About Face on Immigration by Chris Simcox?

Five years ago, Chris Simcox began his rise from an obscure newspaper publisher in Tombstone, Arizona -- yes, there really is a town called Tombstone -- to a national figure in the debate over migration across the U.S.-Mexican border.  He called for citizens to bear arms and patrol the border, which eventually led to the creation of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.  Now, the Arizona Daily Star reports that Simcox is being criticized by his former restrictionist allies for some more generous -- most immigration law scholars would characterize some of them as mainstream -- statements on the issue of immigration.  "The children of illegal immigrants who are born in this country are citizens. Period," Simcox said. "It's crazy to think we shouldn't educate them. They want to go door-to-door and remove every person in this country that's here illegally. And I just think that's not a logical plan in how to address the situation."
