Is this legit? UN Troops on US/Mexico bordergreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
This article says there are UN Troops stationed in Mexico along the Texas border because of NAFTA...
Can this be real?

I forgot to add that I found this through the WorldNet Daily site.

Well, if it's on worldnetdaily, it must be the truth. I hear that they are building compounds to house the sheeple when Y2K hits and the NWO takes over.;)

I too wanted verification of this story. I have not seen such verification yet (or Dianne's "blessing"). Dianne?
As for the compounds/shelters (I prefer the term ClubFed, coined by someone else on this forum), I don't think the prison-camp-like areas have the capacity for large numbers of US citizens. ClubFed may be more for:
- Illegal immigrants (if the government ever decides that it really WANTS to catch them)
- People who violate martial-law
I think the UN presence is significant. It would be nice to verify this story. Sadly, if true, I doubt we could verify this. I would assume this is "national security issue", thus "hushed" on the mass- media.

No reason to verify it. If you are a True Believer (TB) then the fact it is on worldnetdaily should be enough. Yes a mass of U.N. troops along the Mexican border (it was the Alaskan border just a few weeks ago..) would seem logical - to the typical paranoid TB (GI)

Yeah, but Vinnie, it's obvious that the troops that were along the Alaska border are the same ones that are now on the Mexican border. The black helicopters have been transporting them in the last few days. They realized that having the troops on the Alaska border was a big mistake as nobody anywhere had any desire whatsoever to sneak into Alaska.

As I posted in an earlier thread, this comes from the March issue of Soldier Of Fortune magazine:
>>Border Contingency Plans For Latin America Exodus
Latin America's instability is forcing the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service to plan for rapid construction of detention compounds near the U.S.-Mexico border that temporarily could house as many as 50,000 undocumented aliens.
Up to 10 of the military-style compounds could be constructed to provide tent housing, basic services, and recreation for detainees while their immigration status is checked, according to December news reports. The compounds' locations reportedly have not yet been selected.
Federal officials cited the recent influx of several thousand refugees from hurrican-ravaged Central America, as well as economic stress and past civil wars in Latin America, as reasons for preparation. One INS spokesman referred to the mass-exodus scenario as "an immigration emergency situation," according to the San Antonio Express-News. A Justice Department spokesman likened this program to the disaster- preparedness planning of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Two such detention compounds were built in 1995 during a federal exercise in southern Arizona and Texas. Each was surrounded with a chain-link fence with controlled access.
The border area with Mexico, spanning Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, is patrolled by thousands of law enforcement and U.S. military personnel. Complicating all efforts to control illegal immigration is the border's status as the primary route for drug trafficking into the United States.<<
When this article is combined with Willie's recent trip to Central America and with the World Net UN article then it may be time for a heads-up. Inspite of efforts by debunkers ( Vinnie & Craig ), this is looking very much like government Y2K preparedness. This very well may be signaling that Latin America un-remediated infrastructure will collapse. Sure hope that this is not the case since I'm only 150 miles north of the border.
