Air Date: July 30, 2014
Host: Vic Eliason
Guest: Jim Gilchrist
Jim Gilchrist is the co-founder and president of the Minuteman Project an organization that concerns itself with enforcing existing immigration law. Jim is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and recipient of the Purple Heart for wounds sustained while serving with an infantry unit in Vietnam. He is a passionate defender of the First Amendment and the U.S. Constitution and an avid supporter of law enforcement organizations.
Recent news accounts have been telling us about poor, homeless children that have been crossing our southern border from Mexico. Vic relayed the latest news indicating that of those crossing the border, only 25% are actually children.
In response, Jim discussed the reactivation of the Minuteman Project. This reactivation is being executed in honor of President Dwight D. Eisenhower who Jim feels is the only president since his administration to take the enforcement of our immigration laws seriously. Scheduled for May 1st through May 30th, Jim is attempting to create a larger event than the last one that had 1.250 volunteers who worked for 30 days in April of 2005. That version of the project was comprised of 36 makeshift outposts on a 23 mile stretch of the Arizona-Mexico border.
Jim wants this latest effort to parallel the Normandy invasion, hence the name, ‘Operation Normandy’. Over the next 9 months he’ll be working to recruit at least 3,500 non-militia people to join him on the border to cover almost 2,000 miles from San Diego, California, to Brownsville, Texas, while simultaneously holding protests at all 51 Mexican consulates.
The goal is to bring critical awareness to this issue regarding the 30 million illegal aliens that are currently occupying U.S. territory.
