Evidently the Minuteman Project has more volunteers than they are letting us know about.

Had an interesting news story here on Texas cable channel.
They said that during Holy Week Mexican Nationalists come across the border to shop at a mall in San Antonio.
But they said due to the "TIGHT BORDER CONTROL" (HUH?)
they were concerned there wouldnt be as many shoppers this year. (always about money)

Tight border control? News to me!

From what I've gathered about the Minutemen, so far, is that they're a bunch of good, and well intentioned, people who are doing a necessary job.

That being said there are people just waiting for an accident to happen that can be blamed on the Minutemen. If some illegal Mexican winds up as coyote bait we can be sure the Minutemen will be blamed for it.

These people have to be stopped before someone gets hurt.

I wish them luck and I hope there use extreme caution in who they accept to work with them. There are a lot of people vehemently opposed to their mission. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the volunteers were actually looking to cause problems.

They are getting beat up by the MSM and - gasp - Bush himself, who doesn't understand they are not vigillantes. They are only there to watch, to "spot" illegals and call the locations in to Border Patrol.

They really need a good media guy to get their message out. Hope someone who knows them will advise them of that.

This is like a busy intersection in a city. The cops are too busy to direct traffic so the citizens get out put on fluorescent armbands and get the job done. I love it. With enough volunteers we could once again secure the border.

But wait. Someone politically won't look good. so expect some Washintonian to put a stop to what desperately needs doing. When that happens the proverbial shi... will hit the fan.

Well, I do know that if work allowed me to take the time, I would find it gratifying to volunteer for a week or two. This must really irritate the no-borders crowd. An added bonus.

You know how bad it has become when American citizens feel they have to start patrolling their own borders. This would never happen if the government just enforced the current immigration laws and sent all the illegals it could find back to their home countries. The government also needs to slap huge fines on employers who hire the illegals. We ended slavery once. Hiring illegals at a fraction of what employers would have to pay American citizens for the same job is just another form of slavery.

I just hope the Minutemen stay within the law so that they become heroes rather than criminals in the eyes of the American public.

Here is an open letter sent to the FBI in Phoenix.




The following correspondence was mailed via U.S. Postal Service today to the FBI to
request help to preserve the civil rights of MMP volunteers and prospective volunteers:



TO: FROM:

SQUAD 12 JAMES W. GILCHRIST

FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION 22 VISTA DEL VALLE

201 EAST INDIANOLA ALISO VIEJO, CA. 92656

PHOENIX, AZ. 85012

March 25, 2005



Dear FBI,



I am one of the coordinators of the Minuteman Project, a grassroots organization of Americans who will assemble under the First Amendment in Cochise County, Arizona from April 1 through 30 to conduct a political protest and rally in support of the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws. We will also spend much of that 30 day period observing, and reporting to the appropriate law enforcement agency, any suspected illegal activity where crossing over the U.S. international border into the United States is part of that illegal activity.



I am writing to complain that the ACLU has consistently attempted to interfere with the rights of the volunteers of the Minuteman Project to peaceably assemble in Arizona. Also, the ACLU has repeatedly used libelous and slanderous rhetoric to thwart the ability of U.S. citizens to assemble under the First Amendment, effectively dissuading some U.S. citizens from exercising their civil rights.



With the express purpose of depriving U.S. citizens of the rights to assemble and speak underthe First Amendment, I feel that the ACLU has maliciously engaged in consanguinity

(aka "McCarthyism") by its pejorative references to volunteers for the Minuteman Project

as "vigilantes" and as persons who are "taking the law into their own hands."



The ACLU's witch-hunt mentality has seriously eroded the ability of me, and several thousand other prospective participants, to freely assemble in Arizona under the First Amendment of the Constitution of The United States of America.



Through malicious harassment and intimidation, against U.S. citizens seeking to exercise their rights to freely assemble, including threats of arrest and law suits (for alleged acts that no one had committed, or intended to commit) the ACLU has effectively and illegally suppressed the civil rights of fellow citizens.



I am requesting that all legal remedies and protections available to preserve the civil rights under The Constitution of the United States of America to myself and those participating, or anticipating participation in, the Minuteman Project political rally and assembly, be provided.



Sincerely Yours,



James W. Gilchrist - The Minuteman Project [ Web site URL: www.minutemanproject.com ]
