    "I had to come 1,200 miles to find a governor who believes in a simple principle called the rule of law," Gilchrist said at the Crescent Hotel. "I'm here to encourage all you Texans to stand your ground and get out there and vote for this governor." Gilchrist later added that "Perry has a clear record of decisive action to secure our borders, stop illegal drug and human trafficking trade and is very clearly the right choice for voters in Texas to fight illegal immigration." In accepting the endorsement, Perry blasted the federal government's effort to secure that nation's borders....

    Court Victory For Gilchrist “It was long overdue and warmly welcomed” was the quote made by Jim Gilchrist upon receiving the news, “the hijacker’s case they had fraudulently filed in the name of the Minuteman Project was thrown out of court; on none other, than, Friday the 13th!” There is no doubt Marvin Stewart, Debbie Courtney and Paul Sielski had a very bad Friday the 13th, when they learned Judge Wilkinson threw them out on their ear. Not only that, but once again, Courtney was slammed with a big fat court fine! The sanction was over $ 1,000.00, which is...

    In an expected victory this week the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) granted the Minuteman Project, Inc. a 501 (C) (4) non-profit tax exempt designation, that organization’s president, Jim Gilchrist, announced today. After a three-year review of the organization Gilchrist founded in 2004 the IRS concluded that there were no improprieties or irregularities that would prevent Gilchrist or his Minuteman Project organization from receiving the approval. The approval concluded a long application process and came as what Minuteman legal counsel at Gordon & Rees law firm states “a great victory for Jim Gilchrist and the Minuteman Project, Inc. The non-profit status...

    Minuteman co-founder Jim Gilchrist has taken out nomination papers to run as a Republican against Rep. Loretta Sanchez, D-Garden Grove. (H/T to theliberaloc.com for beating us to the punch on this.) Do you think one of the nation’s best known anti-illegal immigration activists is going to have a chance in a district which includes Santa Ana, a city with the highest ratio of Spanish speakers in the U.S.? Consider that Gilchrist lives in Aliso Viejo, which is outside of Sanchez’ district. That doesn’t prevent him from running, but he’ll face the tag of being a carpetbagger. Consider that district is...

    Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and Minuteman Co-Founder Jim Gilchrist have been documented lying to America by the Washington Times after false headlines ran on Tuesday proclaiming Mike Huckabee would try to remove birthright citizenship from the Constitution. The article confirms that Huckabee lied on CNN about his campaign being contacted about Gilchrist's false statements and Gilchrist lied in a release about Huckabee's immigration stances. Gilchrist put out a press release on Iowa's election eve, under the fake name of "Perry Emerson" that contained several false statements and embellishments of Huckabee's immigration stances. The release claimed Huckabee would try to reverse...

    Mike Huckabee yesterday contradicted his own top immigration surrogate, announcing he will not support a constitutional amendment to end birthright citizenship for children born in the United States to illegal aliens. It was a stark reversal after The Washington Times reported that James Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project, said Huckabee promised to pursue an amendment to the Constitution. In an article in yesterday's editions, Huckabee's spokeswoman did not challenge the former Arkansas governor's statements to Gilchrist...But by yesterday afternoon, Huckabee had backed away..."I do not support an amendment to the Constitution that would prevent children born in the U.S....

    The anti-illegal immigration Minuteman Civil Defense Corps and its political action committee have made it clear that they have not endorsed a presidential candidate, and if they do it will not be former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R). Minuteman Project co-founder Jim Gilchrist created a stir in the anti-illegal immigration community on Tuesday by endorsing Huckabee, who has surged to the lead in the polls in Iowa but has concerned some illegal immigration hard-liners with his past stances on the issue. Chris Simcox, the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps head who originally founded the Minuteman Project with Gilchrist, said in a...

    The surprise decision this week by Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist to endorse the candidacy of Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee has a drawn sharp reaction from within the Minuteman movement, which split two years ago over funding. Chris Simcox, founder and president of the Minuteman Civil Defense League called Gilchrist's endorsement of Huckabee "unwise." "Jim Gilchrist speaks only for himself – not for my organization and not for the Minuteman movement," Simcox told WND. Gilchrist's The Minuteman Project and Simcox's Minuteman Civil Defense League are completely separate organizations of citizen volunteers seeking to curb illegal immigration. "What raised everybody's...

    Minuteman co-founder James Gilchrist's endorsement of presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has spurred a backlash among illegal-immigration opponents who say the former Arkansas governor is soft on immigration enforcement. "Mike Huckabee is pro-amnesty and favors a path to citizenship for illegal aliens currently in the U.S. that would require a lifting of current penalties," said William Gheen, whose 25,000-member Americans for Legal Immigration sent mass mailings yesterday to more than 300 pro-enforcement groups.

    Jim Gilchrist Gives Major Endorsement to Mike Huckabee Tuesday, December 11, 2007 LITTLE ROCK , AR - In Iowa today, former Arkansas Governor and Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee received a major endorsement from Jim Gilchrist, founder of the multi-ethnic Minuteman Project. Huckabee said he was honored to receive the endorsement. "No one can question Jim's commitment to this country and the immigration problem. He has mobilized a group of volunteers to go to the border and draw attention to the issue of immigration. All of us want a policy where people come to this country through the front door,...

    Every Democrat running for president thinks anti-illegal immigration activists are all racists and xenophobes. Do we really need a Republican nominee for president who thinks the same way? Breakout GOP candidate Mike Huckabee, the soft-on-border control former governor of Arkansas, scored a jaw-dropping endorsement Tuesday from Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project. Despite a long gubernatorial record opposing employer sanctions and pushing tax-subsidized illegal alien education benefits, Huckabee won Gilchrist's support by unveiling a last-minute, tough-sounding homeland security plan. Trouble is, Huckabee has downright and longstanding contempt for his new bedfellows of convenience. Just two years ago, Huckabee appeared...

    COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa -- Huckabee announced this morning the endorsement of Jim Gilchrist, the founder of the anti-illegal immigration and border security group the Minutemen. More to come. Huckabee also responded on Romney's ad, outlining differences on immigration. “I'm somewhat flattered as I seem to be the recipient of the first negative attack ad in the Republican Primary," Huckabee said. "That's usually a sign of desperation on the part of an opponent who feels that his only way of winning is to attack and to destroy."

    Update: Here’s the official Huckabee campaign post on the endorsement. A commenter there also notes: Another positive sign is the fact that Roy Beck of NumbersUSA has changed several of his ratings for Governor Huckabee from “red” to “green” in response to his new immigration plan. This is a big turnaround from just a few days before, when Beck characterized the Governor as a “disaster” in the area of immigration. Here’s the new Numbers USA grid: We are entering Alice in Wonderland territory. *** Yeah, you read it right–the founder of the border control group, the Minuteman Project, is endorsing...

    Noting that he might not agree 100 percent on immigration with Huckabee, the firebrand illegal immigration opponent said Huckabee's recently released immigration plan won him over. "The governor has a plan and I appreciate his plan. That's why I'm supporting him. He's one of the few who's actually brought forth a plan and gone public with it. It shows to me that he's willing to engage in the tough love necessary to fix this problem," Gilchrist said. Gilchrist, whose organization is separate from the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, has drawn protests in appearances at college campuses in recent months for...

    Jim Gilchrist was scheduled to speak at my school, Long Beach City College (LBCC) this afternoon today, 26 Nov but the president of the school supposedly could not get security into the building to ensure his safety, citing that he was too "controversial". If he is too controversial, why was he invited in the first place? I told him that it's too bad some people don't have first amendment rights on college campuses. He just told me "whatever". Next to us and next to the podium where he was going to speak was a display case promoting Aztlan. For some...

    Three years ago, a retired, Orange County account and Vietnam War Veteran, could not get an answer to what seemed like a simple question, “Why has American stopped enforcing it’s immigration laws?” Unable to get the political establishment to take notice, he organized a protest at the local illegal labor site, in Laguna Beach, which in turn lead to the founding of the Minuteman Project. Even though we were told Gilchrist was a racist nut, that Simcox was a criminal; even though MS 13 was going kill us, the ACLU was going to sue us, the border patrol hated us;...
