Joseph Farah: Why I am a Minuteman

Submitted by Editor on Sun, 07/08/2005 - 00:32

I have been admiring, endorsing, extolling and promoting the Minuteman Project since I first learned of its existence. But this past weekend, I took the next logical step - I joined the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.

That's right, I volunteered to join this courageous band of American patriots as a volunteer border watcher this fall.

A few years ago, I wrote a book called "Taking America Back" http://shop.wnd.com/store/item.asp?ITEM_ID=1052, in which I urged my fellow countrymen to start doing their part as individuals to restore morality, freedom and the rule of law in this nation.

There weren't many spectacular models for what I had in mind back then. But the Minutemen are a perfect example.

It couldn't be more clear that the U.S. government is refusing to enforce the duly enacted immigration laws. We can scream about it. We can cry about it. We can petition. We can write letters to our congressmen. We can write letters to the editor. But, ultimately, four years after our country was attacked by terrorists, I don't think any of these actions are going to force the federal government to take responsibility for border control.

I believe the president, the Congress and many of our elite cultural institutions are hell-bent on following some kind of disastrous master plan that involves forgoing serious border security in favor of multinational agreements that only exacerbate our crisis with illegal migrants invading America.

http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=45352

The passage of the Central America Free Trade Agreement is just the latest example of this misguided, unconstitutional policy.

You can agree or disagree with that premise, but there is no denying that the U.S. government refuses, despite an overwhelming demand from the American people, to enforce immigration laws and border security.

There are so many reasons to believe border security is the No. 1 crisis facing America right now:

--It's a matter of national security, because terrorists are infiltrating this country with plans to kill millions of Americans.

http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=45203

--It's a matter of economics, because illegal aliens are taking jobs away from American citizens.

--It's a matter of preserving our American culture and language.

--It's a matter of safety, because illegal aliens are disproportionately responsible for crime.

--It's a matter of preserving the rule of law, because if the government picks and chooses which laws will be enforced, the law becomes meaningless.

--It's a matter of preserving U.S. sovereignty, because if borders don't mean anything, we cease to be a nation.

--It's a matter of accountability and respect for the will of the people, because if elected officials don't listen, our experiment in representative government fails.

I believe the Minutemen represent our last line of defense in preserving freedom and self-government in America.

It's that simple.

We can't afford to allow the Minutemen to fail.

Ultimately, in a country in which we still theoretically believe in a government of the people, by the people and for the people, the government must be forced - kicking and screaming if necessary - to accept its responsibility in enforcing the laws.

Only a massive outpouring of support for the Minutemen will make that happen.

It's time to take a stand. The hour is late. This country doesn't have much time left to reverse its self-destructive course.

The Minutemen will be taking action again this fall - with plans much bigger than anything yet undertaken.

The plan is to shut down both the Mexican and Canadian borders to illegal alien traffic for at least a limited period of time with a volunteer, citizen army to support the undermanned, outgunned, under-funded Border Patrol professionals.

I understand that not everyone is in a position to do what I plan to do - go to the border to put my body on the line with the Minuteman heroes. Some of you can.

It's time to report for duty.

Maybe you can't take time off from work to join us. But everyone can support this action with money, with prayers, with political support.

I urge you to do so right now.

My response to the minute men - - A. Smith

Submitted by Anonymous on Wed, 28/03/2007 - 15:24.

The first thing you need to do as a "American" is read The Declaration of Independence.
Educate yourself - immigrants are not just Mexicans, there are thousands of Asians, and Europeans coming into this country everyday!
In response to your comments which are not backed up with solid facts:

--It's a matter of national security, because terrorists are infiltrating this country with plans to kill millions of Americans.

Response: Well that's odd, I have never heard of a Mexican immigrant coming across the border and killing millions of people. In my research the terrorist have legally migrated into the states and some have even worked in the government.

--It's a matter of economics, because illegal aliens are taking jobs away from American citizens.

Response: Well the last time I drove by agricultural fields, car washes, or construction sites the only people working there were Mexican and Central Americans.
And asking for money in the streets!! Well till today I have never seen a Mexican or Central American asking for money on the streets, but I have sure seen plenty of US Citizens with good health and Social Security asking for money on the streets.
There are millions, billions of dollars coming into the states that illegals have contributed for many many years(which is never mentioned) and as tax payers they have been denied the right to survival.

--It's a matter of preserving our American culture and language.

Response: What culture? It is known that America is made up of a combination of cultures. If you recall we migrated from across the ocean to become free from the crown. We murdered thousands of Native Indians (including Mexican Indians), converted them to our religion and created a law that was in our benefit.

--It's a matter of safety, because illegal aliens are disproportionately responsible for crime.

Response: Well the last time I checked the the amount of sexual predators in the states, 85% were all Americans. The more factual reason why there is so much crime is that education and the economy have not been stable and therefore this has affected the cities increasing crime and the need to burglarise to survive.

--It's a matter of preserving the rule of law, because if the government picks and chooses which laws will be enforced, the law becomes meaningless.

Response: For years the government has known that illegals come into this country to work, the only reason that it is talked about so much recently is because there is an over population of immigrants. They have always accepted immigrants because they are cheap labor, many congressmen and political people have used their services as maids, as babysitters, as the gardener, and many other low paying jobs. It is well known that thousands of immigrants have been exploited and sometimes have worked for no pay.

--It's a matter of preserving U.S. sovereignty, because if borders don't mean anything, we cease to be a nation.

Response: How can we be a United Nation if we can't even mind our own business. How dare we impose segregation and demand borders if we don't respect international law and invade other countries and their territory. How dare we impose new law and decide the lives of humans and try to restructure a community that is not our community. What are we doing in Iraq?

--It's a matter of accountability and respect for the will of the people, because if elected officials don't listen, our experiment in representative government fails.

Response: That's right! It is a matter of respect. Respect to all tax paying Americans that have the same right illegal or legal.

Something needs to be done, I agree. But this is not the way. I strongly suggest to create a structured process on becoming a legal Resident of the US. The applicant must show the strong will of becoming an American by learning the language, learning the history, willing to contribute to the country because the country is contributing to them. Show no past criminal activity, proof that they are willing to contribute to the economy.

The government needs make an application for Residence available to immigrants that have been here for at least 10 years. If they have been here for so long then they should have the right to call the US their home. I don't agree with an Amnesty because it is not fair for all the people that have been waiting in line.

The new immigrants coming within 5 years should be able to apply and participate only as Temporary workers and must migrate and show proof of mobility to qualify for the 10 year minimum resident application. We can't just say stop coming and lets send everyone back. Since we have allowed them to come in and have never restricted employers for so many years, I think we have some fault and responsibility in this overflow.

But they are not animals and should not be treated like so.
