David Duke Wanted to Secure the Border Before It Was Cool

Back in 1977, citizens securing the border from illegal immigrants was the province of the Ku Klux Klan, led by one David Duke. Prescott Courier, October 26, 1977
David Duke, Grand Dragon of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Tuesday announced the official beginning of the "Klan Border Watch." "We will be here as long as it takes to meet the response" of the illegal alien problem, said the 27-year-old leader of the white supremacist group. Duke said about 230 Klan members will patrol the border in Southern California, with another 150 in Texas ... Duke, of Metairie, La., claimed the Klan "has the support of the American people" in helping the border patrol stem the influx of illegal aliens into this country. He claimed the illegal aliens take jobs away from U.S. citizens.
30 years later, when the Minutemen of Jim Gilchrist began doing the same thing, it was mainstream enough so that the foreword to his book (written with Jerome Corsi, of birther conspiracies) was written by sitting Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo. 10 years after that, even the establishment Cuban Republican in the presidential race is focusing on "securing the border," while we have a half-Cuban man born in Canada having recently taken the position of urging deportation of all illegal immigrants. I think the GOP protests too much about the KKK.
