My second book published in 2006 was “Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America’s Borders,” a book I co-authored with Jim Gilchrist, the founder of the Minuteman Project.
The book sounded the alarm that opening America’s southern border with Mexico to illegal immigration was a sure formula for disaster, allowing hoards of unvetted line jumpers to enter the country without screening out hardened criminals, dangerous gang members, or drug cartel operatives.
The book explored the radical leftist ideologies including La Raza, a socialist gang dedicated to returning large sections of America’s southwest to a mythical ancient indigenous nation called Aztlán. The book celebrated Jim Gilchrist’s service as a United States Marine Corp veteran who fought in Vietnam.
While writing the book, I spent time with Jim Gilchrist on the southern border interviewing the men and women who were freely devoting their time as civilians to assist the Border Patrol, serving as modern-day Minutemen in the tradition of the armed civilian colonists during the Revolutionary War, two centuries later dedicated to preserving and protecting the nation at a time when “New World Order” globalists are pushing the United States to surrender American sovereignty to an international agenda.
