It's a great day for our friends, the Ramos, and Compean family's, and it's been a great day for the Chicago Minutemen, our friends, and supporters, who volunteered their time selflessly for two years, under every type of weather condition, exhibiting a relentless resolve to put an end to this travesty of justice by engaging in demonstrations, and programs of public awareness.
Without elaborating on the case at this time, I feel that a presidential pardon should have been granted rather than a sentence commutation, but we can still pursue justice later while the statute of limitations is still running on our side.
This endeavor was a group effort, and it was a good example to illustrate what can be accomplished when a group of people with a sense of purpose, unite for a common cause.
I feel very proud of all of the volunteers in the Chicago Minuteman Project, and our affiliate organizations, particularly; Minutemen Midwest, IFIRE, The American Freedom Riders, The FIRE Coalition, The Fox Valley Citizens, Reverend Anthony Williams - Black Coalition Against Illegal Immigration, the Citizens Security Network, and to the hundreds of organizations around the country, including Hawaii, who stood united nationally, and wouldn't let this miscarriage of justice die.
A job well done, I couldn't feel prouder of a finer group of patriots.
Director- Chicago Minuteman Project
