In just a few days, on January 17, Agents Ramos and Compean of the US Border Patrol will be forced to report to prison to begin their sentences. In the last few weeks, thousands of Americans, thanks largely to the efforts of groups like Grassfire.org and United Patriots of America, have rallied to their cause demanding that the Bush administration grant these brave men a pardon. In the next few days, we need to continue to flood Capitol Hill with more letters, emails and phone calls. Phone calls are the best means of expressing your opinion at this point as it is nearly too late for letters and emails to have any effect.
As a part of their efforts, Grassfire.org presented 155,000 petitions to US Rep. Dana Rohrabacher at a California Rally held for the two Border Patrol agents. According to a report released by Grassfire.org Rohrabacher has promised to personally deliver those petitions to the White House.
Grassfire.org president, Steve Elliott, has also appeared on FOX News about this issue. The effort helped, as he reported an increase of nearly 40,000 more people signing their petition.
However, these efforts seem to be in vain, as the Bush administration continues to turn a deaf ear to the cry of Americans. The whole case smacks of special treatment and appeasement. For some reason, President Bush seems content to do whatever he can to make the international lawbreakers happy. It is more important to protect drug dealers, child molesters, rapists, and revolutionaries from Mexico than it is to protect innocent, law-abiding Americans.
The conviction of Agents Ramos and Compean is in itself unconstitutional. According to US laws, and illegal alien who has come to this country to commit a felony has no constitutional rights. Yet, these two men were convicted because they violated a Mexican drug smuggler’s Fourth Amendment rights! It seems as if everyone but Americans have constitutional rights these days.
If national security is as important as the administration and Congress claims, then this is the best opportunity to prove it. But, if foreign and globalist agendas are more important, then we shall soon see official evidence of that—by continued silence.
