Yet another railroad job... the notorious Johnny Sutton.

It's not just Ignacio Ramos, Jose Compean, Gilmer Hernandez and David Sipe who have suffered for upholding the laws of this nation as they took an oath to do. Now, we have Gary Brugman, another Border Patrol agent whose story is frighteningly similar to those recounted here before.

Thanks to Harp O'Fly, who posted the link, you can read Brugman's story, in his own words, here.

How many more are being persecuted to satisfy George Bush's pro-illegal urges? How many are in jail already because of Johnnie Sutton's unconstitutional tactics?

Why is Johnnie Sutton not behind bars?

Why is George Bush still in office?

And, just as important, why is Congress silent? Supposedly, Sen Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) wanted to hold hearings into the beating of Ignacio Ramos in prison; her party's "leadership," which controls Congress, has postponed the hearings with no reason given.

This is a case where those who have power to right the monstrous wrongs being perpetrated by agencies of our government, yet remain silent, must bear some of the guilt.

When Johnnie Sutton finally faces justice for his actions, it will not do for him to say he was "only following orders." The order-giver, and his enablers, must be punished as well.

I'd settle for stopped. I should, but don't, care if Bush and Co. are punished. I want all these people stopped. All of them.
The democratic plans under their 911 report would more or less give the suttons of this government even more power to run over citizens.
If their punishment involves making restitution, I'd be all for it.

HarpO -- I would settle for removal from office and a requirement that each of them make personal restitution to these five men and their families -- and whoever else they have persecuted unjustly.

No, let me amend that. I would also want to hold them personally responsible for the illegals they want to let in (and have already let in) the country.

Today while driving I was thinking about your posts. My husband spends his day working on people being legal. Yes, he works for the INS. He deals with a lot of desperate people when he has to spend time on the help emails when he is not working on the computer projects.
It is interesting to me that he sees another side, the human side of people wanting to be here legally.

justfly -- there is no question that legal immigrants are a benefit to the nation.

If for no other reason than fairness to those who come here the hard way, the flow of illegals -- from everywhere -- needs to be stopped.

I wonder if/how many more stories there are? That agent's story was unnerving - he should have never gone to prison on the word of a FREAKIN' ILLEGAL ALIEN.
