HOUSE COLLEAGUES JOIN JONES TO DECRY SENTENCING OF U.S. BORDER PATROL AGENTS, REQUEST PRESIDENTIAL PARDON
Washington, D.C. – In a letter today to President George W. Bush, eleven House colleagues joined Third District Representative Walter B. Jones (R-NC) to express their deep disappointment over the sentencing of U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean, and to request both an investigation and a Presidential Pardon to prevent the agents from unjustly going to prison for protecting our nation’s borders from an illegal drug smuggler. The letter’s signatories include Reps. Pete Sessions (R-TX), Ted Poe (R-TX), Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), Dan Burton (R-IN), Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL), Gary Miller (R-CA), Sue Myrick (R-NC), Ed Royce (R-CA), Steve King (R-IA), Virgil Goode (R-VA) and Tom Tancredo (R-CO), Chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus.
On October 19th, United States Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean were convicted and sentenced to 11 and 12 years in federal prison respectively. Both Ramos and Compean will appeal these sentences through their counsel.
“Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean attempted to apprehend a Mexican drug smuggler who brought 743 pounds of marijuana across the U.S. border last year,” the letter states. “The two agents were prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the smuggler was granted full immunity to testify against the agents. Both men were convicted by a Texas jury for firing shots at the fleeing smuggler, who they believed carried a gun.”
“During this case there have been numerous questions raised about the accuracy of the charges against the agents, the conduct of the prosecutor, and whether the drug smuggler was armed and dangerous at the border,” the letter continues.
“We ask that a full investigation of this case be ordered immediately. We are confident that during such an investigation you will find that these border patrol agents were acting within the scope of their duty and were unjustly prosecuted,” the letter states. “Also, we ask that you use your power of Presidential Pardon, as granted by the United Stated Constitution in Article II, Section 2, to pardon these two border patrol agents. We understand these requests usually are for those that have already completed their sentences; however we feel in this case it would be a miscarriage of justice to send these two border patrol agents to prison for protecting our nation’s borders from an illegal drug smuggler.”
“On January 17th, 2007, both agents Ramos and Compean must surrender themselves to federal authorities unless action is taken to overturn this unjust result. We ask that you use your power to both investigate this case and pardon these agents so to avoid the unjust prison sentence facing them,” the letter concludes.

Ted Poe asks "Who's side are we on?"
More news from the second front: the battle for the border continues and our government is on the wrong side. The fate of two Texas Border Agents are on the line as a result of our government putting the rights of an illegal drug smuggler before those of American citizens. What is to become of our country when our own government takes sides with illegals? Read more....

Kanof sets precedent for avalanche of litigation.
Because of Johnny Sutton, Debra Kanof, and her gang, we now have a militia of slip and fall type lawyers going door to door looking for illegal aliens to sue the Border Patrol on behalf of illegal aliens. There are comercials on hispanic television channels asking illegal aliens to call and sue American law enforcement.
