Neo-Nazi Militia Patrols Arizona Desert and States, “It will be ‘deadly’ for them to cross that border”

A leader of the Mesa chapter of the largest neo-Nazi group in the United States, the National Socialist Movement, decided to patrol a part of the Arizona desert near Casa Grande over the weekend against the wishes of the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office.

The group of armed men led by J.T. Ready, known for his opposition to immigrants, were unwelcome in the area, but hailed their weekend operation as a “monumental event” they intend to continue throughout the summer. 

Calling immigrants “vulture food” Ready, who failed in his bid for Mesa City Council in 2006, vowed to “make their lives miserable.” 

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said in a statement,”This is not helpful and personally and professionally, I do not endorse, nor do I tolerate hate speech, discrimination or bigotry of any kind. These groups should stay out of Pinal County.”
