The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps has continued to grow, despite the efforts of many in the mainstream media and from left leaning organizations to characterize it as a violent, racist organization of would-be vigilantes.

Nothing could be further from the truth.  The Groups Mission statement says the following;

It is the mission of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps to see the borders and coastal boundaries of the United States secured against the unlawful and unauthorized entry of all individuals, contraband, and foreign military. We will employ all means of civil protest, demonstration, and political lobbying to accomplish this goal.

“We demand border security, enforce our immigration laws, and make sure you hold people who hire illegal immigrants accountable,” said MCDC national executive director Al Garza.

Minuteman membership has been growing nationally recently, with hundreds of new members added in the last three months, according to Garza.

A new chapter is starting in Colorado with a new-member meeting November 17, and the group now has some form of representation in nearly every state with a total of more than 9,000 members, Garza said.

Part of what the Minuteman Organization has been able to accomplish is increasing awareness of the problems associated with illegal immigration and as a result forty-three states enacted 182 immigration-related laws.  

What they stand for has absolutely nothing to do with race, politics or ethnicity. It has everything to do with protecting the national security of this country, nothing more, and certainly nothing less.
