Many in this Arizona border town want armed vigilantes, who've vowed to round up undocumented migrants, to leave.

Abstract: 
--

Excerpt:

As the US-bound caravan, whose participants plan to apply for asylum at an official port, crept at a snail's pace towards the US, Trump deployed thousands of soldiers to the southern border.

Fueled by dizzying conspiracy theories, anti-immigrant hoaxes and a steady stream of misinformation from the White House, militia groups also flocked to the borderlands in recent weeks, answering what they interpreted as a call to action.

In Arivaca, residents and immigration advocates accuse Veterans on Patrol, Utah Gun Exchange and militia groups of harassment, intimidation and violent threats.
