"W$3 e can not allow racist and armed vigilantes to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum", the ACLU said in a letter sent to the New Mexico governor and attorney general.

The video, recorded by group member Jim Benvie on 16 April, shows a large group of migrants who were said to have just crossed the border near Sunland Park, New Mexico, being detained by the armed vigilantes. A voice of the woman apparently taking the video says, "I don't know if we got 'em all. I don't know what to say about this other than the fact it's gotta stop".

The group's actions have been condemned by civil liberties groups and New Mexico state officials.

Mr Benvie, a spokesman for the United Constitutional Patriots, told the New York Times the group has been camping in the region for the past two months and plans to stay until Mr Trump succeeds in building his controversial border wall. "And of course as usual, this is why we're here, guys", he says.

- An 8-year-old Guatemalan girl who was picked up by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents after she crossed the Colorado River was misdiagnosed as having measles.

A Border Patrol vehicle is later seen arriving.

Central American migrants, part of a caravan hoping to reach the US border, walk on the shoulder of a road in Frontera Hidalgo, Mexico, Friday, April 12, 2019.

The group surrendered when border patrol agents determined they were illegal immigrants from Guatemala and Honduras. "This is the first known time in recent history that a drone has been utilized as a "look-out" in order to aid in illegal entries in the El Paso Sector", officials stated.

"These people are armed, their intentions are misguided and they certainly don't have training, much less any authority, to be conducting arrests and long-term detentions of people coming across the border", Simonson said.

"Interference by civilians in law enforcement matters could have public safety and legal consequences for all parties involved", the spokesman said in a written statement, referring those who suspect illegal activity to call 911 or contact the agency directly.

The Associated Press reported that more than 700 migrants were taken into custody along the border between Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.

The following day, El Paso Sector agents patrolling in southern New Mexico apprehended a previously deported gang member from El Salvador.
