I went undercover with a militia on the US-Mexico border. Here’s what I saw.

"I crawl out of the back of the pickup with my rifle in hand. "Keep your weapons nice and tight," Captain Pain orders. I am traveling light. Unlike the others, I don't view southern Arizona as a war zone, so I didn't put steel plates in my chest rig. Next to everyone else's commando-style AR-15s, my Ruger Mini-14 with a wood stock is slightly out of place. But everything else is square—I'm wearing a MultiCam uniform, desert tan combat boots, and a radio on my shoulder. I fit in just fine.

We are in a Walmart parking lot in Nogales. Captain Pain and a couple of others go into the store to get supplies. In Pain's absence, Showtime is our commanding officer. He is a Marine special­-ops veteran who did three tours in Afghan­istan. He has camo paint on his face and a yeti beard. He gets in the cab to check Facebook on his phone while Destroyer, Jaeger, Spartan, and I stand with our backs to the truck, rifles in hand, keeping watch for anything suspicious. The Mexican border is three miles away."

The Puffin Foundation notes with sorrow the loss of our esteemed colleague and friend, whose devotion to equal justice and human rights led to the bestowal of our highest honor, the Puffin-Nation Award for Creative Citizenship. A highly principled man, Michael Ratner was a warm and caring individual whose life’s work has left our community stronger. We extend condolences to his wife, Karen Ranucci, and his family.
