    "Secure America’s Borders Now" Tour - Take Action!

    I am by no means prejudice, but feel our borders need to be secured. The letter in this article (that I received over email) says it all:

    ALERT!! - Minuteman Goes to Washington
    Secure America’s Borders Now Tour !
    HEADING TO NORTH CAROLINA – DAY 7
    6501 Greenway Parkway Suite 103-640 Scottsdale, AZ 85254 :: Phone (520) 829-3112
    Heading to North Carolina – Making A Difference.

    Your response has been great. Over 18,000 Online Signatures and 1,000,000 faxes sent to Washington DC and Minutemen all over the country are downloading the petition and gathering signatures to fax to 717.569.3039

    Adapted from the Blogs:

    To the President and Government of Mexico:

    I'm about to plan a little trip with my family, and I would like to ask you to assist me. I'm going to walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico, and I need to make a few arrangements. I know you can help with this. I plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws. I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, I will be expecting the following:

    1. Free medical care for my entire family.
    2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need.
    3. All government forms need to be printed in English.
    4. I want my kids to be taught by English-speaking teachers.
    5. Schools need to include classes on American culture and history.
    6. I want my kids to see the American flag flying over the Mexican flag at their school.
    7. Please plan to feed my kids at school for both breakfast and lunch.
    8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I can get easy access to government services.
    9. I do not plan to have any car insurance, and I won't make any effort to learn local traffic laws.
    10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from Pres. Fox to leave me alone, please be sure that all police officers speak English.
    11. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes
    12. Please tell all the people in the country to be extremely nice and never say a critical word about me, or about the strain I might place on the economy.

    I know this is an easy request because you are good neighbors to the U.S.

    Thank you so much for your kind help.

    Thousands of Minutemen and Patriot Citizens all across the nation have stepped up to take a stand against illegal immigration.

    Awesome post Boone. These guys are heroes as far as I'm concerned.
    Why do you suppose the coward liberals don't have anything to say about this? Well, first of all, they're cowards. They couldn't defend themselves, let alone the borders! Secondly, they're ashamed that we have it better here than those in Mexico, so by letting in the illegals, they somehow feel like they're doing their part to help humanity. Finally, they need the votes. They know that if they con these people into believing that they give a **** about them, then maybe they'll vote for their guys in the elections.
    I know that we need to do something about illegal aliens in America. I don't think putting them all in jail is the right answer. America is the land of opportunity, and I think the same opportunities should apply to anyone who seeks it. I don't know what we should do about those already here, but I definitely agree we have to stop the influx of illegal border crossings.

    You know Lady, I know where you're coming from. I would say I'm sorry, but I'm not. I came here to engage in cordial debates, but I got to tell you, it just can't happen here. So I decided to play the same way that most of the other people play here. This is what typically happens here: A liberal makes a negative post (normally a link from somewhere else). A conservative gives his 2 cents worth, then other liberals jump on him. They not only attack his point of view, but call him names like monkey, bushoid, whatever. I'm just sick of seeing it.
    If you think I'm full of crap, then you should be really repulsed by most everyone who posts on this forum.
    With all due respect.

    I know but there are so damned few people I really respect around here and I sure hate it when one falls off the "respectable" wagon. On the other hand, even when I'm trying to engage in cordial debates my posts are usually taken by the far right as attacks. I'm damned when I do insult them and I'm damned when I don't.

    I've been spending less and less time here. I started a yahoo list that has nearly reached 300 members in the last 2 weeks alone. LOL, it helps that I have a celebrity on the list. But it's a lot more fun for me because it's positive, not negative vibes and more in keeping with what I like to do, help people. So, there are only a few threads that I've already posted on that I continue to keep up with but only half heartedly. It's the same topics, just a different day and pretty much the same outcome and predictable.

    Politics gets kind of boring after awhile. I hate seeing you act like a moron though. You are too intelligent for that kind of behavior.

    Re: "Secure America’s Borders Now" Tour - Take Action!

    Ah, u r welcome, USNavySubSailor. I have a lot of respect, too, for the Minutemen.

    I like this article, taken from their site at http://minutemanhq.com/bf/

    (especially after reading about the turmoil and headaches experienced by U.S. landowners on the border - on another thread)

    MINUTEMEN TO BUILD ARIZONA-MEXICO BORDER FENCE

    (PHOENIX, AZ) April 20, 2006 – Chris Simcox, President of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (“MCDC”), today announced plans by the MCDC to work with local Arizona land owners to build border security fencing on private land along the border with Mexico.

    At present, six private land owners have partnered with the Minutemen for the commencement of construction of border fencing on their land. Surveillance cameras on the fencing will be monitored via computer by registered Minutemen across the country. We have chosen a fence design that is based on the Israeli fences in Gaza and on the West Bank that have cut terrorist attacks there by 95% or more. In order to be effective, a fence should not be easy to compromise by climbing over it with a ladder, cutting through it with wire cutters, ramming it with a vehicle, or tunneling under it undetected. No fence can be a 100% impenetrable barrier—but a good design will be time-consuming enough to get through that Border Patrol agents can be alerted to get to a point of attempted intrusion before the intrusion can be completed. We thank Colin Hanna and We Need A Fence.com for the design concept.

    Simcox says those involved in the planning hope to keep costs near $150 per foot.

    Two construction companies to date have offered to inaugurate groundbreaking, coordinate volunteer construction crews and donate the use of the necessary heavy construction equipment.

    The groundbreaking will begin in Arizona on Memorial Day weekend, unless in the interim President Bush deploys National Guard and reserve troops to immediately secure the out-of-control southern border.

    The fencing will be built with privately donated funds, engineering and labor and will be used as an example to educate the public about the feasibility and efficacy of fencing to secure America’s borders from illegal incursion by aliens and international criminal cartels. A non-profit organization dedicated specifically to this purpose will facilitate and administer donations for construction of the fence. Monetary and in-kind contributions for this effort will go directly into building materials for this private, volunteer fencing project.

    Simcox issued the following statement on the MCDC border fence project:

    “President Bush once said he would not wait on events to act to protect our country. He has been president for over five years, and still he has not acted to secure our territorial frontier, even as his administration admits the United States government does not have operational control of our borders.

    “On Memorial Day weekend, the American people will exercise their God-given rights to protect their lives and property by initiating construction of fencing along the border on private land unless President Bush immediately deploys National Guard and/or reserve troops along the breadth of the Southwestern border line with Mexico, thereby retaking the region from the international criminal cartels who presently are in operational control of the border. Additional support is available from military units presently training to guard the borders in other countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan and they should immediately relocate their training to the Southwestern border.

    “The existing border crisis is a dereliction of duty by those entrusted with American security and sovereignty, leaving America vulnerable to terrorist infiltration and an unprecedented crime wave caused by drug smugglers, rapists, thieves, human traffickers and murderers who currently cross our border at will.

    “President Bush and Congress have taxed the wages of the American people to pay for the protection of our country, and expended those dollars to subsidize millions of low-wage illegal workers with housing, education, medical care, and welfare benefits. Yet even the most basic level of national territorial integrity requires that our elected representatives secure the border. Should they continue to refuse to do their Constitutional duty, the Minutemen will again step into the breach and commence building the required border barriers on private land and with private donations.

    “Should President Bush and Congress fail to fulfill their oaths of office, and meet their Constitutional obligation to protect these United States from invasion, we, the sovereign people of the United States, having suffered a long train of abuses at the hand of a willfully insolent government, do hereby declare that these States ought, should and will be protected by American Minutemen.”

    Sincerely,

    Tell me about it. I don't know why I even bother to read these threads anymore. They're starting to turn into negative, degenerate, sometimes racist toned (and I'm sorry to say it's coming from certain members from both sides of the ideology line) flame wars. It's sad, really.

    MCDC is moving forward with plans to build the Minuteman Border Fence. President Bush’s response will not secure the border and the ground breaking will be done on 5/27/2006 Memorial Day weekend in conjunction with the AZ Chapter Memorial weekend border watch operation. We have been working hard to put plans in place for this historic undertaking. Please read the following we have tried to include everything possible for questions about who, what, where and when below.

    Many have talked of building a secure fence between Mexico and the United States. Now Chris Simcox and MCDC is taking action again and doing the job the Federal Government will not do. We are overwhelmed with calls asking:
