ABP Border Battles Program to Air Feb. 22
Good timing for big focus on Arizona
Outdoor Channel crew (JB Productions) prepares to interview Glenn Spencer at ABP's ranch guest house on July 11, 2011.
AMERICAN BORDER PATROL - Glenn Spencer - Arizona
Glenn Spencer is the founder of American Border Patrol, a spin-off of the Minutemen. He lives on a ranch 800' from the border and across from him is a warehouse used by the drug cartels. He's been protecting the border for ten years with high tech equipment he has built, including special motion detectors, cameras and unmanned drone planes! He now patrols in his Cessna. Glenn has multiple action packed encounters with the bandits and smugglers.
American Patrol Report -- February 13
The Border Battles segment featuring Glenn Spencer will air on Feb. 22, 2012. Glenn says he has been working closely with the production crew since they visited him last July. "From what I understand, the American people are going to get the first honest look at what American Border Patrol has been doing for the past ten years," Spencer said.
The airing of the ABP segment couldn't come at a better time. "Our segment will air on the same day the Republicans hold a debate in Mesa and all the media will be here in Arizona to watch." Spencer said. "I hope they take the time to watch the Border Battles show and then come down and visit the ABP border ranch."
Note: ABP was not a spinoff of the Minutemen - it was the other way around.

Why are government bureaucrats turning America into Nazi Germany?
I'm sorry to put it in such a crass way, but that is exactly what they are doing.
