They may in fact be "illegal alien activists", but most of them are illegal aliens themselves.
I agree 100%.
Don't be so sure that it's just illegal aliens. Their events are usually organized by scummy "Americans" of dubious political leanings. Duane Roberts is a member of the Green Party and is a long-time activist. He posted one of the online notices about the meeting in Garden Grove (quoted below).
This is a web page from 1999. http://www.nettrash.com/users/socialjustice/. Roberts was (and still may be) a member of North Orange County Greens.org & they are somewhat affliated with the lovely Medea Benjamin (use Google if you've never heard of her).
This is Roberts' May 18th post about the Garden Grove meeting:
MinuteMan Found in Garden Grove
Jim Gilchrist, the founder of the fascist "Minuteman Project", will be speaking at the Garden Grove Women's Club on Wednesday, May 25th at 7:30 pm. Subject: Minuteman founder Jim Gilchrist speaks in Garden Grove on Wednesday, May 25th
I'm sending this message out to make people aware of the fact that Jim Gilchrist, the founder of the fascist "Minuteman Project", will be speaking at the Garden Grove Women's Club on Wednesday, May 25th at 7:30 pm.
Gilchrist has been invited to speak there by the California Coalition for Immigration Reform (C.C.I.R.), one of the groups responsible for putting the racist Proposition 187 on the California ballot in 1994.
I live a couple of miles away from the Garden Grove Women's Club, and I know as a fact there is a fairly long public sidewalk that surrounds the building which houses it. It's also right next to a major street.
Although I'm not currently involved in organizing a counterdemonstration, I think one definitely needs to take place! We need to show our strong opposition to racism, fascism, and xenophobia!
