The Ignacio Ramos assault...

...which occurred on Saturday night, is fully described here.

In the article, Monica Ramos recounts a phone call she received from her husband: "[he said]...they kept kicking and kicking. And they kept calling him in Spanish a **** immigration officer, saying 'darle, darle,' which means, 'give it to him.' They were cussing him out in Spanish. He couldn't fight back he was outnumbered."

According to [Joe] Loya, Ramos's father-in-law, Ramos also said of the attack: "They kicked me in the head, they kicked me all over the body. I'm all bruised and very sore."

"As of the time we talked this afternoon, the prison still hadn't given him any medical treatment," Monica Ramos said, adding that he told her, "'I asked all day yesterday. I’m in a lot of pain and I have blood coming out of my left ear.'"

Ramos told his wife the only reason the prison was letting him call her on Monday, was because the Congress [in the person of Rep. Dana Rohrbacher] intervened, otherwise he wouldn't have been permitted any calls at all.

With every passing day, George Bush and his lapdogs in the government have more and more to answer for.

And where are the howls of outrage? The P.O.W.s at Guantanamo Bay are treated like royalty compared to two American citizens who were trying to enforce the nation's laws by arresting an illegal-alien drug smuggler.

The hypocrisy of the "open-borders" crowd is all too apparent. It's bad enough when they are willing to sacrifice the jobs and savings of Americans to satisfy their buddies South of the border. Now, clearly, they are willing to sacrifice the health and, I'm afraid, lives of Americans to suit their twisted agenda.

It is odd that such courageous champions of human rights like, Cindy Sheehan, Jane Fonda, and the code pink crowd, only seem to care when the downtrodden they champion are not US citizens, and many times, not innocent.

Hell, if all these people, and many of our elected officials, can kiss up to what's left of Fidel's ass, ignoring his imprisoned dissidents, I guess people being railroaded to prison, and maybe death, here don't matter, either.
