American Border Patrol is a private, non-governmental, organization with the stated purpose of informing Americans about the border, which it monitors mostly by aerial surveillance. According to ABP's website: "American Border Patrol is an organization founded to bring the crisis called Illegal Immigration to the forefront of the American public's consciousness. By using high tech, innovative equipment, ABP members detect, locate and report illegal immigration as it occurs. ABP has a mandate to make information about illegal immigration available to the public. We do this through the use of the internet and other media. ABP has a strict hands off policy, unlike other border action groups who are interested in this issue, we adhere to a strict observe and report policy. "Our goal is to show the American people that the problem can be resolved, and we know how to do it!"VideoVideo: 2011 Glenn Spencer, founder of the American Border PatrolVideo: 2008 American Patrol…

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.
