Building A Wall

From the Minutemen:

Minuteman Border Fence.


Minuteman Chris Simcox has announced another bold step to STOP THE FLOW of drugs, human trafficking and illegal aliens crossing the border into the United States. After 9/11, when Simcox observed large groups of illegal aliens moving freely through American national parks that border Mexico, he reported it to federal park rangers. Their response: Those are just illegal aliens from Mexico—don’t bother them and they will not bother you. With the smoke and ash from foreign attack upon the twin towers still covering New York City, Chris saw clearly that our borders must be secured.

Many have talked of building a security fence between Mexico and the United States. Now Chris Simcox and the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (MCDC) are taking action and once again doing the job our federal government will not do. Americans who understand the urgency are swamping our phone lines and web site asking: What can I do to help right NOW?

This fence proposal is not a new idea. Colin Hanna at We Need A Fence has proposed a superlative design, and now the Minutemen of MCDC are making it a reality. At present, six private land owners are partnering with the Minutemen to commence construction of border fencing on their land. Surveillance cameras on the fencing will be monitored via computer by registered Minutemen across the country. We have chosen a security design that is based on the Israeli fences in Gaza and on the West Bank that have reduced terrorist attacks there by 95% or more. In order to be effective, a fence should not be easy to compromise by climbing over it with a ladder, cutting through it with wire cutters, ramming it with a vehicle, or tunneling under it undetected. No fence can be a 100% impenetrable barrier—but a good design will be time-consuming enough to breach that Border Patrol agents can be alerted and arrive at a point of attempted incursion before any illicit crossing can be completed.

Simcox says fence designers are working to keep costs near $150 per foot.
The groundbreaking will begin in Arizona on Memorial Day weekend , just 30 days from now, unless in the interim President Bush deploys National Guard and reserve troops to immediately secure the out-of-control southern border.

“We the People” have mobilized to secure the border, and there is no greater force on earth than free Americans determined to protect our liberty. In the face of their failure, we will do the work that Congress refuses to do!

Minuteman Civil Defense Corp welcomes all patriots to this Border Fence operation who are willing to be part of its creation, planning and implementation.

Minutemen from across America have already united at unprecedented levels behind the vision of Chris Simcox and the strong, bold leadership of Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.

Minutemen are donating time, equipment, land and funds knowing that they can successfully build a fence of over 2000 miles in length one foot at a time and doing the hard work to secure America today and into the future.

MCDC will continue to man our posts at the border and watch and report as the Minuteman Border Fence is built. No one operation alone will secure the border. MCDC has shown that illegal aliens can be stopped from jumping our border simply by dedicated volunteers sitting in lawn chairs for 30 days at a time.

A Minuteman Border Fence will help protect all of America 365 days a year.

The Minuteman volunteers of MCDC continue to prove their character and patriotism by upholding the highest ethical standards, and by adhering to rigorous Standard Operating Procedures that protect every human person at our chaotic and violent borders. They have shown that the border can be secured while still demonstrating compassion for the humanity of those from around the world who have felt compelled to leave their homes and break our laws in desperate pursuit of a better life.

American citizens have caught the spirit of Chris Simcox and the Minuteman Movement, and are making this THEIR OWN Minuteman Border Fence.

The Minuteman Border Fence is a gift to America, sorely needed by our citizens. A Minutewoman who lives near the southern border describes what her life is like and why she volunteers. “I go out every night in my area to watch and report illegal aliens and their criminal activities to the Border Patrol. Why do I do this? I do it because I am your good neighbor—and as your good neighbor, I am putting my life on the line to protect you from having to live the way I do. By this I mean no drug deals in your backyard, no broken down fences, no marauders on your property, no sleepless nights and no terrorists to perpetrate another 9/11. I do this for all the people! The Minuteman Border Fence will be built by with the hard work and support of many but it will stand for generations as a gift from one set of neighbors to another who truly desire to see America strong and safe, and so are willing to take their part in the securing of America.

Donations are being collected in a segregated non-profit account, exclusively to build the Minuteman Border Fence. The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps is announcing to the U.S. Government and to the world that where many elected officials fear to uphold their oath to defend and protect our nation’s security, sovereignty and prosperity, American citizens will take the responsibility and secure our borders NOW!
