"Grr...Fucking Civil Border Patrol!"
Trevor Philips

Minute Man Blues is a Strangers and Freaks mission given to Trevor Philips by Manuel. It is the last of the missions concerning the Civil Border Patrol.


In Paleto Bay, on the opposite corner from the Hen House, Trevor meets Manuel, one of the Mexican men Trevor helped the Civil Border Patrol capture in An American Welcome. Manuel castigates Trevor for helping the Civil Border Patrol; Manuel asserts that his family has been living in America for over 200 years, and so has more right to be there than Trevor or any of the Civil Border Patrol members. Infuriated by Manuel's continued harangues, Trevor pulls a pistol and puts it to Manuel's head, but Manuel refuses to back down. He tells Trevor that the Civil Border Patrol are at that moment harassing immigrant workers at a nearby farm. Manuel insists that Trevor put a stop to them, and states that he will pay Trevor not a single dime for performing this service.

Trevor drives to the farm Manuel has mentioned. There, he spots Josef threatening workers with a Sawn-off Shotgun. Trevor kills Josef (if Trevor waits too long before doing so, Josef will panic and shoot one of the workers and the mission will fail). Joe is nearby and runs towards a Fieldmaster to try to escape. Once he is killed, Trevor calls Manuel and tells him that the two have been eliminated, thus ending the mission.

Mission Objective

  • Kill Joe and Josef.

Gold Medal Objectives

  • What Goes Around... - Use the stun gun on Joe and Josef before killing them.
    • Easily done by stunning Josef as you approach him (watch out, he's armed) and then eliminating him as you see fit, and then as Joe escapes, shoot out his tires and then do the same. Take out Joe quickly to achieve the second requirement in tandem.
  • No Migration - Kill Joe and Josef before they leave the farm.



  • An alternate way to kill Josef is to use a sniper rifle on him from outside the farm, though Joe is obscured by the barn and Trevor may not be able to avoid the ensuing chase.
  • Trevor may not always phone Manuel at the end of the mission. This appears to be the case if you allow Joe's tractor to escape onto the highway and Trevor kills him there.
  • Even if you flatten the tractor tires immediately (seemingly eliminating the need for the ATV), it's impossible to get the gold medal with out some type of motorized transport, because Joe will outrun Trevor at a rate that prevents the use of the tazer-gun.
    • Alternatively, the player could choose to plant a sticky bomb or proximity mine outside the barn door before killing Josef, allowing for an easy kill as soon as Joe tries to escape
  • Sometimes Manuel walks away from the opening cut-scene and sometimes he drives off in his pick-up. The direction he drives is not scripted and may differ each time.
  • If Trevor's Pistol has a Suppressor attached, it will clip through Manuels' head during the cutscene.
