GOPUSA ILLINOIS Daily Clips - April 20, 2008

DAILY HERALD
-- FROM THE ARTICLE: Rick Biesada, director of the state Minuteman Project, cited 2003 testimony by the assistant director of the FBI saying the card is easily obtained through fraud and forgery and is not a reliable method of identification. Wearing a hat proclaiming himself an "Undocumented Border Control Agent," Biesada said his group was here to "educate people." "They're aiding and abetting criminals," said Biesada, of Lindenhurst. "The only people who would need (a matricula consular) is an illegal alien." As he and his supporters waved flags and signs with messages such as "It's the Illegal Part Stupid," cars driving past honked. The honks were accompanied by roughly equal numbers of thumbs up -- and raised middle fingers.

The GOP is going to fight the matter, assisted by attorney Bert Odelson . . . We want to take it to court . . . We just feel like we were jolted out of the process."
