I took an oath to protect and defend the US over 35 years ago and no one has released me from my oath.

I am the Dallas (Texas) County Chairman of the new "Veterans Party". The Veterans Party adamantly opposes illegal immigration and champions veterans rights.
C.V. Compton Shaw, Army, E-4, 1968-1970
I am not a veteran but have a list of people who are trying to secure our borderes and take back our country... (I do have a daughter in the Marines for the last 14 years - reservist who went active duty, just f.y.i.)
Laura (in Tucson, AZ where we get 4,000 illegal aliens sneaking in a night! out of the 10,000 that sneak into our country every single day!)
"the number of illegal aliens flooding into the U.S. this year will total 3 million, enough to fill 22,000 Boeing 737-700 airliners, or 60 flights every day." -Time Magazine
"It may only be a matter of time before Al Qaeda or another group attempts to use chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons." - Porter J. Goss, the new director of central intelligence, told the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Intelligence that strongly suggests that Al Qaeda operatives have considered using the Mexican border as an entry point was cited in written testimony by Adm. James M. Loy, the deputy secretary of homeland security.
Why do the President and Congress continue to push for open borders?
I urge the President to bring the troops who are protecting Iraq's border home and have them protect ours. If the Minutemen can stop the flow, I'm sure the National Guard troops could too. This kind of duty is more in their job description and would let them see their wives and kids from time to time.
David Campbell, Army, E-5, 1972-1975
I am sick and tired of these... people sucking up our resources illegally. If you want in then do it legally!!!!
William E Jackson Jr., Navy, Fireman, 1974-1976
I have not served in our armed forces, however, I do believe that it is time to stand beside those who have defended our country foriegn and at home. I believe we are faceing the most serious threat to our country, not only to violent terrists,but to passive invaders (disguised as people in need). The masssive invasion of Illigal immegrents from Brazil, Mexico and other countries is an immediate threat to our country.
Richard Jesse, concerned patriot
We have been flooded with illegals in North Carolina and they have taken over viertually all the construction jobs, displacing American who want to work. They need to be stopped and all illegals sent home immediately, in my opinion.
Bill Davis, Army, CW2, 1967-1970
Go for it - seal it up and get them out.
Dennis Welch, Navy, E-3, 1962-1965
I support your position and we must close our borders.
Henry Landreville, Army, E-7, 1964-1984
President Bush and the rest of Washington's Polititians are COWARDS! Refusing to do thier duty. Who shall become the new, Paul Reviere? It's time to rise up America!
Robert K. Reuwer, USAF, Sgt., 1986-1992
I am the daughter of a WWII Vet. and member of the Daughters of the American Legion #44. I found your website on a newletter sent to me about the border. My daughter is working on a documentary about the borders and is the videographer of the minutemen. Please let us know more about your organization and if there is anything you would like to say in support of closing the borders for the film my daughter is working on presently. Sempre Fi.
Securing borders is overdue; good luck.
William J. Hill, USMC, E-4, 1976-1989
Having watched the invasion of our country for many years and having studied the many advantages of being in our country without ID, it occured to me that along with all the other "perks" that the illegal aliens enjoy, is never being drafted.
We can send little more than high school kids to fight for this country, but the illegal (since he is not a citizen) need never having to worry about putting his life on the line for this country!
Keep up the good work and the rest of us will continue the fight to put this country back on the right track.
"Law is order in liberty, and without order, liberty is social chaos." --Archbishop Ireland
The rule of law must prevail in the United States. Sovereignty and independence must be fought for still. On the political and economic fronts we must stand against the forces of globalism and chaos.
Steven R. McCurry, Army, 1967-1969
I don't have many good years left, but I would gladly spend my last hours defending the borders aginst invasion.
Jimmie D. Hall, Navy, OS1/E-6, 1969-1991
We are now faced with Latino gang violence here in Indianapolis, Indiana. These people refuse to assimilate themselves into our culture, they turn neighborhoods into "barrios", speak to their children in Spanish, and send every other dime made staright back to Mexico. Other than cheap (and, to their credit - these people will work) labor, what is their presence here doing to benefit the country? I say that we need to secure the borders and go to a national ID card. Simply curtailing the ability to send millions of American dollars out of this country would do a tremedous lot to take away the reason for coming here. You make it here - You spend it here. Either that, or Adios, Amigo.
Ron Axley, USAF, 1968-1988
I served under HMCS David V Nolte at 3rd Anglico(USMCR) and I too feel the same as Dave. Our borders need to be protected and guarded!
Richard Oropeza, USNR, HM1, 15 years of service
Thank you for this www. site. I feel the we in the United States have one problem and only one problem ... Open boarders thanks to lazy politicians.

People who hire Illegals are TRAITORS! The White House and Congress are committing TREASON against US Citizens by allowing invasion of Illegals. Thank GOD my Father and Grandfather aren't here to this open Treason by Elites running country,they were WWI and WWII Veterans. My hope is US Citizens will band together and run these TRAITORS out of our COUNTRY!
I'm nearing retirement and plan on devoting myself to this fight for our COUNTRY! MY! Grandchildrens future is hanging on what we can do as Vets. I'm sure many are like me decended from American Vets. Grandfather: WWI doughboy (gased). Father: WWII Army Patton awarded Bronze Star with V for Valor, uncles in Korea. They call for us to protect what they bought with blood. Can we do less?

I am not a veteran, but many of the members of 9/11 Families for a Secure America are. If there is anything we can do to work with you please let us know.

Our Arizona border is a disgrace to this country. Drug cartels and Mexican military fire on our Border Patrol like a free fire zone. We now are host to the MS-13 gang who like sanctuary cities. Home-invasions, assault, car-jackings murder and much more are the norm. Since politicians like corporate bribery to advance open-border agendas so cheap exploitable illegal labor will serve their interests at the citizens expense and the Federal government will not enforce the constitution Article 4 Section 4 we have a disaster on our hands. This country needs a cap on all legal immigration at 250,000 a year, it needs to seal its borders with a military presence, repeal all sanctuary laws and get agressive in deportations (like operation wet-back) and stop giving citizenship to babies born in this country by illegals.

I want the illegals to know that my ancestors fought hard to preserve our freedom. They are taking food and medical assistance from Americans.

The Opening Page of your website puts it succinctly we swore an oath to defend and support OUR CONSTITUTION. The Federal Government, as presently assembled, is simply failing to do its appointed duties in the running of the government. Not only are they performing duties outside of Constitutional authority, lately they have started acting on items in accordance to authorities and opinions from outside the U.S.A. in DIRECT contradiction to the Constitution. What Madness Is This???

I support secure US borders and application of immigration according to law administered by the U.S. Department of State. I support the proposition of all "guest workers" only under identification and application of U.S. Immigration Law. I am opposed to any illegal immigration.

Ernesto Leon, California

When I was drafted in 1964, I heard, "..go right to the head of the line young man and fight our war!" After a lifetime of paying taxes, working hard, and raising a family, I now hear, "..go to the back of the line, forgotten veteran, and deal with what is left over!" I affirm that I am taking a stand by supporting those who intend to properly secure our borders. Thanks!!

Found you on Frosty Wooldridge's web site after listening to him on Coast To Coast AM last night. He suggest we work to influence existing candidates during the next election. I am not sure this will work as the two parties are all but compromized. I believe the country needs a new party that will put up new candidates free of corporate and existing party influences. Retired military would make an excellent group to lead and form effort. The "Minute Man" Party name came to mind capitalizing on the existing efforts of the organization now taking the inititive to control our counties boarders and also reflect back to the soldiers who supported our founding fathers efforts in establishing this great country.

Screw the political correctness!!!! Both parties need to stop worrying about the Hispanic vote and worry more about defending this nation!!!! As it is right now, it won't be long before California and Arizona will be taken over by Hispanics of Mexican decent - one of the biggest Reasons why I'll be leaving California in the near future. I'm tired of subsidizing them and paying for their health problems. Also tired of dealing with them in our prisons, not to mention paying for them there too. (I work as a Correctional Officer for the state.)

Being a good neighbor is one thing. Spending millions on those that are illegally here, is entirely another thing. Washington, D.C. won't care until they find themselves paying dearly for illegal alien services. Protect the borders while we still have borders to protect.
Service rank: Sergeant Major, USMC, 1963-1986
Retired Hospital Corpsman, served 18 years with the US Marines. I loved the people I served with and this country and want to see it survive this invasion of un-authorized entry of people across our boarders.

The RNC has never replied to my numerous questions on why the administration is not pushing congress to improve or establish border security. Do whatever you can to pressure them.

This nation has been allowed to lose control of it's borders. Legal immagration to this country has brought promise for those coming as well as to this nation. Everyone gains through legal immigration. Disaster awaits us down the road with illegal immigration.
