US authorities have arrested an alleged member of a militia that has been stopping migrants trying to cross the US-Mexico border.
Larry Mitchell Hopkins, 69, was detained in New Mexico as a felon in possession of a weapon.
It comes just days after a video emerged of militia members detaining dozens of migrants in the desert.
The group, United Constitutional Patriots, has been condemned by civil rights groups and local officials.
“This is a dangerous felon who should not have weapons around children and families,” said New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas.
