Now the Minutemen have done the impossible with very little,
We will keep the heat on the Feds and keep building Fence!

It's not news that the Minutemen have critics and are under constant assault from the liberal media and open border alliance organizations. But in spite of all this, the Minutemen press on! Giving leadership and hope to America since our patriots sounded the first national call in 2005 to Secure Our Borders NOW, our committed and courageous Minuteman Civil Defense Corps volunteers are showing that good people CAN make a difference in the defense of our nation’s security, sovereignty, safety and prosperity.

Against endless waves of open border lobbying, and a constant barrage of nay-saying criticism and media distortions, the Minutemen simply continue on their mission—to secure the border of these United States. We will not be distracted, and we will not be dissuaded. While the alliance of critics devote all their time and resources seeking to destroy U.S. security and erase our border, Minuteman Civil Defense Corps volunteers stand strong in the gap to fortify, build, increase and improve border security for our country.

Much has been done and Much More is left to do.

Minutemen have been hard at work grading, excavating, digging holes—sometimes in rock—and putting 9,504 linear feet of fence posts into the ground. There are 528 in-place 18 foot long posts cemented 4 feet deep into the ground, secured with 35,367 yards of concrete all of which is designed to support a cost effective and lasting fence that is a testament to the strength and resolve of the American Minutemen who say BUILD IT.

254 galvanized steel mesh panels are already installed according to our fence engineering and manufacture specifications, with anchor bolts that are shot into the steel and work the same as a weld. These panels form an anti-climb wall of security fence that is a substantial barrier forcing illegal aliens to go around the entire fence structure. Using anything short of a tank will not suffice to tear down these posts.

Richard Hodges is the owner of the land at the ranch in Bisbee, AZ that is the main Minuteman Fence construction site. He has sponsored this project to educate the public and demonstrate to the U.S. government that a border fence works, is necessary, and is practical and affordable to construct. Hodges says, It has been a pleasure working with the Minutemen” and the “The fence is a substantial barrier.Hodges goes on to say that The Government had talked about building a fence, but not until the Minutemen showed up did they start to do anything.”

Richard Hodges tells of how he has been physically attacked by illegal aliens, and points out where drugs are regularly stashed just across the border in Mexico—waiting to be picked up and delivered.

This rancher is grateful for the work that has been done. There is still much work to do. The fight has been long and hard, but the Minutemen are still gaining ground. Quietly and confidently our volunteers have trudged forward, through heat and monsoon season—and the mud that their opposition is throwing at them. What lies ahead is hope. Already the efforts of the Minutemen have paved the way, forcing our feckless federal government to begin giving the American people what they want and need, a border fence.

But the government is not doing anywhere near all that it can do—it is long on talk and short on performance, selling the American people short as it has for decades. The Feds are stalling, wasting time, putting up inferior fencing at vast expense on delayed timelines—all in the hopes that the people of this country will be won over by their political grandstanding and public relations. But if one thing is true about Americans, it is that we know how to work, we stay until the work is done, and we give it 110%.

The Minutemen are Americans, we are in touch with working American men and women and families and we are all driven by the same love of country and the same hard work ethic. Our patriot volunteers are providing the example and giving it their all. But they need more hardworking Americans like you to stand up and support their effort. $400,000 is still needed to complete the Hodges fence span with full technology. It will be a superb model for the Feds of do-able, affordable, highly effective border barrier. And with your help, we can achieve this goal.

When completed, computer controlled cameras along the fence will be programmed to focus on any part of the fence that is disturbed. These cameras will then automatically alert human monitors and U.S. Border Patrol in the area, and the intruders will be apprehended. This state of the art fence is a wake up call to the federal government to stop the black-hole waste of “virtual” fence technology allocations and get their act together BUILDING REAL FENCE NOW. The nation has spoken, the people want ACTUAL security, they want an ACTUAL fence! And the Minutemen are showing the way—the model is already there in Bisbee, AZ. And if the Feds cannot follow through, then the Minutemen aim to give the nation a border fence, one mile at a time.

Stand up against the left, and against quisling sell-out political agendas, and help the Minutemen get the job done. Help them Build the Fence. Show the world that the America that we love does not care for empty words, we care for action!

Donate now to the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps and help secure America!

The Fences built by the Minuteman have been a driving force compelling the federal government to act, and the ranchers along the border in Arizona say it well, The government wasn’t doing anything until the Minutemen showed up.” Minutemen must continue to keep the pressure on and make the federal government actually “BUILD IT”—talk is cheap, and virtual fence is not actual fence.

Ask yourself three main questions about your personal security in the face of opposition from the Congress, Mexico, LaRaza and an alliance of Minutemen and secure border critics.

1) Why NOT Continue to Build Fence? Our Fence, featured in National Geographic magazine, is the best and most affordable, most effective model in the nation.


2) What can I do to complete the Minuteman Border Fence at the Hodges Ranch?


Our fence construction is completely supported by private donations. The Minutemen are a volunteer organization and will only build fence sections as donations are available.

.3) What must I do to help the Minutemen Keep the Pressure on—aren’t the Feds building fence now? The Feds are wasting millions of dollars on failed “virtual” fence technology allocations, stalling and delaying construction of “ACTUAL” barrier fence—because there is NO POLITICAL WILL IN WASHINGTON TO SECURE OUR BORDERS! DON’T FALL FOR THEIR PUBLIC RELATIONS “CHARM OFFENSIVE”—WE NEED TO KEEP BUILDING AND KEEP THE PRESSURE ON THEM!

Finish the Hodges Minuteman Border Fence Now!

There is hope on the horizon to demonstrate to the nation and the Feds WHAT WORKS, but it will take the same stalwart dedication you have already shown. With your support we will be able to construct a barrier that will set the Fence standard for the Feds of ACTUAL, affordable impenetrability—thwarting the attempts of illegal aliens to invade this country.

It will cost about $400,000 to finish the Hodges Ranch span and install full security FOMGuard technology in the ground at $250 per foot of fence.

I know it’s a lot of money. But we cannot secure America on the cheap. And this is vastly less expensive and vastly more effective than the federal government costs for what little physical fencing they are actually getting into the ground.


We are asking everyone who has already generously sacrificed to immediately send a $50 Donation Today. Doing so will complete our current project in Bisbee, AZ, and greatly empower our allies in Congress who want to show Washington a working model of ACTUAL, affordable FENCE!
