Bundy-Style Leader In Texas: We’re Fighting For ‘National Sovereignty’

The leader of an effort to rally a Bundy Ranch-style militia at the Texas border said this week that his troops were fighting for “national sovereignty.”

“We have patriots all across this country who are willing to sacrifice their time, their monies, even quit their jobs to come down and fight for freedom, liberty and national sovereignty,” Chris Davis said, as quoted by Rio Grande Valley TV station KRGV.

Davis would not tell KRGV how many members make up his group, Operation Secure Our Border, nor offer an outline of when and where the group planned the deploy along the Texas-Mexico border.

Davis, who has been identified as a member of the Second Amendment activist group Open Carry Texas, also reportedly released a YouTube video recently in which he issued a warning to those migrants crossing the border illegally: “Get back across the border or you will be shot.”
