Illegal Crossings on U.S.-Mexico Border Decline Due to Citizen Patrols

TOMBSTONE, AZ—Chris Simcox, President of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps (MCDC) is pleased to announce that for the third consecutive year MCDC border patrols have served as a deterrence to Mexican citizens illegally residing in the United States who attempt to cross the U.S.-Mexico Border in order to spend the holiday season with relatives in Mexico with the expectation that they can illegally re-cross the border again into America during January. These individuals who violate U.S. laws when they cross the border illegally, flood back into Mexico through legal border checkpoints throughout the month of December, and usually return to the United States clandestinely after the Feast of the Epiphany in January — many returning with the intent to flood our communities with illegal drugs and wrongfully benefit from U.S. taxpayer-funded social services.

"We are pleased that thousands of U.S. citizens are volunteering their time to assist us in monitoring these illegal crossings year-round. Our citizen border watches have proven to serve as a deterrence to the Mexican citizens who thwart our laws and threaten the security of our families, communities and nation," stated Chris Simcox, President of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps. "It is essential that the Minutemen continue to monitor our borders until we can trust our government to properly enforce our nation's laws."

The border watch activities of the MCDC are proof that our nation must be concerned with border security first, not amnesty laws set for passage in the Congress next session. While an estimated 12-30 million illegals currently reside in the United States, many employed in a pool of slave-wage labor and drug-trafficking, most enter our country through the same gaps in our border security that are being exploited by individuals from enemy terrorist states seeking to cause irreparable harm to America.

Simcox continues, "It has become necessary for a self-governing and sovereign people to take the initiative in order to secure our border, and therefore I encourage all those who can participate, to join me on the border this holiday season."

As of yesterday, MCDC has assisted with the apprehension of 10,404 illegal entrants, and made 283 life-saving rescues of alien migrants stranded in life-threatening circumstances.

The Minutemen Civil Defense Corps (MCDC) is a peaceful, law-abiding 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.
