Minuteman Founder Endorses Brandon Martin for Congress
Outraged NRCC backing Trump opponent on DACA, Dreamers, and the Wall
Aliso Viejo, CA – Minuteman Project Founder and President Jim Gilchrist, the nation's leading grassroots activist on the issue of immigration reform and border security, announced he is endorsing Brandon Martin in the Republican Primary in the Second Congressional District of Arizona. Gilchrist cited Martin’s strong stand on securing our borders, never supporting amnesty, and building a wall on the district’s border with Mexico. Polls show that immigration reform and border security remains one of the top issues facing voters of the state of Arizona in the upcoming August 28 Primary.
Gilchrist stated, “Unlike his opponent, Brandon Martin will join with President Trump to fight illegal aliens in our country and build a wall. Martin will demand both the Federal and State Government to enforce our laws and our borders. Martin truly has a committed stand on the issues of immigration reform and border security and is just the leader Arizona needs to end the chaos of illegal immigration.”
Regarding the August 28 primary Gilchrist said, "For too long law abiding Americans have grown tired of watching the political establishment lack the will to enforce our nation's laws when it comes to border security and immigration policy. For the National Republican Congressional Committee and Congressman Martha McSally to support someone in this election who directly opposes President Trump on these issues proves that The Swamp is alive and well in Arizona. Arizona needs someone in Washington DC that will fight on behalf of taxpayers to end the influx of illegal aliens in America, and that is why I wholeheartedly endorse Brandon Martin for Congress."
Jim Gilchrist founded the multi-ethnic Minuteman Project on Oct. 1, 2004, after years of frustrated efforts trying to get a neglectful U.S. government to simply enforce existing immigration laws. He was one of the original campaign endorsers of President Trump in the summer of 2015.
