For all of us out there who believe that it's about damn time that our federal government actually provides some physical security for our borders—and summarily deports illegal aliens and criminal alien residents too—at least we have a little good news these days.
With the advent of the Minuteman Project, the federal government is finally paying attention.
So . . . guess who's reading my VDARE.com column on Monday nights?
It's the public relations folks at the headquarters of the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division.
Eat your heart out, Treason Lobby!
How do I presume to know this? Well, a VDARE.com reader informed me that my VDARE.com postings from the evening of June 27 were sent around in an internal e-mailing to all ICE employees called "ICE Clips" early the following morning on June 28.
The "ICE Clips" e-mail broadcast is a daily collection of news summaries and links to newspaper articles that cover some aspect of ICE operations, including many with official quotes from ICE managers or public relations officers. [Click here for the "Ice Clips" e-mail]
On June 28, ICE's Office of Public Affairs and Internal Communications made sure to include summaries and links to these freshly-posted VDARE.com items:
ICE's media monitors could also have been alerted to my VDARE.com features from my heads-up posting on Michelle Malkin's Immigration Blog.
And they could have found the articles from an up-to-the-minute link provided by Glenn Spencer's American Patrol.
Hats off to ICE for circulating these columns to all of their employees . . . and welcome aboard VDARE.com.
Stay tuned to VDARE.com as well as other web sites of the REAL immigration reform movement. You'll be glad you did.
