[img]graemlins/salute.gif[/img] The British aren't the only ones with wide-open borders, and the resulting problems of illegal immigration. Let me give you just one example of what we're up against.
In Tombstone, Arizona -- just 20 miles from the U.S. southern border -- Homeland Security has several checkpoints on roads going north. This past Thursday and Friday night, those Homeland Security checkpoints were CLOSED.
You read that right -- the checkpoints were CLOSED, right after the major terrorist bombing in London! Half a mile from one of the closed checkpoints, several Minuteman volunteers and reporters riding with them watched as a car came and picked up a group of people that were hiding in a gulley. The Minutemen called in the Border Patrol, who pulled the car and discovered that, lo and behold, it was full of illegal aliens!
The Minutemen were on duty, while the folks from Homeland Security had gone home for the weekend! But that's nothing new -- Minutemen volunteers are on duty EVERY SINGLE NIGHT, often under threat of bodily harm from the relentless traffickers. And, of course, also under the relentless harassment and threat of multiple lawsuits from pro-illegal immigration groups like the ACLU.
Over FOUR THOUSAND illegal immigrants pour across America's borders EVERY SINGLE DAY. It is conservatively estimated that there are 10-12 MILLION illegal immigrants living in this country RIGHT NOW. And there's no way to tell who among them is a relatively "peaceful" lawbreaker... or a murderous Islamic terrorist, ready to inflict the next 9/11 or 7/7.
SOMEONE needs to take ACTION to bring attention to our wide-open borders, and SOMEONE needs to do something to STOP the flood of illegal immigration -- and the seditious arms and weapons trafficking it invites.
Well, SOMEONE IS. Last month, Minuteman Civil Defense Corps and Minuteman Project volunteers stationed at watch points along our southern border prevented over 60,000 illegal aliens -- and who knows how many terrorists -- from crossing onto American soil.
As many as 20% of those crossing into U.S. territory illegally have criminal records. The work of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps and the Minuteman Project has kept out tens of thousands of gang members and criminals -- criminals associated with extremely violent international cartels that traffic human beings, arms and drugs -- who would otherwise be walking our streets right now.
The British have no Minutemen. But we do -- and we need YOUR help to expand the effective, organized and disciplined efforts in their border watch operations:
After the terrorist bombings in London, Rush Limbaugh remarked, "You know, the British have an immigration problem over there... That country's borders are wide open, and Islamists have been immigrating in the UK for years, and some of those Islamists are Islamofascists and militant Islamists, terrorists, and it's a large population over there now."
But the Minutemen's effort in American vigilance isn't free. Nothing worthwhile ever is. That's why we need YOUR help RIGHT AWAY, as we expand beyond Arizona to California, Texas and New Mexico on the southern border, and Maine, Vermont, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Idaho and Washington State on the northern border with Canada.
NOTE: MinutemanHQ.com is the new National Organization headquarters for citizen border watch and internal vigilance operations led by the original Minuteman border project founders. It is the only site authorized by Chris Simcox and Jim Gilchrist, who together organized the first Minuteman border watch.

Since Clay Aiken of American Idol has greatly released his music vocal works, I realize the importance of more communication.
