'Patriots' to patrol reservation despite warning

A group calling itself the Yuma Patriots plans to patrol the Cocopah Reservation in Arizona despite being warned they aren't welcome there.

The all-volunteer group has been warned by the Cocopah Tribe not to come to the reservation. But founder Flash Sharrar says tribe has issued fishing and hunting to members of his group so they are allowed.

The group is aligning itself with the Minuteman Project, a citizens group that claims to have a right to patrol the U.S-Mexico border and haul in migrants.
