An earlier thread on recently convicted U.S. Border Patrol agents Jose Alonso Compean and Ignacio Ramos was archived so I just wanted to paste this link where people can go to voice their outrage and protest their conviction. My own two cents says the Bush Administration is pandering to the whims of the Mexican government in allowing this judicial abomination and is apparently not receptive to calls for them to be pardoned. I feel this is a complete disgrace and hypocracy from an administration that boasts it does the utmost for homeland security.
From CNN's Lou Dobbs website: http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/lou.dobbs.tonight/
"To support border patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, contact the White House at: email@example.com or call 202-456-1111. You can also send an e-mail to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-514-2001.
I hope by some miracle or even divine intervention, this heinous miscarriage of justice can be overturned. Show your anger and contempt for this terrible act toward two men who were merely doing the job they were hired to do.
