Authorities arrested a Texas man belonging to a citizen militia on weapons charges Monday morning.
Massey belonged to the paramilitary group “Camp Lonestar,” a colorful outfit that sports guns, military fatigues, and soul patches in its mission to secure the border.
Massey featured prominently in a September profile in the Texas Observer, referred to as a Lonestar “CO,” or commanding officer.
According to the Observer and KGBT, the militia was inspired to set up camp in Brownsville after a recent surge in undocumented immigration from Central America.
The group also guards against “members of ISIS” crossing the boarder, echoing recent remarks by Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
