STATEMENT ON ELECTION RESULTS

Duplicity, Mixed Messages on Illegal Immigration Sinks GOP

PHOENIX, AZ (November 8, 2006) – Chris Simcox, President of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (“MCDC”), released the following statement on the election results:

“What we witnessed yesterday in America’s elections was a populist revolt. With the issues of national security and ethical questions looming over the elections, the GOP leadership gave voters nothing to actually vote for. The crises before us of border security and the illegal immigration invasion could have given a strong GOP agenda a crucial electoral edge, yet the President choose to send a contrary message to voters the week before the elections, stating that he needed a Republican Congress for his amnesty disguised as a guest worker ‘path to citizenship’ to move forward. He completely undermined Republican candidates struggling to place the safety and security of American families first. This is borne out by the fact that Republican candidates overall lost yesterday, but candidates running as conservatives won the day. Further, ballot measures restricting access and benefits for illegal aliens passed overwhelmingly.

“The American people understand that talk of amnesty by some in our government as our wide open borders are compromised by thousands daily is irresponsible and causes a tsunami of illegal entry into this country by those seeking to get in under the wire to take advantage of the offer of amnesty. As these numbers grow in volume and scope, the international criminal cartels gain even more control over our border frontiers, the black market underground swells with document fraud and identity theft, and the drug and contraband turf wars accelerate. More gang violence erupts in our cities by murderous thugs such as MS-13, the ruthless gang of self-professed friends of al Qaeda who, by our own government’s estimation, number in the tens of thousands in cities across America. National security and public safety demand that we make securing our borders combined with serious interior enforcement the first and most urgent priority of Homeland Security. This is not rocket science. It is time for our politicians to hear what the people are saying to them: Secure our borders now—no amnesty.

“The rejection of the mixed messages and playing politics with our national security should serve as a wake-up call to the GOP and to those Democrats who were elected under the conservative banner. The American people are fed up with political games at the expense of their safety, security and sovereignty.”
