Reason #1,294,330 to get your CCW

"We are going to target them in a specific way," said Executive Director Gustavo Torres. Casa representatives will go out with cameras and video cameras to record the Minutemen, but that will only be the first step, he said.

"Then we are going to picket their houses, and the schools of their kids, and go to their work," Torres said. "If they are going to do this to us, we are going to respond in the same way, to let people know their neighbors are extremists, that they are anti-immigrant. They are going to hear from us."

Call me paranoid, but that sounds like a threat.

It seems the Maryland Minutemen are having a chilling effect on the livelihood of illegal aliens in Montgomery County, MD. Casa de Maryland, a taxpayer funded social(ist) organization, is not at all happy with having their invisible constituency pulled into the light of day. Casa has decided that its OK to stalk the children of the Minutemen!
Among other ugly things, this statement raises the specter of Casa de Maryland spying on the children of Minutemen at their homes and stalking them to determine where they go to school.
The illegals have already shown their willingness to harass and assault the law-abiding photographers who document the transactions occurring at day laborer pickup points in the county. On February 11,
Stephen Schreiman was taking photographs of the day laborers who gather near Grace United Methodist Church in Gaithersburg.

Thirty minutes later, he said his eye hurt and he had a throbbing headache.

By noon, he was in the Gaithersburg police station, filing charges of simple assault against a man he claims aimed a laser pointer at him and his camera.

Constitutional Law Attorney Gary G. Kreep, of the United States Justice Foundation said "Harassing and frightening little children at their schools is not authorized, or protected, by state or federal law, and appears to be intended to convey a threat to the parents that if they do not knuckle under to the political correctness demanded by Mr. Torres, their children will be in danger. The United States Justice Foundation hereby offers to take whatever legal action is necessary or appropriate to protect these children and to protect the Constitutional rights of the members of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps."

After discussing the matter with a colleague, we came to the conclusion that even with this clear-cut threat to the safety of the Minutemen and their families that the social engineers at the State PD will only start issuing CCW's after at least one kid is dead.
