Senate Judiciary Hearings on Illegal Immigration Today

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

MINUTEMEN URGE DECLARATION OF STATE OF EMERGENCY, CALL FOR IMMEDIATE NATIONAL GUARD MOBILIZATION

NATIONAL SECURITY AT STAKE

TOMBSTONE, AZ (October 18, 2005) – Chris Simcox, president of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (“MCDC”), today urged Congress and the Bush administration to follow their Constitutional oaths to protect the country from foreign invasion and assault by securing our porous borders immediately.

Simcox issued the following statement on the occasion of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on immigration today:

“For four long years after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, President Bush and Congress have neglected to take serious measures to secure America’s borders from infiltration by terrorists, violent criminals, smugglers and traffickers in human misery. The bills being discussed today are concerned with appeasing every possible interest other than the security of this sovereign nation. The American people have woken up to the crisis on our borders—but it seems that Washington has not.

“Every year, millions of illegal aliens cross our borders—only a fraction of who are identified or apprehended. God only knows whether any terrorists carrying biological, chemical or nuclear agents have snuck into our country, because the federal government surely does not.

“Because of the failure of the federal government to secure the borders, governors of states that share their borders with Mexico have taken extraordinary measures to secure their citizens from the dangers posed by unlawful border crossers.

“The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps has recruited over 4,200 citizen volunteers to participate in its border watch patrols this month in states along both the northern and southern borders. These citizens are standing in the breach while Congress and the President play politics.

“A state of emergency needs to be declared on the borders and the National Guard deployed in sufficient numbers to stop the flood of illegal border crossings. To do anything less is to continue tempting fate with the lives of American citizens.”

MCDC is conducting a month-long border watch program this October called “Secure Our Borders.” More than four thousand trained Minuteman volunteers will participate in non-confrontational border watch efforts on America's northern and southern borders. Minutemen act as extra eyes and ears for the Border Patrol and will report directly to authorities any sightings of border crossings at other than legal ports of entry.
