Jim Gilchrist, MBA, CPA Biography

Founder and President of The Minuteman Project
Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"

“I think there may be as many as 33 millions illegals in the United States. By granting amnesty, we’ll send a message that our immigration laws are not enforced and the more of you get in here, the greater the chances of getting amnesty. If this law [Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006, S2611] is passed, I would say that by the year 2025, we may have another 150 million illegals and we’ll be a nation governed by mob rule.”
