While it is certainly good to see ordinary Americans doing what they can to help solve problems and issues that are troubling our country, it is also sad to see the failure of government to act on legitimate concerns. After all, we can certainly agree that one of the most essential concerns and duties of a government is to protect, control, and defend our borders.
Sadly, ever since Obama has taken power, we have seen a continued and concerted effort to weaken our borders. To anyone who has been following recent events, it is clear that Obama is, at best, playing politics with our immigration laws and his policies. At worst, he is looking to weaken our country internally to the point where we become vulnerable to an outside attack or invasion.
Perhaps you have heard of the Minuteman project? I hadn’t until quite recently. This is an organization made up of patriotic Americans who are now looking to put an end to this influx of illegal immigrants. They are converging on the border in an effort to assist security efforts.
This is a response to how Obama has disarmed many of those Border Patrol officers and also simply refused to enforce many of our immigration laws. He has also removed and dwindled resources to the point of near non-existence. Obviously, this allowance of countless illegals into our country is both blatant and intentional. We have seen the photos of how drug smugglers are coming into this country laden with 50+ pound bags of drugs almost at will since Border Patrol officers have been recalled in an effort to man the detention facilities.
Led by Jim Gilchrist, this Minuteman Project is trying to take up the slack presented by the Obama Regime. They have issued a call for volunteers to head to the border and secure it since our lovely community organizer in chief refuses to do so. According to a report from WND:
“What Gilchrist describes as an ‘invasion’ is the flood of illegal aliens, including many children, coming into the United States from Mexico. Many of the illegal aliens are from Central America, where the word is that those who reach the United States gain access to food, housing, health care, and education. Part of the impetus has been identified by Barack Obama critics as the president’s policy of deferring deportation action against young illegal aliens.
Now Gilchrist, in a move that reflects increasing tension over the flood of illegals, some of whom are carrying tuberculosis, polio and other threats to society, has issued a new call for citizen volunteers to join him at the US border with Mexico.”
Interesting events. 3500 true American patriots have already responded to the call. It should be very instructive to see what response is forthcoming from the authorities. It should also be interesting to see what kind of effect they have on the number of illegals crossing into our country.
What do YOU think? Is this a legitimate response to a government that is increasingly out of control and shirking its responsibilities? Should we begin taking the security of our borders and our country more seriously and into our own hands? Might you ever consider joining forces with these 3500 courageous Minutemen?
