Dozens of minutemen will mobilize in an effort to combat international act of aggression by drug cartels…
TUSCON, AZ—The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (MCDC) will increase its activity today on the United States-Mexico Border with dozens of members expected to stand alongside National Guard troops in response to the drug cartels who last evening incited acts of aggression that caused these troops to retreat, since they have not been provided the appropriate means for defending our country. For the last few years, MCDC members have assisted Border Patrols agents apprehend over 10,000 illegal crossers, many of whom were transporting drugs, and have since witnessed the west desert corridor become the busiest in the Tucson Sector for marijuana and contraband seizures.
“I am not at all shocked by this incursion; our President and federal government have sent these lawbreakers a message of immunity if caught, and a helping hand to accomplish their criminal goals,” stated Chris Simcox, founder and president of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. “Our nation is being overrun by the influx of illegal aliens as well as drug cartels that show no signs of fear in crossing our border and I call upon our federal government to do the job they were elected to do, and refrain from supporting the open border advocates.”
MCDC has been conducting border watching activities since 2002, while pressuring the President and Congress to increase funding for border patrol activities, but due to the inaction of the President and Congress, began volunteering their time and money in order to build a security fence on the United States-Mexico border. This year with private donations from thousands of citizens nationally, MCDC will build a fence along the border with the fiber optic mesh produced by FOMGuard, USA, also currently in use on U.S. military installations, the DMZ in Korea and the West Bank in Israel.
Simcox continues: “The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps has taken notice of this incursion and will no longer tolerate our federal government’s refusal to secure our borders. The deployment of more National Guard is not only mandatory, it is the duty of our elected officials to enforce immigration laws and guarantee our public safety, but the Minutemen will gladly volunteer their time until our government gets its priorities straight.”
The Minutemen Civil Defense Corps (MCDC) is a peaceful, law-abiding and citizen-led initiative organized to stand watch at our borders, report illegal activities to the proper authorities, and build border fencing on private lands using private donations. Additionally, MCDC seeks to urge local and federal officials to enforce our laws in order to keep our families and country safe. MCDC conducts border watch operations that assist the activities of the U.S. Border Patrol, reports employers of illegal aliens and keeps tax dollars from being used for illegal alien benefits.
