If you measure success in terms of news media coverage, the Minuteman Project volunteers have received their 15 minutes of fame.
If you measure success in terms of dollars spent by law enforcement, Border Patrol, and immigration authorities, thousands of dollars are being spent watching the Minuteman volunteers - waiting for them to commit any infraction - they are successful.
These resources would be far better spent doing their real jobs of protecting and serving the public. This distraction of FBI, INS, Border Patrol, Cochise County sheriff, and any other federal, state, county or local resource makes the Minuteman project a failure.
Success would be Mexican President Vicente Fox enacting reforms in his country that would make his people want to stay home.
