Schwarzenegger Urged to Stay Strong on Border Control


CA Governor has historic opportunity with Fox visit

The Minuteman Project, the nation’s frontline organization fighting the crisis of illegal immigration, is urging California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to stay the firm course he has taken in the past on this vital issue.

Mexican President Vicente Fox is scheduled to meet with the governor when Fox visits California on Thursday. During the five-day U.S. trip, Fox will be meeting with legislators, business leaders, and Mexican immigrants to bolster support for American immigration reform.

Fox wants any reform to permit a guest worker program and some sort of amnesty for illegal aliens already in the United States.

“We appreciate the support Governor Schwarzenegger has given this issue in the past,” Minuteman Project Founder Jim Gilchrist said. “Unlike some of our elected officials in far-off Washington, the governor clearly understands the burden illegal aliens put on American families.”

On several occasions, Schwarzenegger has expressed support for the job the Minutemen are doing at the border.

“We truly are doing the job the federal government refuses to do,” Gilchrist said. “We will continue the fight to bring this issue to the attention of the American people and are thankful for the governor’s encouragement.”
