The Minuteman Project

Update: 1 November 2004


Dear Americans,

The MinuteMan Project currently has 66 volunteers from the following 12 states:

Arizona 36; California 11; Colorado 1; Florida 2; Massachusetts 2; NewMexico 4; Ohio 3; Oklahoma 1; Oregon 2; Texas 2; Virginia 1; Wyoming 1

If YOU, or someone you know, would like to be a participant in The Minuteman Project, please read the recruiting poster below and respond accordingly.

To Citizens of the Republic of the United States of America:

Are YOU interested in spending up to 30 days manning the Arizona border as a blocking force against entry into the U.S. by illegal aliens early next spring?

I invite you to join me in Tombstone, Arizona in early spring of 2005 to protect our country from a 40-year-long invasion across our southern border with Mexico.

Chris Simcox of Civil Homeland Defense, and the publisher of the Tombstone Tumbleweed newspaper in Tombstone, Arizona has been protecting our borders for five years with only a handful of patriotic volunteers. It is time we provided him with reinforcements.

I am recruiting volunteers to converge on the southern border of Arizona for the purpose of aiding the U.S. Border Patrol in "spotting" intruders entering the U.S. illegally.

This is strictly a volunteer project. No financial subsidies are available. And, you will probably need a tent, sleeping bag etc. You will be responsible for all costs associated with your participation.

Currently, about 5,000 illegal aliens enter the US/Arizona border DAILY. Another 5.000 invade the U.S. from the Texas, California and New Mexico borders...DAILY. That's 10,000 per day - 300,000 per month. Over 3,000,000 (three million) per year!

Our objective will be to spot these intruders by eyesight, or with the aid of binoculars - telescopes, and inform the U.S. Border Patrol of the location of the trespassers so that border patrol agents can intercept and detain them. Generally, we will not be confronting the illegal aliens. The tentative area of observation will be a 10-mile stretch of forested highlands, and lowlands along the San Pedro River.

I hope to bring serious media attention to this event, which will tune the American people into the shameful fact that 21st century minutemen/women have to secure US borders because the US government REFUSES to do so.

I estimate the cost per person (for 30 days) could be as high as $3,500, depending on your travel, meal and lodging arrangements. I will be visiting the Tombstone area in mid December or early January to meet with Chris Simcox regarding the availability of facilities for those who do not want to use tents or travel trailers. I intend to stay the entire 30 days of this mission, however, that length of time is not a requirement to volunteer.

I will try to negotiate substantially discounted rates for lodging, especially if we are bringing 200 - 300, or more "vacationing guests" into Tombstone all at once.

The Tombstone area parks also offer some interesting hunting, hiking, mountain climbing and fishing opportunities for avid outdoorsmen/women.

I will be acting as an interim coordinator of The MinuteMan Project. My immediate purpose is to recruit as many volunteers as possible.

If YOU are interested in participating in this unprecedented event, please


Please provide me with a brief history of yourself, for example, your vocation, any military background, outdoors (outback) experience, etc. There are no written prerequisites for joining this mission, however, I would appreciate knowing something about the experiences of those responding to this invitation.

Please INCLUDE the following information in your email response:

1. Name

2. Address

3. Telephone number and best time to call

4. Brief statement why you want to participate in this project

5. Brief history of any experiences related to the mission of The MinuteMan Project.

6. Amount of time (1 - 30 days) you desire to participate.

7. Any physical ailments or disabilities that might limit the "type" of participation, i.e., limited to deskwork only, confined to a wheel chair, etc.

The MinuteMan Project is in its development stage. More information about the project will follow as this plan comes together.
