Victim of Bush Administration's War on the Border Patrol

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

A living symbol of George W. Bush's effort to erase the U.S. southern border, former Border Patrol agent Ignacio Ramos is wasting away in solitary confinement in a federal correctional facility:

A congressional aide who visited Ignacio Ramos in prison said the convicted Border Patrol agent appeared emaciated, losing more than 30 pounds in solitary confinement.

Ramos, who is appealing his 11-year sentence for the non-lethal shooting of a Mexican drug smuggler, has been in a "special housing unit" since he was beaten by inmates in February at the medium-security Federal Correctional Complex in Yazoo City, Miss., said Tara Setmayer, spokeswoman for Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif.

"He was very happy to see me, but, overall, he was very emotional," Setmayer told WND. "He is demoralized. Languishing in solitary for 135 days takes its toll on anyone."

The men who bloodied Ramos with kicks from steel-toed boots are in the same unit, Setmayer said.

Had Enough said:

What Ramos and Compean did should have been handled by the IA of the border patrol with suspension or other administrative punishment not bush & gonzales buddy johnny sutton (of course sutton was not fired because he has done nothing but prosecute the citizens of this country).

Another example is Dog Chapman. There is no way he will survive if he is sent to a mexican prison.

All of these people were targeted by the mexican government and bush obliged.

This is a sad commentary for this country. You should make time between your calls to the senate to call the whitehouse and demand that all 3 men are given back their lives.
