Nativist Minuteman Leader Jim Gilchrist Claims Child Immigrants Are 'Human Shields'

Jim Gilchrist rides again!

Right Wing Watch:

Jim Gilchrist, the founder of the anti-immigrant militia group the Minuteman Project, claimed last month that child refugees at the southern border are being used as “human shields” in a “concerted effort” to eliminate immigration enforcement, warning that the United States is “becoming a Latin American nation.”


You may remember Gilchrist from Dave Neiwert's excellent posts about his association with Shawna Forde.

It seemed as though Gilchrist and his Minutemen had doomed themselves with those associations, but here he is again, popping up like the bad penny he is.
