Minuteman Militia Project Recruiting 3,500 Volunteers to Patrol US Border

In a post at MinutemanProject.com titled Operation Normandy, co-founder of the Minuteman Project Jim Gilchrist called for recruitments for groups of militias, as well as non-militia volunteers to participate in helping to secure the United States southern border.

According to the post:

The Minuteman Project’s “Operation Normandy” has been launched as of 1200 hours Monday, July 7. This event will dwarf the original Minuteman Project of 2005. I expect at least 3,500 non-militia volunteers to participate, plus uncounted groups of militias from all over the country.

If you are familiar with the Normandy invasion of France in 1944, then you have an idea how large and logistically complicated this event will be. However, there is one difference. We are not going to the border to invade anyone. We are going there to stop an invasion.

Our federal, state, and community governments have failed to address and fix this calamity. In the spirit of our nation’s Founding Fathers, it is once again time to bring unprecedented national awareness to the decades-long illegal alien crisis jeopardizing the United States.


It will take 10 months to recruit, organize, and launch this event, and it will cover the porous areas of the 2,000-mile border from San Diego, Ca. to Brownsville, Texas.

Earlier in July, Gilchrist was interviewed by KPHO. While he has faced a myriad of critics, who have claimed that his plan will create more problems than it solves, Gilchrist responded, “Our federal government especially has failed us.”

“We’re trying to recruit thousands of people to cover the porous border areas from San Diego to Brownsville, Texas,” Gilchrist said.

Previously, many of those that participated in the previous border security campaign were branded as vigilantes, but Gilchrist says that things should be down legally and lawfully.

“The rule of law means you do not put a hand on anyone. You do not talk to anyone. You do not confront anyone. You report to Border Patrol,” Gilchrist said.


According to Gilchrist, those who choose to participate will not be operating under the banner of the Minuteman Project, but will simply be exercising their constituional rights. Obviously many of these will be armed. This is where many people get concerned. The only cause this author has for concern is if people don’t know what they are doing with their weapon. Then they become a danger to themselves and everyone around them. Other than that, there shouldn’t be a problem.

At the end of June, militia gathered near the Texas border in order to repel the invasion of illegal immigrants coming across the border. Earlier this month, they set up a command center. It appears that they will be receiving plenty of support from the Minuteman Project.
