articles does little to focus on the seriousness of the situation on the border between the U.S. and Mexico other than suggest the militia should not be doing this as the ‘real’ border patrol is against the idea.

I would argue that perhaps if the border patrol were doing their jobs effectively, there would be no need for well intentioned patriots like Chris from organizing with other citizens to protect our nation from what is essentially an invasion on our soil by a foreign enemy.
