...as George Bush's pro-illegal lackeys go after yet another American law-enforcement officer in a continuing effort to keep "Mr Decider's" corrupt pals in Mexico City happy by throwing the borders wide open.
As WorldNet Daily reports:
A Texas town has launched a "Free Gilmer" campaign on behalf of Deputy Sheriff Gilmer Hernandez, who has been convicted of firing a weapon at fleeing illegals, and is scheduled for sentencing in March.
U.S. Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, brought the issue to the attention of Congress recently, where he outlined the circumstances under which Hernandez fired several shots, including one that left one illegal alien with a minor injury.
"Mr. Speaker, in the small border town of Rocksprings, Texas, where drug smugglers and human smugglers sneak across the Rio Grande into America, lone Deputy Sheriff Gilmer Hernandez was on patrol. In the stillness of the vast night, a speeding Suburban runs a red light. Deputy Hernandez, 25, stops the vehicle, but suddenly, without warning, the vehicle takes off.
"Deputy Hernandez says the vehicle tried to run him down. The lawman fires several shots, one of which shoots out the rear tire, just like in the movies. The vehicle stops, and eight or nine illegals jump out and take off running into the sagebrush," he said.
The U.S. government then rounds up the illegals and, "Guess what, prosecutes Deputy Hernandez, claiming he recklessly discharged his firearm and uses the illegals as witnesses against the lawman during a trial," he said.
"Mr. Speaker, another example of how the Federal Government is more concerned about people illegally invading American than it is about the men who protect America," he said.
Though not mentioned here, other sources report that Deputy Hernandez faces ten years in prison.
Sounds like the same tactics -- from the same cast of characters, including federal persecutors from the Texas region -- used to railroad Border Patrol agents Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos.
If this continues, Bush and his fellow put-illegals-first stooges will probably achieve their goal, which appears to be to make law-enforcement and Border Patrol offices jump in their cars and run whenever they see people they suspect might be illegals.
After all, if enforcing the laws means jail time for the officers while the illegals get preferential treatment -- including a Green Card given to the drug-smuggler who was willing to lie on the stand to convict Compean and Ramos -- and government officials are free to commit perjury, withhold evidence and otherwise manipulate the system to destroy the lives of American citizens, there is little incentive for any peace officer to do his or her job.
This must be what Bush calls "comprehensive immigration reform."
