Sierra Vista, Arizona (American Border Patrol) March 19 -- Glenn Spencer of American Border Patrol has denounced a plan by a group headed by Chris Simcox to repel illegal aliens "with force if necessary!" "Mr. Simcox has made some pretty irresponsible statements in the past, but this crosses over the line and cannot be allowed to go unchallenged," Spencer said. According to Spencer, he had warned Simcox in the past to obey all laws and avoid the threat of the use of force on the border. "I told Mr. Simcox that I have worked for twelve years on the border problems and I was not interested in having all that work ruined by the irresponsible act of some misguided publicity seekers." Spencer said Simcox is becoming a perfect foil for those seeking to keep the borders open. "The recent story in the Los Angeles Times shows just how the open borders crowd will use Simcox' irresponsibility to smear all those who are seeking to have our laws enforced by official law enforcement agencies," Spencer added. Spencer said that American Border Patrol is a tax-exempt organization dedicated to reporting factual information, and opposes vigilante, militia movements.
