Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist is issuing a call to citizen volunteers — 3,500 of them by next May, he hopes — to “stop an invasion” at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Gilchrist said “Operation Normandy” is designed to stem the tidal wave of illegal immigrants crossing the border for access to food, housing, health care, and education, according to WorldNetDaily.

In an email to WND, Gilchrist estimated that the operation will “dwarf” his previous call issued in April 2005 for “Minutemen” to come to the border.

“If you are familiar with the Normandy invasion of France in 1944,” Gilchrist wrote, “then you have an idea how large and logistically complicated this event will be.

“However, there will be one minor difference. We are not going to the border to invade anyone. We are going there to stop an invasion.”

Gilchrist wants to cover the 2,000-mile border from San Diego, California, to Brownsville, Texas; “Operation Normandy” is scheduled to begin on May 1, 2015, and end on May 30, 2015.

WND also received a working paper from Gilchrist that compares the current influx of tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors from Central America into the U.S. at the Mexico border to “an offensive” military operation.

“This offensive is an invasion, not led by troops, but by divisions of mothers, children and young adults marching north from Central America and Mexico,” Gilchrist wrote.

“It is an offensive that shows no signs of slowing down but instead is spreading to other nations, putting America in even greater peril,” he added. “Patriots around our nation are sounding the alarm as the Middle East and parts of Africa also pour their legions into Mexico that so they, too, can march north into the United States.”

What’s more, Gilchrist warned that the U.S. is rapidly becoming a Latin American nation while Mexico and Central America literally transfer their populations into America — and using children as the tip of the spear.

“It is very clever of the pro-illegal alien, anti-rule of law criminal elements in Mexico and the United States to use unwitting children as weapons in their assault upon the sovereignty of the United States,” he said.

“These criminals know very well that the U. S. Border Patrol will warmly welcome these children and essentially provide protective and privileged custody for them indefinitely, until they are in the custody of someone, some organization, or some family in the United States. Once established in a household or an orphanage, each of the children will be followed by several dozen relatives and friends also from south of the border,” he charged.

WND attempted unsuccessfully to obtain comment from U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement in the Department of Homeland Security on the plan, as well from the National Border Patrol Council of the AFL-CIO, the U.S. Border Patrol labor union.
