Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist and WND columnist Jerome R. Corsi will sign copies of their new book “Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America’s Borders” at Los Angeles-area and San Diego Borders bookstores this week.
Corsi and Gilchrist are fresh from speaking at a rally at the Mexican border to kick off a new campaign by the Minuteman Project called “Operation Sovereignty.”
The Minuteman Project’s Operation Sovereignty is a civilian border patrol action scheduled to run until election day in November.
Operation Sovereignty expects to draw hundreds of Minutemen volunteers to the Texas border around Laredo over the next two months.
“We want to demonstrate once again,” Gilchrist told the kickoff rally, “that observation and reporting by civilian patrols is enough to stop the flow of illegal immigrants across our borders.”
Among the shockers delivered by Gilchrist’s and Corsi’s new book:
- The real number of illegal aliens in the country is not 12 million, which the federal government claims, but closer to 30 million.
- The IRS – famous for hounding citizens who make honest mistakes on their returns – has paid out $10 billion in refunds and credits to illegal aliens who used fraudulent Social Security numbers, and it has no intention of going after those who’ve made fraudulent claims.
- Over 3,000 illegal aliens suspected of murdering Americans have fled to Mexico, where they often live openly and without fear of arrest.
“Minutemen” features a foreword by Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., the chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus and the author of a brand new book himself, “In Mortal Danger,” 16 pages of shocking pictures, and a link to exclusive online content.
