America First: Summit on National Security is almost here! Get ticket details for this October 15th event at . Chris Simcox, keynote speaker and co-founder of the Minutemen, will take time from his hectic schedule to give us a first-hand report from the border. Joining him will be many minority and immigrant leaders who put America First. Despite what the press would have you believe about us, the speakers look like Americans...red, yellow, black, brown and white…and include a doctor, a lawyer and even an Indian who wants to be Chief (chief elected official of Tennessee, that is!) Confirmed speakers include: Robert Vasquez, Bob & Bonnie Eggle, Yeh Ling-Ling, Dr. Madeleine Cosman, Keith Butler, Kevin Fobbs, Carl “Two-Feathers” Whitaker, Terry Anderson, Dave Gorak, Susan Tully, Joseph Daleiden, Frank Penn. (Request their biographical information from us.)



Indiana bank rewards illegal aliens with home loans. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Bank Calumet even threw them a party complete with a Mariachi Band and a $500 gift certificate from a local store. That’s the same type of treatment citizens get, right? I wonder what the reward would be we broke the law and didn’t pay our taxes? Perhaps a pair of matching silver bracelets and an all expense paid “vacation” in a luxurious federal institution? Here is the newspaper story about the bank loans: Many of our supporters contacted the bank to express their displeasure. With the help of FAIR and the Chicago Minutemen, IFIRE picketed the bank on September 3. Read about it here. We had so much fun, we’re doing it again. We continue to hear from more people who are closing their accounts.



Protest at Bank Calumet this weekend, September 24, 2005 at 9am. New location: 750 Ridge Road, Munster, IN. Bring your signs and American flags. This time, we will pass out flyers to employees, customers and passers-by. Contact us for more information.



IFIRE is growing! Dennis Drake, a former Valparaiso resident, is the new Spencer County Director of IFIRE/Indiana Minuteman Chapter. After a successful career in insurance, Dennis retired and now lives in the southern Indiana town of Santa Claus. He is still active in church, hunting, and gun & rifle clubs. You may welcome Dennis or volunteer to help him with IFIRE and Minuteman activities by emailing him through our contact page.



IFIRE and ICIC will testify at the Interim Study Committee on Public Security and Regulatory Matters on October 6, 2005 in the Senate Chambers beginning at 10:00 a.m. The general public may testify on issues such as identity theft and the Real ID Act. At the September 21st committee meeting, the BMV testified about implementing the REAL ID Act. It contains many excellent provisions. Evidence of lawful status must be supplied before a driver’s license is issued. The BMV handout said, “The State shall not accept any foreign document, other than an official passport…” That would seem to eliminate the Matricula Card.
