American Minutemen Defense National Director, Shawna Forde, was brutally attacked and sexually assaulted in her Everett, Washington, home on December 29th, 2008.
According to the Minutemen website, Ms. Forde had been “investigating drug cartel operations from Nogales to Sells. She had broken in pretty deep as far as locations. She was working on discovering the connections here in [Washington State], along with human trafficking of young girls.”
This attack might be written off as a random act of violence except for the fact that only one week prior to the attack on Ms. Forde, her husband was shot five times, resulting in his hospitalization in ICU. This attack also occurred at their Everett home.
Right or wrong, it’s hard to fault the Minutemen’s willingness to take action on a recognized problem, as opposed to just talk about it. Whether or not their border activities are advisable, illegal immigration is a drain on our economy and must be stopped, just as human trafficking is evil and must be stopped at all costs.
The Fordes have paid a high price to defend and protect the United States as best they know how. Please support them with your prayers.
