Minuteman activist plans ‘illegal immigration forum’ tonight at Willmar Library

WILLMAR ­— California resident and former Minnesota resident Ron Branstner, a longtime activist in various Minuteman efforts, will lead a “illegal immigration forum” from 6 to 8 p.m. today at the Willmar Public Library.

The event is billed as “an open forum discussion on the growing number of illegal immigrants and its effect on small communities in the Midwest.This will be led by a guest speaker from The Minutemen Border Watch of Arizona and California.”

Branstner will first review “the atrocities” that he says he has seen while on border watch with the Minutemen on the Arizona and California borders with Mexico, then move to talk about the impact of undocumented immigrants on American communities.
