Can we see a pattern here?

Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean are not the only victims of George Bush's open-borders, pro-Mexican fixation -- A Texas deputy sheriff, Gilmer Hernandez, also faces jail time for doing his job. The evidence that Bush's lackeys willfully broke numerous laws (and ignored the Constitution) in their zeal to make the borders safe for illegals -- including drug smugglers -- continues to mount.

But wait, there's more.

An editorial in today's Washington Times exposes yet another instance of the sickening banana-republic "justice" Americans receive at the hands of our so-called leaders. Excerpts follow:

The case of Border Patrol Agent David Sipe is an alarming example of misplaced priorities. On duty in April 2000 near Panitas, Texas, Mr. Sipe, his partner and two other agents responded to a disrupted motion sensor to find between 12 and 15 illegal aliens crossing the border. Most of the illegals followed the agents' instructions and surrendered, but several attempted to flee...

...In the course of making the arrest, Mr. Sipe struck one of the border crossers, a Mexican national named Jose Guevara, in the head with his flashlight. He said it was necessary, but the U.S. Attorney's office said it wasn't. In 2001, Mr. Sipe, who had no previous complaints against him, was convicted for using excessive force, and dismissed from the Border Patrol. The story doesn't end there, and when the conduct of the prosecuting attorney's office came to light Mr. Sipe was tried again and acquitted.

It turns out that three illegal aliens who testified against Mr. Sipe...received a very nice gift package. The Washington Times reported Monday that the three illegals got Social Security cards, witness fees, travel expenses, living expenses and the use of government telephones to call relatives in Mexico, and were allowed to travel to and from Mexico and to North Carolina...

The U.S. Attorney's office, moreover, covered up the generous benefits it had handed out. It failed to disclose the fact that all three illegal aliens had been living together in the months preceding the trial....[and] when Border Patrol agents stopped Mr. Guevara, again traveling with illegal aliens, they let him go when he flashed the "get out of jail card" he got from the prosecutors. "His arrest with illegal aliens was evidence that he was a transporter," wrote the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in ordering a new trial, "as well as evidence of the extent of the government's support accorded him in order to obtain his testimony."

Does this sound familiar?

Amazingly, David Sipe wants to return to the Border Patrol. But with his record of willingness to uphold the law, I can't imagine Bush's co-conspirators allowing that to happen.

How many times do we have to see this disgusting pattern repeat itself?

For as long as we have a rogue president who is beholden to the corrupt leaders of a foreign country and a pro-illegal-alien, spineless Congress more interested in playing politics and taking bribes than doing the job it is Constitutionally mandated to do.

It is hard to imagine why anyone would want to risk being a broder patrol agent. Maybe if you don't do the job you can enjoy some of the corruption perks. Doing the job gets you in big trouble.

I'm all for "rogue"ness but it should help people as a whole, not be a contradiction that is convenient.

We saw this on the news the other night. The illegal is getting tons of money and this guy lost everything. It's horrible.
