Investigative journalist Shane Bauer of Mother Jones has done some of his best work undercover. Sticking to his law: never tell a lie, Bauer was able to enlist as a volunteer trainee with a patriotic militia in California and then perform armed patrols with a Colorado militia group along the Arizona-Mexico border. They didn’t intercept any drug-smugglers or migrants, but they did intersect with local officers from the Police and Border Patrol. What that was like is every bit as good a story as it sounds.
