Minuteman Border Fence
A Successful Start on a Security Fence. More than 1,500 volunteer
to build the fence along with Chris Simcox and Alan Keyes
Chris Simcox has kept his promise and volunteers have begun building the
Minuteman Border Fence. The successful groundbreaking was held in
Arizona on Memorial Day weekend, as President Bush refused to
immediately deploy National Guard and reserve troops to secure
America’s out-of-control southern border with Mexico.
Hundreds of volunteers—along with Minuteman Founder Chris Simcox,
Ambassador Alan Keyes, Congressman Steve King, AZ gubernatorial
candidate Don Goldwater, WeNeedAFence.com founder Colin Hanna and AZ Congressional
candidate Randy Graf—dug holes, mixed concrete, put up fencing while
opposition groups jeered and skeptics said it could not be done.
MCDC continues with dedicated volunteers, engineers and contractors
using LEGAL crews to work with local Arizona land owners in building
mile after mile of border security fencing on private land along the
border with Mexico. The first site is 10 miles long and the first 2.5
miles of Minuteman Border Fence already has been completed.

The Minuteman Border Fence is placing cameras which will be monitored
via computer over the Internet by registered Minutemen across the
country, so that Minuteman volunteers can observe and report illegal
crossings from the computer in their living rooms 24/7.
The Border Fence is already making a difference.
Local reports indicate that drug and human trafficking has already
been reduced. There are fewer vehicles in the area where the fence is
under construction—proving again that having a presence and taking
positive steps to do SOMETHING to secure the border reduces the flow
of illegal aliens, potential terrorists, drug and human traffickers,
murderers, rapists and thieves in these areas.
More than 1,500 have volunteered to build the fence.
and organization continues as volunteers, materials and contractors
are being coordinated in an unprecedented alliance with over 1,500
Minuteman Border Fence volunteers. In the true spirit of the Minutemen
of the American Revolution these patriots have joined together to form
an army of volunteers to secure our borders and protect America’s
sovereignty, security and prosperity.
“The undertaking is monumental and historic” says Chris
MCDC is beginning construction of the Israeli-style border security
fence at a second ranch location in early July and later in the year
in TX, CA and NM as more resources are marshaled. Two fencing
companies that hire legally have been retained to run the jobs sites
and coordinate volunteer construction crews as Minutemen volunteers
are scheduled to provide labor and security. Crews of four to ten
volunteers under the guidance of professional fence installers can
install as much as 3 miles of fence in a week.
The reality is the Minutemen are here to stay. In April of 2005,
over 800 volunteer men and women took action to secure the border.
This year there are more than 200,000 Minutemen activists not only
guarding the border but building fence, faxing our elected
representatives, making phone calls, voting open border politicians
out of office, starting local chapters and contributing their time,
money and expertise. MCDC is an explosive grassroots effort enjoying
the energetic support of political Democrats, Republicans and
Independents—all American patriots who have earned the trust of the
public by keeping our word to remain vigilant until our borders are
A Comprehensive Design
By working with and talking to the ranchers
and Border Patrol agents that live and work in this virtual war zone
we have learned that no single design or deterrent will be 100%
effective. A variety of designs and support structures are needed to
meet local security needs.
physical barrier capable of stopping people and vehicles has been
designed to fit the terrain. It is also a visual deterrent that cuts
illegal crossings by 95% or more. The security fence will not be easy
to compromise by climbing over with a ladder, cannot be cut with wire
cutters, breached by ramming with a vehicle, or tunneling under
undetected. No fence can be a 100% impenetrable barrier—but it is a
good design and will be time-consuming enough to get through that
Border Patrol agents can be alerted and respond before the incursion
can be completed.
Our fence plan will keep costs near $150 per foot.
The fencing will be built on private land with privately donated
funds, engineering and labor. Its construction will serve as an
example to educate the public about the feasibility and efficacy of
fencing to secure America’s borders from illegal invasion by aliens
and international criminal cartels. An IRS-authorized charitable
non-profit organization is facilitating and administering donations
for construction of the fence. Monetary and in-kind contributions for
this effort will go directly into meeting hard costs such as building
materials for this private fencing operation.
We have a monumental challenge ahead to raise $55 million. We
urgently need your help for this effort to succeed. With your help
MCDC can make America more secure by continuing to urge citizen
volunteers to support the Minuteman Border Fence.
Be sure to send this to EVERYONE you know who wants to help STOP
illegal aliens at the border! Thank you!
