This is my first, and probably last attempt to take a photo with my camera through infrared goggles. It didn't work like I thought it would, but the effect was nice. The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps use these goggles to spot illegal immigrants during a "muster." A muster is what they call their gatherings to watch the borders or high traffic areas for illegal immigrants. On this night they were stationed on a ranch near Amado, Ariz.
They ended up spotting 13 alleged illegal immigrants. All 13 of them were eventually picked up by Border Patrol. -- Leila Navidi
