U.S. Border Patrol agents have been overwhelmed since October 2013 by a flood of undocumented immigrants, most of them children.
The often-unaccompanied children come from Central American countries, so they are not turned away, but granted temporary asylum per U.S. law until they can have an immigration hearing.
Many of the children are coming over the border in southern parts of Texas, overwhelming small towns, reports CBS Dallas-Fort Worth.
In response, some militia members are reportedly gathering on the U.S. border town of Laredo, Tx., to create a citizen's blockade against the illegal immigrants.
"This will continue for days and weeks to come" and spread "to other points" along the U.S. border, Barbie Rogers, founder of the Patriots Information Hotline militia group, told Newsmax.com.
Rogers wouldn't say if the militiamen would be armed, but added, "Just like at the Bundy ranch, there will be no patriot out there on that line that will fire first."
"We are trying to contact every person and every patriot in the United States to go down and help do something the government should have done a long time ago," Rogers stated
"The situation these men are walking into, they have a very good possibility of being shot by the drug cartels down there, the gang members down there and also by our own government down there."
