"How do you admit the illegals?"


Monica & Nacho's youngest son, has been hospitalized. Currently tests are being run so there has not been an absolute diagnosis, however hospital professionals are suspecting meningitis.

The hospital almost denied J's admittance since Monica does not have health insurance (a status of many Americans today). Monica of course is fierce! And she asked the hospital "How do you admit the illegals?" After some debate, the hospital did admit J, but demanded a $1000 deposit. Funds the Ramos family simply does NOT have at this time.

If you could ask your lists/listeners to send donations to the family, this would be useful for them in their time of need. Their address is Ramos Family, P.O. Box 972925, El Paso, TX 79997. Also PRAYERS!! And finally please ask all to call the White House (yet again) to DEMAND the release of Ramos & Compean!!! (Still no word from the appellate court, but of course the drug smuggler admitted in court last week to being a drug smuggler!!)

I love the Ramos family. J has definitely been the most affected child during this whole horrible ordeal with Nacho. How much more does this poor family need to go through? Is this how we pay back a hero who served and protected our country? Shame on this Bush administration!!!!!

Thank you everyone! Please use discretion when forwarding information. And I appreciate each of you!!

Across the border from El Paso TX is Jaurez Mexico

This is an inside look at how Mexico runs it's business. These are some of people Nacho and Jose were protecting us against.

Almost 400 women have been raped, tortured and murdered in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Now evidence suggests that the girls are being killed for 'blood sport.'

How hypocritical, this idiot gets arrested and pleads guilty to the crime these Border officers nailed him for, and yet they still have to stay in jail? People seem to forget that when you commit a crime, you lose your rights period! Yes Compean and Ramos made a mistake by not following proper procedure's, but that should only have gotten them a slap on the hand, not an extended sentence! And we wonder why we have a shortage of soldiers and officers in our border patrol; NOBODY WANTS TO ENLIST BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID OF BEING SACRIFICED BY THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT!!!! This just prove's that idiots crime so the agents should have their sentences reduced and/or removed!!

I think it's stupid those two agents are in prison, its a disgrace, the US attorney is a moron, release those agents, they were protecting us from drug dealers, what nerve you have to compare them to that drug dealer, you jerk!

its about damn time this **** goes to jail.
and the prison time had best be more than what the agents got considering he was arrested and arraigned on FOUR counts of smuggling and attempt to distribute.

I see from the article that mr. sutton still apparently thinks the trial against the agents was proper and no evidence was left out.. boy is he full of cow manure, and ick! does it freaking STINK

If I recall correctly, Ramos heard shots fired and thought he saw Aldrete turn to fire on him with a gun. Doesn't the fact that Aldrete has been convicted of smuggling create a strong possibility that he did in fact have a gun and that is why Ramos shot him. Reasonable doubt for Ramos and Compean, anyone?

Hmmm ...

Let me get this right:

1. Ramos and Compean a) didn't report shooting at a fleeing Mexican, and b) picked up shell casings.
2. Davila was, at the time of the shooting, smuggling 700 lb. of marijuana into the US, a drug that destroys our children.
3. Davila continued to smuggle drugs WHILE he was used as a patsy of the DA.
4. Ramos and Compean rot in jail.

I am ashamed of our country, this administration, and a judicial system that would do this to two law enforcement officers.

Sutton is a real piece of work. He should have been tarred and feathered and FIRED a long time ago. There has been a plea deal worked out for Aldrete and he will receive less time than someone for writing a bad check. This is a PR smoke screen.

DA Sutton should be a co-conspirator in this drug charge. It was his staff that gave Davila a get across the border pass to continue Davila's continued drug smuggling efforts.

I am surprised that DA Sutton actually prosecuted with no interference from the Mexico Consulate. Maybe this is just one situation to seemingly look like they are tough.

I continue to see Help Wanted ads for US Border Patrol. With such people like DA Sutton and Davila that an agent must contend with, why would anyone want that risk of going to jail.

Maybe we should just put a Dairy Queen on the border and give our new guest a Dilly Bar as a treat.

We let our leaders pull the wool over our eyes and say little to defend our borders or our sovernity.

If Osvaldo Aldrete Davila would have never been smuggling drugs the 2 former agents would have never shot him and they would be enjoying their careers. Just another case of 2 people being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Hopefully this will be correctly handled by the Appellate Court and Sutton will, in the end, be disbarred like Nifong.

I would be willing to bet this **** gets a shorter sentence than our BP agents and will be back out smuggling again before the agents get their first parole hearing.
Also, this whole incident sounds like a great argument in favor of the fence. Had their been a sturdy fence there would have been no smuggling, no one would have gotten shot, and no one would be in jail for this incident.
Build the fence now!

Sutton is a jackass. This pompous and arrogant jerk just wants to appear tough by standing on his idiotic prosecution of these two AMERCIANS protecting the AMERICAN border. This is a prime example of why people need ot prepare for the upcoming revolution when clods like Sutton will be held to answer to the PEOPLE he is trying to scam.
TED
The only punishment the border patrol agents should have been given should have been an assignment to the firing range until their hands blistered or they could hit what they were shooting at! If they had eliminated this scum they would probably not have given him the chance to get across the river and to get rid of the gun.
Juanny Sutton probably was getting a cut of the drug money. This whole thing smells like a BIG load of barn yard commodity!

Rohrabacher and Hunter Renew Calls For Border Agents To Be Moved To Minimum Security Facilities
Bureau of Prisons Director Meets With Jailed Agent At Their Request

Washington, DC-April 3, 2008- Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Duncan Hunter (R-CA) renewed their requests yesterday to have wrongly imprisoned Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean moved out of solitary confinement into a minimum security prison camp while awaiting their appeal decision. Rohrabacher and Hunter encouraged Bureau of Prisons Director Harley Lappin to personally meet with Agent Ramos during his visit yesterday, to the Phoenix prison facility where Ramos is being held.
“After enduring 14 months of the harsh conditions of solitary confinement, Mr. Lappin should do the right thing and exercise his authority to move the agents into more humane conditions,” said Congressman Rohrabacher. “They are effectively serving a double sentence for an unjust conviction that may very well be overturned.”
“If agents Ramos and Compean must continue serving their sentences, then they should be moved to a minimum security facility where they will not be threatened and under such restrictive conditions,” said Congressman Hunter.
Both agents Ramos and Compean are confined to their cells for 23 hours a day and completely restricted from any activities afforded to general population inmates, including regular telephone use, daily showers, recreation activities or television access. During a press conference last fall, Rep. Rohrabacher presented a detailed comparison of the treatment of Agents Ramos and Compean versus terror detainees held in Guantanamo Bay and showed the border agents are actually under stricter conditions, with less amenities.
Director Lappin assured Congressman Hunter during a morning telephone call yesterday, that he would take the Congressmen’s request under consideration and report back when a decision is made.
