Critics Soften Their Image Of Minutemen

The Minuteman Project was launched this year amid fears that racist extremists would confront and possibly injure illegal immigrants crossing into Arizona.

But there were no significant confrontations - no fights and rarely any excitement - when hundreds of people traveled to the Arizona desert in April to watch for illegal immigrants and report them to immigration agents.

Since then the movement has taken hold, with Minuteman-inspired organizations being launched in several states, and even critics acknowledge that the participants are more than just a band of misfits, bigots and extremists.
