Palatine Teaparty opposes Illinois DREAM Act (for completely wrong reasons) - 05/09/11

... Party to that of the Chicago Minuteman Project (link). The CMP makes some of the points above (although they don't highlight the first as much as they should), and they also spend time discussing the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights. Their approach could use some work (and the question authority plan), but - unlike the teaparty group - theirs is fundamentally a mainstream, pro...

Sandeep Gopalan misleads, shows fallacy of comprehensive immigration reform - 01/13/10

... collaborateurs could catch the Minuteman Project or the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps in illegal activities. 2. He says "Many states in that country have passed harsh laws to take enforcement action against illegals, most notably the border state of Arizona. Backed by aggressive local police officials, these laws are used to harass both locals and foreigners. Employers, landlords, hospitals, and...

Harvard Undergraduate Legal Committee wimps out over Jim Gilchrist appearance, not smart enough to debate - 10/16/09

Jim Gilchrist of the Minuteman Project was scheduled to speak at a Harvard University immigration conference tomorrow. However, he's now been disinvited by the group that organized the event, the Harvard Undergraduate Legal Committee (hcs.harvard.edu/~legalcom). Per them (link): "Mr. Gilchrist’s participation in the conference on the behalf of the Minutemen Project was not compatible with...

Lawrence Downes /NYT: strongly supports illegal activity, has mental issues - 03/19/09

Lawrence Downes of the New York Times offers "Notes From the Immigration Battlefield" (link). Like his earlier article (here, update here), it shows that he very strongly supports illegal immigration and thereby all of its associated illegal activity. And, the article shows that he has mental issues. Specifically, he views white people (presumably including himself) as inherently bad, and those...

Minutemen protest Joe Baca, get smeared; what they should have done - 12/19/08

From this: Members of the Minuteman Project on Thursday protested in front of Rep. Joe Baca's district office, urging the Democratic congressman to oppose a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. A small group carried "No Amnesty" and "No Guest Worker Program" signs and waved American flags during the protest at E and Second streets... The impact this will have will be small. Perhaps some...

Dana Milbank lies, misleads, smears (Tancredo) - 12/23/07

... support of the border-vigilante Minuteman Project. The support only came from Jim Gilchrist himself, not any groups using that name. After discussing an admittedly stupid video that Tancredo released (youtube.com/watch?v=n5GUCQAdlxg), it's Milbank's turn to admit why he's the one who's angry: "It's beyond anybody's wildest expectations that we have been able to, with the help of America, really...

National Latino Congreso: "No Human Being is Illegal", Nativo Lopez, Gil Cedillo, Kucinich, Cuban Five, Fairness Doctrine, and more! - 10/07/07

The 2nd annual "National Latino Congreso" - a meeting of hundreds of "Latino organizational leaders, elected officials, and activists at all levels" is currently underway in Los Angeles (latinocongreso.org). Yesterday, Anna Gorman of the Los Angeles Times offered a whitewashed report here. Let's take a look at the groups involved and some of the loony resolutions that were passed. Expect the MSM...

Kyrsten Sinema anti-Minuteman Project bill voted down - 02/05/07

... that would have outlawed the Minuteman Project and similar groups and have them labeled "domestic terrorists". (That earned her the prestigious honor of being selected for our first "Working For Mexico, Or Just Acts Like It?" post). As could be expected, it was voted down in their Homeland Security and Property Rights Committee by a vote of 7 to 3. All the Republicans voted against it, and they...

WFMOJALI: Kyrsten Sinema (Minutemen as "domestic terrorists") - 01/19/07

... team which were "monitoring" the Minuteman Project, during which she tried to claim that Sean Hannity - there for a photo op - was an illegal alien because he'd stepped over the border. He'd actually stepped into a yard-wide buffer zone. Apparently not forgiving or forgetting the ACLU being shown to be the illegal immigration-supporting fools that they are, she's now back with HB 2286. It would...

Gustavo Torres - 11/22/06

... this: "We are going to target Minuteman Project members in a specific way... [by taking their own pictures]... Then we are going to picket their houses, and the schools of their kids, and go to their work... If they are going to do this to us, we are going to respond in the same way, to let people know their neighbors are extremists, that they are anti-immigrant. They are going to hear from us...

Arnoldo Torres, Arnold Schwarzenegger's Latino outreach director - 11/21/06

... as obviously, supporting the Minuteman Project or Proposition 187 is not "racist". In fact, a majority of Hispanics supported the latter two months before the election. Supporting those is indeed "racist" if you redefine the term to mean "opposition to illegal immigration and/or the far-left." LULAC was at one time apparently a patriotic organization that supported assimilation. In recent...

More on the Chicago NAIR meeting from Workers World - 08/22/06

Around August 11, a few hundred illegal immigration supporters met near Chicago and created the "National Alliance for Immigrant Rights". One of their leaders is an official with Mexico's PRD party, and the article "Immigrant rights activists meet near Chicago" from Workers World has a little bit more on who's involved and what they want: workers.org/2006/us/immigrant-rights-0824 Of course, it...

Minuteman leader reportedly attacked in Lake Forest, CA - 08/14/06

... national rally coordinator for The Minuteman Project co-founded by Jim Gilchrist, was attacked at a day labor site in Lake Forest, California over the weekend. While Herrera was exercising his First Amendment right to speak out against illegal immigration, he was run over by an irate truck driver not once, but twice...

Is Michelle Nichols of Reuters a liar? - 07/27/06

... "racists go home." Members of the Minuteman Project, which patrols the U.S.-Mexican border for illegal immigrants, pushed and shoved members of an immigrant rights group that showed up at the event. Jim Gilchrist and Jerome Corsi, authors of "Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders," were whisked away when some immigrant rights supporters broke through a police barrier and...

ADL's (latest) smear job on Minuteman Project - 04/27/06

My sentiments exactly: ADL Engages In McCarthyism What else can you their report entitled "Extremists Declare 'Open Season' on Immigrants: Hispanics Target of Incitement and Violence"? It goes on about Nazi and Klan violence and racist rhetoric – and having set the bait, pull a big switch and tar non-racist, non-violent opponents of illegal immigration as "extremists" and "vigilantes". Note...

Casa de Maryland might soon get big surprise - 02/25/06

... recently said this about the Minuteman Project members who've been monitoring illegal labor hiring halls: "We are going to target [the MMP members] in a specific way... [by taking their own pictures]... Then we are going to picket their houses, and the schools of their kids, and go to their work... If they are going to do this to us, we are going to respond in the same way, to let people know...

Loony Texans oppose Minutemen; Perry offers lukewarm support - 09/24/05

... borders types that oppose the Minuteman Project. Those include Sen. Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa, D-McAllen and 10 other state senators as well as U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, Texas Democrat. Plus: In Brownsville, the Cameron County Commissioners Court unanimously passed a resolution opposing civilian border patrols, citing respect for immigrants, confidence in federal law enforcement and a shared...

Memo to Dan Walters: there's more to it than just the illegal aliens - 07/21/05

Dan Walters has a rather unremarkable column entitled "Debate over immigration never ends" that roundsup the attempts by Americans to end illegal immigration, and the attempts by those on the other side to encourage more of it. It includes the following: To many, illegal immigrants are simply human beings seeking to better themselves by filling difficult, low-paying jobs in agriculture,...
