They stated that their target was to stop undocumented immigration to the U.S. However their calls to action for a 1,000 “vigilantes” fail short as only an estimated 200 turned out. However they were successful in turning out about 200 members of the media. Here is quote from the article; "Things were going better than he could imagine.
