    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Jim Gilchrist — one of the founders of the Minutemen Project — said he’s reaching out across America to recruit at least 3,500 volunteers who will go to the border to patrol and cover the “porous areas” between San Diego and Brownsville, Texas. The campaign is called “Operation Normandy,” and it’s set for May 1, 2015, Raw Story reported. “If you are familiar with the Normandy invasion of France in 1944, then you have an idea how large and logistically complicated this event will be,” Mr. Gilchrist said, Raw Story reported. “However, there is one difference. We are not going...

    SACRAMENTO — State intelligence reports released Thursday by the Schwarzenegger administration include material suggesting that the governor's anti-terrorism operation was interested in the actions of the Minuteman volunteer border patrol group. The reports also include a cryptic reference to "suspicious conversations at a mosque" in San Diego. TState officials released more than 80 intelligence reports prepared for the state Office of Homeland Security, in response to The Times' disclosure that two reports carried information about domestic political protests ranging from antiwar gatherings to protect-the-seals rallies. Large sections of the reports shown to reporters had been removed. The homeland security office...

    I am a member of NICPAC (Nevada Independent Conservatives Political Action Committee). We are hosting a symposium in Reno, Nevada featuring, among others, Chris Simcox of the Minutemen Project. Apparently, the same people who organized the illegal immigration march have caught wind of this and are planning to protest our symposium (it will be held at the Meadow Wood Courtyard Hotel - next to Wild Oats Market - on Friday, June 2, 2006 at 5:30 p.m.) I am asking my fellow freepers to help me organize a counter-protest in support of our symposium. Signs, American flags, and a great spirit...

    Yes to Immigration (And Limits on It) Opinion Editorial by Walter E. Williams - Apr 13, 2006 My sentiments on immigration are inscribed at the foot of the Statue of Liberty:"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door."These words of poet Emma Lazarus served as the welcome mat for tens of millions seeking liberty and opportunity in America — legally. Being a relatively land-rich and labor-scarce nation, immigration has always been good for...

    Almost any discussion of immigration elicits deeply felt emotions. Still, most Americans seem to feel that immigrants will continue to play an important role in our country’s growth and that America should continue to be a beacon to the disadvantaged and oppressed peoples of the world seeking a better life. That there are many more of these than the United States can possibly accommodate does not seem to deter most Americans in favoring a liberal immigration policy. Ours certainly fits that description. For one thing, young, working immigrants replenish our aging workforce and provide additional payroll taxes to help keep...

    Over time, through my studies of political science, current events and world history, I have come to realize that which moves the world is not entirely ideas, but usually the control of currency, trading routes, resources, geography, and masses of people themselves via clever manipulation. Ideology and politics can be found, in the course of human events, to be nothing more than a marketing scheme - with guns. In the case of Hillary Clinton, ideology is purely a means to an end. There is no doubt she holds various beliefs dear, most of which are seditious and strike at the...

    MORRISTOWN, Tenn. - A volunteer movement that vows to guard America from a wave of illegal immigration has spread from the dusty U.S.-Mexican border to the verdant hollows of Appalachia. At least 40 anti-immigration groups have popped up nationally, inspired by the Minuteman Project that rallied hundreds this year to patrol the Mexican border in Arizona. "It's like O'Leary's cow has kicked over the lantern. The fire has just started now," said Carl "Two Feathers" Whitaker, an American Indian activist and perennial gubernatorial candidate who runs the Tennessee Volunteer Minutemen, aimed at exposing those who employ illegals. Critics call the...
  • Not welcome Laredo LULAC councils state opposition to Minutemens arrival on border

    The Laredo-area League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) are urging City Council to create a city ordinance to deter the Minutemen Project as nearby El Cenizo did so last week. "Texas LULAC does not wish to belittle the Minutemen Project," said Estela Quintanilla, director for LULAC District XIV. "But we oppose the project because it employs tactics against immigrants … and tends to breed racism." The Minutemen Project, a nationally organized group of citizens aiming to stop illegal immigration on the U.S. borders, already has two active groups in Texas with one mission in October in the El Paso...

    Minuteman Northern Border Watch Will Be International By Kevin Fobbs When the American-Canadian Conservative Coalition (AC3) announced last week it was joining Chris Simcox and the Minuteman Project to develop an internationally supported citizens border watch project patterned after the successful Minuteman Project of Arizona, American and Canadian media and political observers wondered how this historic effort would work. It was clear from the onset that with both nations sharing a mutual border of over 4,000 miles which are largely unprotected coupled with the release last week of the Canadian Senate Committee on National Security and Defense report which candidly...

    Speaking to reporters, Schwarzenegger on Friday likened the armed Minuteman group that has roamed the Arizona-Mexico border looking for illegal immigrants to a "neighborhood patrol" that has succeeded where the government failed. A day earlier, he called their work "fantastic" and chastised the Bush administration for failing to secure the border. Schwarzenegger also had said Thursday that a Spanish-language billboard characterizing Los Angeles as a Mexican city was "divisive," a comment echoed by conservative groups. Last week, the governor said the U.S. should "close the borders" — a remark his staff said was imprecise and for which he later apologized....

    President George Bush called them “vigilantes.” Self-appointed “civil rights” activists called them “racists.” The U.S. Border Patrol fretted that they might injure someone or be hurt themselves. And Mexico’s president threatened to haul them into international court. But the 635 volunteers who compose the Minuteman Project apparently have done what their president, the civil rights hacks, the Border Patrol, and the Mexican government have been unable to do: stem the flood of illegal aliens across a notoriously porous 23-mile stretch of Arizona’s border with Mexico. The barren stretch is a prime illegal entry point along the Mexico-Arizona border, where last...

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Local human rights advocates hope to dissuade other organizations from confronting armed volunteers who will be watching for illegal border crossings in southeastern Arizona in April. The Tucson-based Border Action Network is trying to persuade other groups from sending people to Douglas, Tombstone or other areas of Cochise County.    Volunteers from across the country are expected to gather in Tombstone on Friday for a rally and an orientation session organized by the Minutemen Project, a volunteer group that is rallying people to watch the border.    They'll disperse in small groups and set up observation...

    Volunteers for an effort to patrol the Mexican border reported their first sighting of suspected illegal immigrants, resulting in 18 arrests, authorities said Sunday. Participants in the Minuteman Project spotted the migrants Saturday near Naco as the volunteers were surveying the border to familiarize themselves with area. When agents arrived, they apprehended 18 people, Border Patrol spokesman Andy Adame said. "You observe them, report them and get out of the way," said Mike McGarry, a spokesman for the project, which begins Monday and is to continue for a month. The volunteers reported another illegal immigrant after he wandered onto the...

    Mexico City, Mexico, Mar. 1 (UPI) -- With the peak season for illegal border crossings looming in the next few months, both Mexico and the United States are gearing up for thousands of inevitable confrontations between Mexicans who will attempt the treacherous journey through the Arizona desert and the American border patrol and immigration authorities on the other side.
