The Minuteman Project is heading to the Mexican border in Cochise County for a looksie this weekend. Chris Simcox, head of the Minuteman Project has been organizing monthly meetups since the group was founded.

Simcox said the volunteers will deploy along some of the same border locations where the group's observers staged their vigils during monthlong exercises in April and October — an area between Naco and the Huachuca Mountains.
Since their April vigil near Naco, the project has gone nationwide in scope, with chapters organized in about 23 states and others in development, Simcox said.
Among other things, the organization also has started to protest and videotape sites in several cities where illegal immigrants gather to be hired for day-labor jobs.
"We've shut down numerous sites in Houston, Herndon, Va., and Phoenix," Simcox said.
Another arm of the project, created by Gilchrist, is "Operation Spotlight." It will focus on gathering evidence of workplace violations of federal immigration, tax or employment laws. Gilchrist is an independent congressional candidate in Tuesday's special election in Southern California.
"We're not going away," Simcox said. "We're doubling our efforts."
Thanks to you guys for keeping up the effort!
