The Minuteman Project is giving up on plans to participate in a March 4 Patriots Day parade in Laguna Beach, and now has its eye on a San Juan Capistrano event. The anti-illegal immigration group sued for a spot in the parade, but on Feb. 7 an Orange County Superior Court judge declined to order Laguna Beach organizers to include it. Minuteman Project co-founder Jim Gilchrist responded by saying that as many as 1,500 of the group's supporters would attend as spectators.

From the cab, he studies the valley below with night-vision goggles, Ruger revolver strapped to his ribs.

The Minuteman Project, an anti-illegal immigration group, has been refused entry by a second Orange County parade. Last month, the border patrol group was barred by organizers of Laguna Beach's 40th annual Patriots Day parade, which takes place Saturday. On Thursday came a second rejection: Organizers of the March 25 Swallows Day Parade in San Juan Capistrano said they wouldn't let the group march either.

A volunteer border watch group has started erecting a mile of steel-mesh fence along the U.S.-Mexico border east of Naco. Minuteman Civil Defense Corps spokesman Al Garza said the fence will force illegal immigration traffic to the east and west. It also will "let the government know that it's not as difficult to secure the borders as they lead us to believe," he said.

An activist opposing illegal immigration who drove his van into a crowd of protesters in Garden Grove will not be charged, police said Thursday, prompting anger from detractors. A van driven by Hal Netkin hit several people protesting an appearance Wednesday night by James Gilchrist, whose Minuteman citizen patrol last month monitored the Mexican border in Arizona for illegal crossers.
