Elliott Spitzer Caves In Due to Pressure from Talk Shows!
New York Governor Elliott Spitzer finally threw in the towel on his outrageous proposal to give illegal aliens drivers Licenses!
Thanks in large part to heroic Talk Show hosts daring to oppose the Governor of America’s largest state.
Conducting Talk Show interviews on this victory are spokespersons from the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, who gladly proclaim, “It’s safe to go back on the highways again.”
But as outrageous as Governor Spitzer’s plan was, there are two sobering points:
1) He still defends the “licenses for illegals” plan as being a good plan, and
2 he likely would have succeeded had we not still had Freedom of Speech and a whole host of Talk Show hosts exercising that right.
ABOUT CARMEN MERCER…
Carmen Mercer is Vice President of Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.
She is a 52-year old legal immigrant from Germany and a proud citizen of the United States of America since 1999.
Ms. Mercer is also part of the “Granny Brigade”, grandmothers and mothers who have joined together to protect their children from drugs, disease, violence etc. coming through our borders.
Carmen was a founding member of The Minuteman Corps, established in October 2005.
When she’s not standing watch on the border, Carmen operates a restaurant in Tombstone, Arizona, which she has owned for 13 years.
Carmen first met Minuteman founder Chris Simcox in 2002 when they worked together to form a neighborhood watch group, in response to what President Bush called upon U.S. citizens to do in response to 9/11, being “vigilant and to report any suspicious activity.” Little did President Bush know just how far and how quickly people like Carmen were to take that challenge.
Mercer’s motto: “Secure our border - Government do your job.”
ABOUT CHRIS SIMCOX…
Chris Simcox is the founder and president of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, a nationwide grassroots organization with border watch patrols along the northern and southern United States borders.
Simcox earned a bachelor's degree in human development and education from L.A.'s Pacific Oaks College. He taught in a public high school for one year and in private school – kindergarten through third grade – for over a decade.
His interest in education lingers. "I am passionate about fixing our broken education system in this country - as much as I am about broken border security," Chris said.
ABOUT AL GARZA…
Al Garza is National Executive Director of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (MCDC). He previously served as Texas state director for MCDC before being promoted to second in command. He is a 5th generation descendent of LEGAL immigrants.
He was born in Texas and moved with his family at age 12 to California where he finished his education. After graduating high school in 1965, he volunteered for service in Vietnam with the Marines. He was honorably discharged after four years of service with the rank of Sergeant. His family has a long history of serving in the U.S. military.
Al spent the rest of his career as a licensed private investigator, is now retired living in Southern Arizona and is a popular guest on many radio and television Talk Shows.
