Editorial Reviews

Review

Among other shocking revelations, the book exposes the Mexican government's open complicity in this growing crisis.

Thousands of Minuteman volunteers have undertaken border watch patrols in northern and southern states since the Project was founded in 2004.

The Project's motto is "Americans doing the job that Congress won't." President Bush accused this peaceful group of being "vigilantes."

Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO), Chairman of the 72-member Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus, is an outspoken advocate for immigration reform and will write the book's foreword.

After announcing this book, we received 70+ review requests from media such as the New York Times. This is a hot topic. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders is a first-hand account from the frontlines, and what it says will shock you. Jim Gilchrist teams up with Jerome Corsi, the co-author of Unfit for Command—the book that derailed John Kerry's presidential campaign—to describe in vivid detail how the nation's southern border has disintegrated into a Wild West of human trafficking, drug smuggling, and violent gangs.

But the threat posed by out-of-control illegal immigration extends beyond the border states to the whole republic, warn Gilchrist and Corsi. Readers of this disturbing and timely book will learn how:

- Mexico encourages the mass emigration of millions of impoverished peasants, and why the Mexican government will stop at nothing to keep the border open;

- The Catholic Church uses its power and influence to subvert immigration laws, and why Church leaders are speaking out in favor of amnesty;

- American taxpayers are forced to pay the staggering economic and cultural price tag of illegal immigration, and why our government wants to keep the true costs hidden from the public.

With anti-American protestors taking to the streets to demand citizenship for all illegals, and with the President of the United States himself endorsing open borders, it has never been more critical for American citizens to understand the massive social, economic and security problems caused by illegal immigration. Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders describes those problems with a refreshing combination of facts and straight talk.

Like their Revolutionary War predecessors who defended America against a hostile foreign power, today's Minutemen have risen up to answer their nation's call against another invasion. Minutemen is their story, as well as an urgent call to arms to all of their countrymen.

I highly recommend this fast-moving book.
Duncan Murray
Hooray for Jim Gilchrist and Jerome Corsi for stating so clearly what our so-called "leaders" can't figure out - that we need to impose control on our borders, now!
Flo
First and foremost, this great read brings attention to our lax immigration laws and the elected and appointed public officials responsible for this dilemma.

Having been chased out of a small town in the Midwest due to an influx of illegal aliens hired by local businesses obsessed with cheap labor, I take the illegal immigration issue very seriously. Being sick to death of "press one for English" I also respect what the Minuteman Project has done to publicize this issue and their demands that the government do something meaningful to stop it. I found MINUTEMEN: The Battle to Secure America's Borders to be an excellent overview of the severe economic, social and cultural problems unlimited third-world immigration is causing. When the first world meets the third world, it's not the first world that's uplifted - it's the third world that drags everyone else down to their level, and that's what happening in this country. Hooray for Jim Gilchrist and Jerome Corsi for stating so clearly what our so-called "leaders" can't figure out - that we need to impose control on our borders, now!

These two are true American Patriots. If you are not up on the problem with immigration, illegal and legal, you need to read this book otherwise you are going to wake up one day and wonder what happened.

Big business and the politicians in their pockets are about to take away the way of life we have built for ourselves. It's all about cheap labor, cheap products and the bottom line.

People need to pay particular attention to what is going on with the Security and Prosperity Partnership and the North American Union, this book talks about these hidden agendas which will end in the merger of the United States with Mexico and Cananda. These authors are bringing these programs out of the shadows. Another good read on this topic is "Fighting Immigration Anarchy" by Daniel Sheehy.

After reading this outstanding book, Gilchrist and Corsi bring national awareness and "bring home the bacon" to the serious issue of illegal immigration. First and foremost, this great read brings attention to our lax immigration laws and the elected and appointed public officials responsible for this dilemma.

Who better than Congressman Tom Tancredo who is fighting the good fight regarding illegal immigration to endorse this great book? Americans are losing their country and it's time they stop tolerating the quislings, traitors and spineless sellouts that place "cheap labor" business interests and desperate pandering to illegal aliens ahead of American citizens and legal immigrants.

This book needs to be read by every American citizen and legal immigrant. Not only is it telling... but brings to light what citizens of the United States are up against with a "Do Nothing" Congress. You'll get more than an informative return on your investment when purchasing this book.

This book proves Minutemen are not vigilantes, but are honest patriots trying to wake America up to the huge issues we are facing with our porus borders and illegal immigration. A MUST read for anyone wanting the true story of the failure of our immigration system. America was made great by LEGAL immigration with assimilation!

The Founding Fathers, in their wisdom, felt that their new fledging country would be helpless without the freedom to speak in the arena of ideas. In Jim Gilchrist's "Minutemen", he documents that freedom of speech is only free if the local power agrees with the message. He is shouted down, called vicious and vile names, and denied parade permits for simply trying to tell America they will no longer be a nation without border control.

He outlines at some length the motivations behind the open borders axis, from fuzzy-headed "We are all citizens of the world", the greedy business owner, the vote-seeking politician, the always politically correct educators, the Catholic church, and the labor unions. Always present of course, is the Hard Left anarchists and Marxists who will never miss a chance to cripple capitalism, and they have organized many of the parades and rallies. This grim package is breathlessly covered by the enabling Main Stream Media, where editorials appear on page one disguised as news.

Although a conservative, Gilchrist has harsh words for the current Administration for dereliction of duty by not sealing our borders against terrorists drug mules and the off-loading by President Fox of Mexico's criminals and the lowest classes of workers.

I rated this book 5 stars, but one of the most overlooked issues in this debate deals with the diseased Third World country the swarms are coming from. Tuberculosis, malaria and other diseases stamped out in America decades ago are now sharply on the rise. Gilchrist tended to become redundant in some parts of the book, which if trimmed back, could have left room for this critical issue.

Regardless, it's a well done book and worth the read.

It's funny how so many call them racists, when so many of them are of many races, Hispanic, Black, Asian, American Indian, all good Americans.

Now tell me, how do you call a Hispanic American Citizen who is a Minuteman a racist? That doesn't make much sense.

Everytime I've tried to explain to someone that people DO CARE about the security of our borders, and they don't have a good response, they just get emotional and start calling me a racist. I guess I'd better let my wife know I'm racist, she's from Costa Rica, she might be rather surprized!

The Minutemen are just as concerned about WHITE PEOPLE who come across the border that's why they are on the Canadian border, too. But all these facts don't matter, right? They are all just racists. Uh huh. Yeah, right, sure.
