"Two Texas Border Patrol agents who shot a Mexican drug runner in the backside on the U.S. side of the border are hoping a last-ditch pardon from President Bush will save them from serving more than a decade in prison.

Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean are scheduled to turn themselves in to authorities Wednesday to begin serving 11 and 12 years, respectively, for the February 2005 non-fatal shooting.

Several groups, including Friends of the Border Patrol, The Minutemen and Grassfire.org, have been trying through petitions to keep the agents out of prison ó through either a motion to U.S. District Judge Kathleen Cardone to allow them to remain free on bond during an appeal or through a presidential pardon from Bush. About a dozen rallies took place across the country in support of the agents last week.

"Grassroots support for these gentlemen is just through the roof," said Grassfire.org spokesman Ron De Jong. He said people signing the petitions are saying to themselves, "'something just doesn't add up' and they're starting to make great waves."


======================================================

I just composed and sent both emails and a FAX to the White House about this:

"PARDON THOSE BORDER PATROL AGENTS RIGHT NOW!

How can you possibly allow those agents to go to prison on a trumped-up charge?

You KNOW full-well that allowing those men to enter prison will totally incapacitate all OTHER agents from doing their jobs!

You can issue pardons for drug crimes, bank fraud, mail fraud and the acceptance of a kickback - but you haven't the courage to FULLY PARDON these men who were only doing their JOBS?

Your total display of gutlessness - or complicity - regarding this issue disgusts me.

Even I didn't think you could sink this low."

The WH email addy is: mailto:comments@whitehouse.gov

The WH FAX # is: 202-456-2461

I suggest you contact them - immediately - with your own thoughts. Pete

This is a partial c&p of an email I received a few minutes ago from GrassFire.org:

"While Ron De Jong and I were presenting 304,000 citizen petitions
to Rep. Rohrabacher on Capitol Hill, we were shocked when the
Congressman informed us that the Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) had admitted to members of Congress...

...that they had lied to Congress about the case
against imprisoned agents Ramos and Compean.

Under questioning by Rep. Culberson, a DHS investigator admitted
that his department did NOT have evidence to back up a number of
outrageous claims including: Mexican/American agents Ramos and
Compean "wanted to shoot a Mexican"; confessed to shooting an
unarmed suspect; were belligerent to investigators; lied and
submitted false reports; and stated during the investigation
that the illegal alien did not pose a threat.

In addition, the DHS admitted that it began its prosecution
BEFORE completing their investigation!

this is explosive news and we must now
act swiftly to intensify grassroots pressure--pressure that
is making the difference in this case!

I am asking all members of our team to schedule EMERGENCY FAXES
to the President, the Justice Department, U.S. Attorney Johnny
Sutton, as well as your two Senators, your Representative and
other key leaders."

==============================================

If true, then everyone who owns a fax machine should use this list:

http://www.grassfire...Fax_Targets.htm

to send this message (or one of your own composition):

"I am writing to you because I have become aware of a travesty of justice involving two Border Patrol Agents -- Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. Having just learned that the government has admitted that key aspects of its publicized case against these agents cannot be substantiated, I am demanding an immediate and full-Presidential pardon for these two agents!

This is an outrage and a travesty of our justice system.

Again, I am calling on the powers that be to exonerate Ramos and Compean from the outrageous conviction and sentencing of 11 and 12 years in prison. These men have been betrayed by our government--who put the word of a known drug smuggler over these two honorable officers. Additionally, I am also calling on Congress to launch an immediate investigation into the conduct of the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton.

Itís time for the corruption to be exposed and these innocent agents released immediately."

====================================================

As always, you can get the FAX # for your Rep. and Senator(s) here:

http://www.theorator.com/senate.html
http://www.theorator...ment/house.html

It's the least we can do - and it needs to be done. (I already sent all of mine with the exception of the one to BUsh - his FAX machine's turned off - apparently because he doesn't want to be bothered with the little people on his weekend).
