Dear Editor,

Most of the Minuteman and immigration news I've seen recently involves people in comfortable offices, legislators debating arcane unenacted law, lobbyists pitching a position and similar.

In stark contrast, the Minutemen are on the line and working. Isn't that news? Somehow, it has gotten no coverage that I've seen, but the info is readily available. Here's the latest report from the border watch.

That's what we call it; the virus that has been spreading to about 12 of the volunteers over the past week! There is a bug going around camp, putting some of our brave Minutemen down for a day or two at a time. It even got to a couple of the leadership. No, its not from the food; some have gotten the bug that have not been eating at the kitchen! So its been a week of encouraging good hygiene and washing our hands several times daily. We continue to persevere even when our leadership team goes down, the mission continues.

We are now into our last week of the April operations. To date, I note 1194 sightings and 589 apprehensions by US Border Patrol. 50% of our sightings are now being apprehended by USBP, a wonderful number we have not yet achieved in the past. Daily, the USBP agents continue to thank us for being there, noting how they appreciate our presence and that we are making a big effect on their own mission. USBP has been very active in the valley South of us with vehicle check-points, and we see the Black Hawk helicopters up daily.

Although the ACLU is still present, hanging out across the street from the base camp; they have not been back onto the main ranch. The kids continue to smile and wave at us, videotaping and lounging in chairs. The gal we photographed last April smoking marijuana is there as well. We set up a new line on the ranch, a very successful line that we have named the "Yberra Line". We started working it this past weekend, and each time its active. The namesake seems to be a bit of luck for us.

We were lucky enough to have a volunteer donate a 'cherry-picker' this past weekend to do some work on our radio antenna. When the work was done, we realized we had this piece of equipment for the weekend! So we drove it across the street to the Brawley Wash and made it a post! Carmen and Anthony took to the skies, 60 feet in the air Saturday PM with the thermal scope and we had our first sighting! The small group was lit up from the sky and they sat right down and waited a few minutes for a USBP agent close by to come pick them up. Way to go guys!

The volunteers continue to poor in daily. Lots of new faces and plenty of local residents dropping by to give their thanks. Each volunteer is more eager than the last to take their post and stand guard. We are thankful for their vigilance.

Saturday nights meal included fresh turkey and a honey-baked ham, nothing left but bones and I think the cook even managed to make a meal out of them too! The hot chow is a welcome sight to those coming off the lines, and those headed out. Thank you to all the Minutemen that have supported the kitchen efforts throughout the month.

May is coming up fast and many events are being planned. May 3rd will be the Minuteman Caravan at the Phoenix Capital, 7PM. May 6th will be a nation-wide protest rally at ALL Mexican Consulates across the land, high-noon for that in Phoenix. May 20th is the "Lay-Up Clean-Up" in NW Phoenix near Lake Pleasant, and we will be back in operations on the border come Memorial Day Weekend. More details to follow within the week on these events.

Our closing ceremonies will be Sunday April 30th at the base camp at 8AM. Please come and thank our volunteers for their dedication. We are pleased to announce the attendance of over 600 Minutemen Volunteers come to stand guard for the month in Arizona alone!

Stay alert, stay active. Stay Vigilant.

Semper Vigilans.
