After their successful campaign against illegal aliens on the Us border of Arizona, the Minute men are coming to Tennessee.
Those behind the effort say volunteers will patrol local businesses, looking for employers that are hiring people who’ve illegally crossed the border.
The US Boarder Patrol says they’ve never endorsed the activities of the Minutemen in Arizona, stressing that it’s the Border Patrol’s job to catch illegal immigrants.
Some in East Tennessee say these kinds of tactics amount to begging for trouble.
“I worry they’ll come up here and start some kind of chaos,” says Hispanic activist Luis Crespo.
WHAT PART ABOUT ILLEGAL DO YOU NOT GET MR. CRESPO?
It is sad that it takes the actions of caring Americans rather than politicians, both Republican & Democrat, to secure our borders. This has nothing to do with anti-Hispanic or anti-immigrant hostilities on the part of Americans. It is about ANTI-ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. It is sad that people opposed to the Minute men feel the necessity to harass them rather than have any form of constructive criticism. All this even after 9-11. Illegal immigrants and anyone for that matter crossing US borders freely. Have we learned nothing from the deaths of thousands of Americans?
Despite the objections, the Minutemen are moving forward. They hope to have as many as 600 volunteers in just two months.
These are the actions by Americans that represent what our country is all about. Civic responsibility to do the right thing for America rather than what both political parties seem to care about and that is to capture the Hispanic vote.
