Pardon The Border Agents: House Jumping In With Both Feet

Well, more good news

(CNSNews.com) – Lawmakers may hold hearings on the controversial prosecution of two former Border Patrol agents who shot a Mexican suspected of smuggling drugs into the United States. They want to determine whether the Mexican government played a role in the affair.

Rep. William Delahunt (D-Mass.), chairman of a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee, granted a request to hold hearings "to explore possible foreign influence in the ruthless prosecution of … Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean," according to ranking member Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), who made the request.

Ramos and Compean are serving 11- and 12-year jail terms, respectively, after being convicted of shooting Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila as the suspect fled from Texas into Mexico in February 2005.

"If a foreign government is having an undue influence on the decisions of our government to make concessions for illegal aliens over our law enforcement officers, the American people have a right to know about it."

Gotta give credit where credit is due, as I did before. If the Democrats will hold hearings, fantastic. All kudo's. This issue is not about politics, but what is right. And President Bush needs to get his ASS. IN. GEAR. Because this does not help (via Alarming News through Hot Air)

Bush has been having a hard time lining up support from his own Republican Party for his proposals to establish a guest worker program and a path to citizenship for some of the 12 million undocumented workers already in the United States. He has said he hopes for movement, at least in the Senate, by August, but he faces daunting obstacles.

"In the debate on migration, I remind my fellow citizens that family values do not stop at the Rio Grande River, that there are decent, hardworking honorable citizens of Mexico who want to make a living for their families," Bush said as he stood beside Calderon. "And so, Mr. President, my pledge to you and your government — but, more importantly, the people of Mexico — is I will work as hard as I possibly can to pass comprehensive immigration reform."

To me, that sounds like, well, amnesty. What does it sound like to you?

And, undocumented workers? I wasn't aware that the members of MS-13 that are floating around the Triangle area, here illegally, were working. Violence, vandalism, and drug dealing aren't really jobs.

As Karol writes

Dude. Your first, and only, priority is to the American people. How and why are you making pledges to citizens of other countries to make our government work on their behalf? Who are you? And how come we never got the mad rightwinger in you that we were promised?

Huzzah! It would be a pleasant change if Bush would apply the same standards to fighting illegal immigration as he does to the War on Terror. Especially since the two are linked.
