Pardon The Border Agents Pt.II and Linkfest

Happy Thursday. Only a few more days left till Christmas, and let's give these Border Agents families a good present (from US Newswire, but they are having some link issues, was at 11:33 on 12/20)

In a continuing effort to pressure President George Bush to pardon U.S. border agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean who are scheduled to begin serving their decade long prison terms for apprehending a drug smuggling illegal alien at our border, Grassfire.org will join Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (CA-46) and present more than 155,000 petitions demanding their pardon during a national news conference.

When: Thursday, December 21, 2007 at 1:30 pm PST

Where: Old Orange County Courthouse (Front Steps), 211 West Santa Ana Blvd., Santa Ana, CA 92701

"Because of the actions of these two agents, more than a million dollars in illegal drugs were stopped from being sold to our children. Bringing felony charges against them is simply outrageous," says Steve Elliott, president of Grassfire.org, a national issues advocacy organization that has been at the forefront rallying support for the convicted border agents since the story first made headlines. "These men stood heroically for us at the border, and now it is our opportunity to stand up for them."

I discussed this previously here. It is a very simple issue. Sending agents to jail for doing their jobs is idiotic. Plus, who will want to take a job as a border agent at a time we need to control the borders? You can still sign the petition at Grassfire.org.

Oh, and did I mention that the illegal alien is suing the agents for violating his civil rights? Only in liberal areas of the USA. And that another story from US Newswire (sorry, their links are issued, it was at 15:53 on 12/20) discusses 23 illegal aliens being indicted for identity theft?

    They absolutely should be pardoned without delay. I was very happy to see my Congressman sign the letter requesting the pardon. If there is any semblance of justice at the federal level, they will be pardoned. Unfortunately, I’m not holding my breath.
