*INGLEWOOD, CA – The Front Page show on KJLH-FM will host a live on-air town hall meeting on illegal immigration and its effects on the African-American community with Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project.

The show will air live on Tuesday, July 8 from 4:30 a.m. to 6 a.m. on KJLH 102.3 FM and online at kjlhradio.com.  Callers can participate by calling 520-KJLH (5554) from any Southern California area code or by tweeting questions and comments to @kjlhfrontpage or on Facebook at facebook.com/frontpageshow.

With national unemployment hovering around 10 percent and black male unemployment at a staggering 17.6 percent, many African-Americans do not believe that illegal immigrant workers are doing the jobs that Americans won’t do.

In addition, while some local Democrats hailed President Barack Obama’s announcement last week that he plans to use executive authority to make changes to the nation’s immigration system, a large contingency of African-Americans in Southern California continue to be concerned over the fate of unaccompanied Central American children who have surged to the Texas border and are now being brought to California for processing.

Jim Gilchrist founded the Minuteman Project on October 1, 2004 after years of frustrated efforts trying to get the U.S. government to enforce existing immigration laws.  Mr. Gilchrist is a passionate defender of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and an avid supporter of law enforcement organizations.  He believes he is only one of millions of 21st century minutemen / women / children who want the U.S. to remain governed by the “rule of law” and who want proactive enforcement of our national security protections and our immigration legal code.
