Local wants to start Minuteman group

WALTON COUNTY— Todd Walker just moved to Walton County, but he’s already getting busy.

Walker is the state director for the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, best known for patrolling the U.S.-Mexican border to prevent illegal immigration, and he’s looking to start a new chapter of the organization right here in Walton.

“We demand our borders are secured and our laws are enforced,” Walker said. “We’re looking for patriots who want to serve our country.”

Walker helped start the first Georgia chapter of the Minuteman group last year and the group has expanded to eight chapters in the state since then. Although Georgia does not share a border with Mexico, Walker said the group could still do much against what he sees as the threat of illegal immigration.

“Every state in the Union is now a border state,” Walker said, but admits the group will not be making more than once a year patrols of the actual border. “In the interior states, we really focus on the legislative side. We do protests and other grassroots politics.”

While the popular image in the media of the Minuteman corps is of men with guns walking along the Mexican border, Walker said the group was simply dedicated to peaceful enforcement of laws.

“We are not vigilantes,” Walker said. “We are vigilant. We observe, we report and we direct the government to the problem.”

Focusing on an “attrition through enforcement” policy that advocates decreasing illegal immigrants through reports to authorities with powers of deportation, Walker said the new chapter would expand the ability to decrease illegal encroachment on American soil — and jobs.

“There’s no such thing as cheap labor,” Walker said about claims that illegal aliens take jobs no one else wants. “That cheap labor is being subsidized by the middle-class citizens. The employees who hire illegal immigrants are taking advantage of the taxpayers.”

Walker said the danger for the average citizen was simply in apathy.

“I knew there was a problem with illegal immigration for a long time, but I didn’t do anything,” Walker said. “When the illegal aliens marched in the streets, carrying foreign flags and demanding rights of citizens of our country, I knew something had to be done.”

So Walker jumped into planning new chapters for the corps, and he is pleased with the progress the group has made.
