- Minutemen protest New Year baby contest reversal
PHOENIX, Az. - The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (MCDC) cites the actions of
Babies "R" Us, a division of toymaker Toys "R" Us, for their "mishandling"
of their "First Baby" contest - in which Gainesville's first baby of 2007
was originally declared the grand prize inner.
MCDC says its an example of "corporate America's malfeasance" and says such
actions continue to provoke an increase in illegal immigration" throughout
our nation, and has started a petition drive admonishing Babies "R" Us for
Jayden Swain was originally declared the grand prize winner from among four
babies around the country born at the stroke of midnight New Year's Eve. But
immigrant advocates soon began protesting when they learned one infant had
been disqualified because of a contest rule stating that the parents must be
legal residents of the U.S. Over the weekend, Babies "R" Us declared all
four babies grand prize winners of a $25,000 savings bond and other prizes.
The Minutemen Rather says "rather than uphold the rules of their contest or
support the immigration laws of our country, Babies "R" Us has caved into
the pressure from the open borders lobby, thereby amplifying the
pre-existing illegal immigration crisis plaguing our country. "
"Babies "R" Us and other large corporations, needs to understand that their
actions serve as encouragement to illegal aliens who trample our laws and
threaten our public safety" said Chris Simcox, founder and president of the
Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. "We cannot allow corporate America or our
government to spurn more illegal immigration, and therefore we believe it is
important for citizens to sign our petition and let them know how we feel."
The petition Minuteman petition says, "We the undersigned do hereby request
that Babies "'R" Us and their parent company Toys "'R" Us abide by the laws
of this country and take the appropriate actions to ensure that their
contests and business practices do not encourage an increase in support for
the actions of illegal aliens, who have already violated the laws of the
United States. As a legal taxpayer of the United States, I shall not
purchase products or services from companies that choose to encourage
individuals who will thwart our laws and threaten my public safety."
