Summary of Minuteman Activities
in California for 2006
Carl Braun, CA State Leader
[COMMENT: Speaks for itself.... E. Fox]
2006 is behind
us and we have much to be thankful for. Let's take a look at the year in
- We fielded
more than 1,000 people here in CA throughout the year and did so without one
single person being harmed or injured on either side of the border as a
result of our efforts. In fact, more than two dozen received humanitarian
illegal aliens were spotted and reported to Border Patrol. Many untold
thousands couldn't cross because we were there.
- Our CA
membership almost tripled to nearly 2,000 registered and vetted Minuteman
- Our twice
per year musters grew to a muster every month for 11 months of the year
totaling 87 days of border coverage in 2006
- We founded
Camp Vigilance, our home away from home and established radio communications
throughout our assigned area.
- We added
3rd generation night vision, thermal imaging equipment and infra red
spotlights to our border watch efforts.
- Two new CA
Chapters were organized. The NORCAL Minutemen in NAPA and the EASTBAY
Minutemen in Walnut Creek.
- We have
been credited by the DEA with decreasing illegal drug traffic across the
- The Border
Patrol now looks to us as a strategic resource in the field and treats us as
- The CA
Chapter erected two 1/4 mile long fences closing off Jewel Valley to illegal
National Organization constructed miles of fence in AZ.
- We got the
President to send in the National Guard
- We forced
our politicians to sign landmark border security legislation (which
unfortunately now appears to be in danger with a newly elected Democratic
All this and
more in just 1 year. I remember freezing our butts off last January at the
campgrounds wondering if we were going to be able to pull off the monthly
musters; wondering if 6 months from then we would even still be around. Look
at us now. You should all be congratulated and take a deep sense of pride in
knowing what you have accomplished.
to be a banner year for our movement. Amnesty is once again rearing it's
ugly head championed by none other than El Presidente Bush. It saddens me to
think that this one man has done more to destabilize our great nation than
nearly any who have preceded him. Most of this occuring in the last two
- In 2007 We
have to stop Amnesty in its tracks.
- We have to
ensure the SPP project and the unification of North America is derailed
- We must
secure our borders with a fence and sophisticated electronics equipment even
if our government refuses to.
- We must
expand our coverage of the border to include new areas here in CA and at a
minimum double our presence on the border itself through an assertive
Chapters throughout CA are needed. Chapter Leaders needed.

build out and make Camp Vigilance a safe and comfortable home for our

the pressure on our do nothing politicians and let them know that pandering
to illegal special interest groups will get them FIRED.

Expanding our Coverage
Interested in going to the border but can't
make a Muster Weekend? We are putting together a plan to allow willing
Minutemen the opportunity to use Camp Vigilance and secure the border on the
other 27 days of the month. If you are interested in participating in this,
send an email to
with the dates you would like to come down. We'll try to pair you up with
other MM interested in the same dates. This type of effort will do a great
deal to short circuit the smuggling, both people and drugs, that occurs
when we are traditionally not at the border.
This is an ongoing effort. We are now nearly
two years old and have accomplished more than any of us could have imagined.
Our work is not done though, until the borders are secured and the illegals
currently in our country are repatriated to their own. Your participation at
the border and by continually contacting your elected representatives and
telling them NO AMNESTY-SECURE OUR BORDERS is desperately needed. Let's make
2007 the year that we get our country back and stop the invasion. For good.

"We are Minutemen.
Like the Patriots that stood before us at Lexington and Concord, ours is
a struggle for the heart and soul of this great Republic. This is the
playing field of Franklin, Adams and Jefferson.
It is not a
burden...but a privilege."
