PHOENIX, AZ (June 15, 2006) – Chris Simcox, President of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (“MCDC”), released the following statement in response to the reported “endorsement” by the Minutemen of Rep. Mike Pence’s so-called “compromise” amnesty proposal:

“The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps in no way, shape, manner or form endorses Rep. Mike Pence’s current amnesty proposal in the U.S. House of Representatives. 

“The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps and its leadership represent the U.S. citizen volunteers who from their first operations in Tombstone AZ five long years ago, have stood vigilant mission after mission on the front lines of our broken borders.  By the hundreds, and now thousands nationwide, with cleared background checks and a rigorously enforced field SOP (standard operating procedure), we as free Americans are acting to secure our nation’s frontiers from foreign invasion in the face of overt federal government failure to do so.  We are backed today by over 180,000 private donors and subscribed volunteers nationwide—and growing—and we would like to reassure the American people that while some in our grassroots movement have publicly expressed their own personal opinions, the official position of MCDC is unequivocal:  Rep. Pence’s amnesty proposal is a sell-out; it is a politically opportunistic betrayal of the U.S. House’s stalwart action in HR 4437 to protect and defend these United States with ‘Border Security First,’ as is the Congress’ duty under the U.S. Constitution; and it is utterly rejected by the Minutemen.

“There is only one Minuteman organization standing operational watch nationwide at our borders and only one Minuteman organization building fences along the United States border with Mexico on private land using private donations.  Others who tout the Minuteman name may support legislation that fecklessly undermines HR 4437 and grants amnesty to illegal aliens.  But I can assure you that the premiere Minuteman group doing the actual hard work at the borders, with the firm support of the American people, does not and will not endorse any form of amnesty, no matter what kind of false advertising it is wrapped in, no matter which side of the political aisle it rears its ugly head.

“Make no mistake, Rep. Mike Pence has sold out the American people and the House Republican leadership in his attempt to curry favor with the Rockefeller wing and the morally irresponsible ‘free-marketeers’ of the  Republican Party.  They wish to award their big donor, open border lobbyists with an unending supply of slave-wage labor and ethically unaccountable global marketplaces—all subsidized by the American taxpayer, and all at the expense of our national sovereignty, security and prosperity.  The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps will not sell out the American people to these special interests.  We will continue at our posts until this nation’s borders are actually secured.  And we send notice to the U.S. Congress, as the American Peoples’ House—Stand Firm! We expect no less than that you each uphold the sworn oath you have taken to protect and defend America!”
