FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
A MINUTEMAN GOES TO WASHINGTON
“SECURE AMERICA’S BORDERS NOW!” PETITION NATIONWIDE DRIVE, VISITS TO SENATORS’ OFFICES
(PHOENIX, AZ) April 12, 2006 – The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps announced today a cross country “Secure America’s Borders Now!” petition drive by Minuteman volunteer Tony Dolz, a naturalized American citizen from Cuba. The tour will feature stops at state offices of United States Senators to deliver the Minuteman message of a secure America, with copies of thousands of activist petitions for border control.
Dolz will drive a “Minuteman Van” as a LEGAL immigrant from California to Washington, D.C., meeting fellow Minutemen and supporters, and gathering additional petition signatures to deliver to the White House and Congress. The two-week swing is part of nationwide Minuteman efforts urging President Bush and Congress to protect our nation by immediately placing reserve military units on the border. The petition also calls on the Senate to follow the lead of the House of Representatives by passing legislation to secure our borders through fencing, technology and a massive increase in Border Patrol agents—without guest worker amnesty programs for illegal aliens.
Dolz invites all those who would like to participate in this effort to meet him at his stops at Senate offices throughout the country, sign the petition, take copies to gather signatures of friends and family, and to call into talk radio shows all over America. Loyal American countrymen of all immigrant forebears and national origin need to voice their outrage at the recent arrogant demands for amnesty by those illegally in our country, and the U.S. Senate’s careless disregard for our national security and sovereignty in their maneuverings to provide a wholesale sell-out of American citizenship to illegal migrants.
The petition drive will begin Thursday, April 13th with stops at the Los Angeles offices of California senator Diane Feinstein. The tour will proceed east to the Las Vegas, Nevada office of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on Friday, April 14th. A visit to Sen. John McCain’s office in Phoenix, Arizona is scheduled for Saturday, April 15th.
Further tour stops will be announced as the tour progresses. The petition drive is expected to arrive in our nation’s capital in about two weeks time—as the U.S. Senate reconvenes.
A copy of the petition, which already has garnered over 8,500 signatures, is available at http://www.minutemanhq.com
The petition is available online so that those unable to join the Minuteman tour in person can add their names.
