Minutemen catch 141 illegals so far.
In its second day of operations, the civilian volunteer Minuteman Project claimed to have aided the Border Patrol in the apprehension of 141 illegal aliens along the Arizona border and deterred many more from attempting to cross from Mexico.
With the project gaining favorable attention, a city official from New Mexico announced he would like to expand the project to his state.

"It has been successful," said Chris Simcox of Civil Homeland Defense, a group aiding the Minuteman Project. "No one has come across."
