Al Garza - National Executive Director- Minuteman Civil Defense Corps

Al Garza is the National Executive Director of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps., a citizen political action group that assists Border Patrol in defending our southern and northern border with Mexico. He is a Marine combat veteran of the Vietnam conflict, with a background in hand to hand combat, weapons training and military police while stationed at Camp Pendleton.

Al retired in 2003 after 32 years as a private investigator in Southern California. He currently lives in Arizona. He joined the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. shortly after retiring due to the needless deaths in the desert and the lawlessness and anarchy on a sovereign border of the United States.

Al has diligently dedicated three years to the minutemen in a crusade to set a new standard for what it means to be an American. While our elected officials, non-chalantly, regard the minutemen as vigilantes, the minutemen are busy saving lives and reporting suspicious illegal activity to the proper authorities, an endeavor attributed to one of President Bush's eloquent speeches. Without one incident of violence the Minutemen have peacefully turned over 6 thousand illegal entrants to Border Patrol and saved 300 lives. Al believes in the rule of law and demands that people enter our nation legally and prove they have a productive reason for entering our country.

Al has held leadership positions in various Veteran organizations and assisted youth clubs as a Big Brother, counselor and advisor. Al has challenged our elected officials to take their oath seriously as he has, to serve and protect American Citizens. He says our government fears being called playground names and shows weakness by ignoring one of the most important issues affecting the future of our nation and the taxpayers will no longer tolerate the hypocrisy.
