...Border Patrol agents Jose Compean* and Ignacio Ramos will enter a federal prison to serve 11 and 12 years in prison for the "crime" of trying to take down an illegal-alien drug smuggler.
George Bush, Mexico's bought-and-paid-for lapdog in Washington, DC, has not responded to requests that he pardon the two agents. Those requests have included pleas from some members of Congress, and more than 250,000 citizens who have signed the petition posted by Grassfire.org.
Tomorrow will be a sad day for this nation. While a habitual offender who has repeatedly violated drug and immigration laws goes free, two dedicated Americans, who risked their lives to do the job they were asked to do, will be behind bars.
Why? Because George Bush wants it that way. There can be no doubt that this farce was orchestrated by the White House. A simple order to the Justice Department could have stopped the persecution, but no such order was given.
If Compean and Ramos are imprisoned tomorrow, I hope the quarter-million real Americans who have supported them will band together to begin an effort that will only end when Bush, those in the so-called "Justice" Department who railroaded the agents and all members of Congress who did not protest this travesty are removed from office in disgrace.
In the meantime, I hope you will join me in making some phone calls to let the true criminals in this story know how you feel:
The White House: 202-456-1414
Justice Department: 202-514-2001
Call both your Senators' offices, too.
I hold no illusions that this will help. Once those in power choose to side with drug-smuggling illegals against their own people, the corruption has settled in too deeply.
It is past time for those of us who care about our nation, who put the rule of law over political expediency, to find a way to take our country back from those who are willing and eager to sell us out.
None of us are safe from the evil that claimed Compean and Ramos. The next victim could be you. Or me.
* I have seen Compean's name spelled two different ways, and have used both. I believe this one is correct.
