Kangaroo Justice for Rio Grande Border Patrol Agents
Words can't do justice to injustice on the US-Mexican border. But how about this: Lou Dobbs excoriates the White House for craven arrogance and indifference over the erroneous imprisonment of two Border Patrol Agents for doing their job, i.e., interdicting drug shipments from Mexico. Convicted, they must report to their respective federal prisons on 17 January 2007.
CNN's Lou Dobbs Tonight updates the border agents' case on 28 December 2006.
After the 110th Congress convened days later, the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General told Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) he will have to file a Freedom of Information Act request to get his report about charges and subsequent incarceration of Border Patrol Agents Compean and Ramos.
On 10 February 2007, Rep. Tom Tancerdo (R-CO) announces Agent Ramos' beating by four illegal Mexican aliens incarcerated with him at the federal facility in Yazoo City, Mississippi.
