The U.S.-Mexico Border Patrol... From Canada

No doubt you've heard of The Minuteman Project by now. Basically, it's a loosely-assembled group of volunteers who look for illegal immigrants coming across the U.S.-Mexico border and report them to the authorities. I'm not going to go into the universal laws of live and let live, but suffice to say these guys are Grade-A jerks.

That said, the strangest thing about this organization is why they're collecting volunteers from Alaska, New Jersey, Kansas, and even Canada. (click the above link and scroll down.) I'm just kind of curious as to what type of work the Canadian volunteers are going to be doing to protect the US from a Mexican invasion. "Hey Francois, get over here! See that guy? He looks like a Mexican to me, man."
