Bernie Sanders voted Yes to Republican Amendment backing the Minuteman patrolling for illegal Immigrants;  Neo-Nazi and white supremacist  have campaigned with the group

 

Things Donald Trump would support.  Not only did Bernie Sanders vote No to Immigration Reform in 2006 and 2007; but Bernie Sanders voted YES to a Republican amendment supporting the Minuteman patrolling for illegal immigrants.  According to the Southern Poverty Law Center,  they call the Minuteman an extreme nativist group.

Minuteman Project

Criticism[edit]

The project has generated controversy, drawing criticism from former Mexican President Vicente Fox and former United States President George W. Bush, who expressed dislike for “vigilante” border projects.[22] In 2005, James Gilchrist said he had been told that the Latino criminal organization MS13 had “issued orders to teach ‘a lesson'” to the Minutemen.[23] The Minuteman Project and its chapters have been called anextreme nativist group by the Southern Poverty Law Center,[24] and the Anti-Defamation League has observed that Neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups have campaigned alongside them. The ADL reported an official connection between these groups has been established.[25] In December, 2005 James Chase turned over leadership of the California Minutemen (CMM) & the national Border Watch Federation (BWF) to his son, Mike Chase.[citation needed] Recruits, operations and the influence of the California Minutemen continued to grow, and the North County Times[26] complained of Mike Chase’s appointment to the political steering committee of California Senator Bill Morrow’s campaign for the 50th District Congressional seat vacated by Randy “Duke” Cunningham.[citation needed]

Monitors[edit]

Various media representatives, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and observers from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) are also in the patrol zone attempting to observe Minutemen volunteers at work. In November 2006, ACLU released a report detailing the Minuteman Campaign and stated that a large number of daily newspapers “wildly exaggerated” the number of volunteers who actually participated in the group’s operation in southeastern Arizona in April 2005.[28]

Individuals who claimed to be Minuteman Project’s board of directors claimed they removed Gilchrist as head of the Minuteman Project amid allegations of fraud and financial mismanagement, but a representative of the Delaware Secretary of State told the Los Angeles Times that only Gilchrist could make those changes.[17] In a May 2007 interview, Gilchrist claimed: “I’m the President and always was. I got the corporation back. I have the right to the web site, the bank account, everything. We are back in the same position as we were prior to the hijacking.”[29] Judge Wilkinson issued an interim ruling barring the board members from spending Minuteman Project donations until Gilchrist’s lawsuit is resolved. In April 2007, Gilchrist announced the formation of a new non-profit corporation, named Jim Gilchrist’s Minuteman Project, Inc.

Jim Gilchrist

Controversy[edit]

In October 2006, Gilchrist appeared on Democracy Now and abruptly ended the interview after Karina Garcia started accusing him of being a murderer and said that he has ties to the white supremacist groupNational Alliance.[12]

In a March 2006, interview with the Orange County Register, Gilchrist stopped just short of calling for his followers to pick up their guns: “I’m not going to promote insurrection, but if it happens, it will be on the conscience of the members of Congress who are doing this,” he said. “I will not promote violence in resolving this, but I will not stop others who might pursue that.”[13]

In May 2010, Politico reported that Howie Morgan, the Minuteman Project’s political director, may have solicited donations from political campaigns in exchange for Gilchrist’s endorsement.[14] Rick Perry, Parker Griffith and Tim Bridgewater were all recipients of Gilchrist’s endorsements in 2010. Mo Brooks, an Alabama politician running against Griffith, said that Morgan indicated Gilchrist would endorse Brooks if Morgan was hired.[14]

In September 2014, the Daily Show made a segment about the Honduran children immigration featuring an interview with Jim Gilchrist, who compared the recent events at the border with a Trojan Horse situation, the vanguard of a Latino invasion of the United States. The correspondent Michael Che poked fun at Gilchrist’s initiative against immigrants, called “Operation Normandy”: “If this is Operation Normandy and the children are invading us, wouldn’t that make us the Nazis?” . Gilchrist warned against the dangers of the “latinization of America” that the young refugees posed and added, to a baffled interviewer, “We’re all going to die some day. (…) I’m not giving a death wish on these children coming here (…) I’m saying that there’s some things realistically you cannot stop.”.[15]

 

 

Jack Kingston sponsored the bill

Republican Representative (GA-1)

 

Voted YES on preventing tipping off Mexicans about Minuteman Project.Voting YES on this amendment supports the Minuteman Project, a group of volunteers who have taken on surveillance of the Mexican border for illegal immigrants. The amendment states that US funds will not be used to tell the Mexican government about the whereabouts of the Minuteman Project volunteers. Proponents of the Minuteman Project say that they are volunteer citizens doing what the federal government SHOULD be doing, but has failed to do. Opponents of the Minuteman Project say that they are vigilantes at best and anti-Mexican racists at worst. The amendment states:

None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to provide a foreign government information relating to the activities of an organized volunteer civilian action group, operating in the State of California, Texas, New Mexico, or Arizona, unless required by international treaty.

    The amendment’s sponsor said on its behalf:

  • What this amendment does is it clarifies Congress’ position on a Border Patrol practice or a practice of the US Government that tips off illegal immigrants as to where citizen patrols may be located.
  • As a response to the lawlessness along the Mexican border, a group has sprung up called the Minutemen Project, and the Minutemen Project is definitely not politically correct in Washington DC. However, they filled a void which the government was unable to fill.
  • There are over 7,000 volunteers in the Minutemen organization, and their help has been productive and good.
  • What my amendment does is simply says that the U.S. Government cannot tip off the Mexican officials as to where these folks are located. Plain and simple, nothing fancy about it. I am sure the Border Patrol will say, oh, no, we are not doing that, and yet one of the Web pages of the Secretary of Mexico had the information very explicit, and we just do not believe that is a good practice.
