A Cornered Rat Will Attack

Jim Gilchrist is being sued for embezzling Minuteman Project funds. His trial date is set for May 27th . He is terrified of facing the financial paper trail in court so he is desperately trying to silence his critics and accusers with frivolous lawsuits.

On April 16th, 2008, Jim Gilchrist filed a defamation lawsuit against Brook Young of Immigration Watchdog, Chelene Nightingale of Save Our State, Barbara Coe of CCIR, Minuteman Project Treasurer Deborah Courtney, and Minuteman Project President Marvin Stewart.

Jim Gilchrist Threatens To Sue One Hundred Patriots!

Yes, you read that correctly, Jim Gilchrist is also threatening to sue as many as one hundred Patriots in the movement for defamation. As of this writing, they are unnamed John Doe’s but more Patriots could be added to the list at any time.

If you’ve grown tired of dodging all the Iraq war movies at theaters in recent months, we’ve got good news: Hollywood appears to be taking on a new issue.We’ll give you a couple hints: It’s another hot-button topic that’s been dominating headlines lately, and it’s factored into the plots of 2004’s “Maria Full of Grace,” 2006’s “Fast Food Nation” and last year’s “Babel,” among others.

Yep, the issue is illegal immigration in the U.S., and you can expect to see it explored on the big screen with increasing frequency in coming months.

Now for the bad news: If two fictionalized movies currently playing are any indication, we may be in for a lot of manipulation.

Both “Under the Same Moon (La Misma Luna)” and “The Visitor” are focused intently on putting a sympathetic human face on illegal immigration. However, in the process of trying to coerce us into rooting for their illegal-immigrant protagonists, they create unconvincing, idealized characters and oversimplify the vastly complex immigration issue.

“Under the Same Moon,” directed by Patricia Riggen and written by Ligiah Villalobos, has been playing to U.S. audiences since mid-March. In the mostly Spanish-language film, Rosario (Kate del Castillo) illegally immigrates to Los Angeles from Mexico so that she can raise money to send back to her family, particularly her son, Carlitos (Adrian Alonso). After four years’ time, the boy misses his mom terribly, and when the grandmother who watches him passes away, he decides to cross the border in search of her.

Ms. Riggen told one reporter that she is “not telling [audiences] to think this way or the other.” Maybe not, but her film sure is.

Rosario could hardly be a more ideal poster child for illegal immigration: stunningly gorgeous, always fashionably dressed (despite her apparent poverty), hard-working, industrious, friendly, chaste, tender with children and moral enough to know that marrying a U.S. citizen for a green card is wrong. What’s not to love about her? Maybe that she’s too perfect?

Then there are the Americans: the college kids who smuggle her son across the border to earn tuition money, the junkie who tries to sell 9-year-old Carlitos to a pimp, the INS agents who violently beat suspected undocumented workers with nightsticks, and the rich “witch” (”Cruella de Vil”) whose house Rosario cleans.

Guanajuato, Mexico.- Inhabitants of Santa Teresa and Cuauhtémoc (State of Guanajuato, Mexico), where on Tuesday police officers were stoned, complained of the insecurity that exists in this place; they blame the undocumented that “threaten them if they don’t receive lodging”.

The neighbors told by letters that many neighbors give asylum to the central American illegals, but even when they notify municipal authorities, “they don’t listen to us”, because it doesn’t affect them, but besides that, some have already been victims of home robberies and muggings.

This situation is known by the authorities, since the police chief, Prisciliano Mandujano Herrera indicated that there are also “Maras” (MS-13), the mayor Gerardo Hernández Gutiérrez said that they are begining special operations to put an end to this criminal factor in the area.

The cities of Santa Teresa and Cuauhtémoc has become a rest area for undocumented people, mainly Hondurans, Salvadorian and Guatemalan, who some stay in the alternate streets, where they pay 100 pesos for lodging and food.

“It is already a serious problem, they always walk around here, some people let them stay in their houses, in exchange for money”, one of the neighbors said who preferred to omit their name for fear of retaliations.

An old woman, declared that in several occasions she has had to confront “illegals”, “they come and they ask me to let them stay and sleep in my house,, but they get mad and they begin to insult me because they tell me that others let them”.

She said that even her daughters have been victims of aggressions on the part of the youths that gather after six in the afternoon, “we can’t leave here after those hours because they tell us a bunch of things”.

On the other hand the inhabitants complained that the youth already are dedicated to steal and to assault them, “they are a danger for us”.

Jose Dolores Montoya Sanchez

KPHO

GUADALUPE, Ariz. — An illegal immigrant has been arrested on suspicion of raping and kidnapping a 15-year-old girl at her Guadalupe home, Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies said.

The MCSO Special Victims Unit arrested Jose Dolores Montoya Sanchez, 24.

Sanchez was booked into the Maricopa County jail late Wednesday on one count of sexual assault, one count of kidnapping and two counts sexual abuse.

Sheriff’s deputies said they began investigating the case when the victim disclosed that Sanchez sexually assaulted her at a Guadalupe home.

The 15-year-old was immediately taken to a local hospital for medical treatment, MCSO said. A forensic evaluation confirmed an assault, according to sheriff’s investigators.

Sheriff’s deputies said Sanchez has been in the country illegally for the past 10 years.

“This suspect sexually assaulted a young innocent girl and this is yet another example of a violent crime committed by an illegal alien in Maricopa County,” Sheriff Joe Arpaio said. “The deputies working in Guadalupe did a professional and thorough investigation.”

Tancredo

Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Littleton) today criticized the Pope?s comments regarding U.S. immigration policy. According to reports, Pope Benedict XVI said the United States must do ?everything possible to fight … all forms of violence so that immigrants may lead dignified lives.?

?I would like to know what part of our lax immigration policy is considered violent,? Tancredo said. ?I fail to see how accepting more refugees than any other nation ?and providing free health care, education, housing and social service benefits to millions of illegal aliens is in any way ?violent? or ?degrading.??

Pope Benedict XVI has made amnesty a key issue in his papacy. He met with President Bush, reportedly adding his voice to the open-border lobby by encouraging Bush to provide blanket amnesty to all illegal immigrants in the United States.

At the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the Pope said, ?I want to encourage you and your communities to continue to welcome the immigrants who join your ranks today, to share their joys and hopes, to support them in their sorrows and trials and to help them flourish in their new home.?

?I am not taking issue with the Pope?s moral authority and respect his views on the threat of radical Islam,? Tancredo said. ?However, it is not in his job description to engage in American politics.?

Tancredo also cited a recent report indicating that the ?Catholic Church?has been losing members rapidly — as much as a third of the native-born Catholic population. Meanwhile, it has gained members among foreign-born (mostly Hispanic) residents.?

?I suspect the Pope?s immigration comments may have less to do with spreading the gospel than they do about recruiting new members of the church,” said Tancredo. “This isn?t preaching it is ?faith-based? marketing.?

The smuggler was driving at an extremely high rate of speed with a fully loaded car, and they weren’t even being pursued by law enforcement.
