Observers trained to watch Minutemen

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash -- Volunteers began training at St Michael's Church to work as Legal Observers of groups like the Minutemen Project.

Aguila Del Norte trains volunteers to find, follow and monitor groups that watch for illegal immigrants as they cross U.S. boarders.

Observers are to remain non-violent at all time, even when they see immigrants being harmed. Armed only with cell phones, two-way radios and cameras, they document all interaction between anti-immigration groups and immigrants. If they see anything illegal, they report it to authorities.
