Welcome to the Minuteman Project

You Have Heard The News Now Hear The Truth

Sometimes You Stand Alone

From time to time the media has confused The Minuteman Project, Inc. with the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. This confusion has led to hard feelings and misrepresentations. Therefore, we would like to set the record straight.

Over a year ago, Mr. Jim Gilchrist led almost 1,000 volunteers to the U.S. and the Mexican border in Southeast Arizona and successfully conducted the largest Minuteman campaign since the Revolutionary War. The Minuteman Project also proved beyond a doubt that U.S. borders can be protected if our political leaders merely have the will to do so. Jim Gilchrist's Minuteman Project brought national awareness to the illegal alien invasion of the United States and embarrassed both the U.S. Congress and the White House. When asked by the media about The Minuteman Project, the president went on record as saying, "Mr. Jim Gilchrist and the volunteers of The Minuteman Project were 'vigilantes'".

Jim Gilchrist is the 21st Century Minuteman. On October 1, 2004 he founded The Minuteman Project, Inc. as a stand alone organization that is in no part related to, or has any business dealing with, the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, whose President is Chris Simcox.

While The Minuteman Project, Inc. and Mr. Jim Gilchrist recognize the work of Chris Simcox and his Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, there is no business relationship with either Chris Simcox or his organization. The Minuteman Project, Inc., and Mr. Jim Gilchrist will always applaud the work of any patriot who believes in the sovereignty and security of the United States of America. The Minuteman Project, Inc. is directed solely by Mr. Jim Gilchrist, his Board of Directors, and no one else.

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." --Samuel Adams
