I don’t know if you are aware of the alarming trend at our southern border but I think you should be. No, no, no, I am not talking about illegal immigration, that is an alarming trend for sure but if you aren’t aware of it you probably don’t have television, radio, or internet, in which case this post would be pointless. No, I am talking about the persecution of border patrol agents by our own government and the government of Mexico. Bull, you say. Not so, consider this for instance. Two border patrol agents, Compean and Ramos, shot at and did shoot in the buttocks a drug smuggler who was coming across the border with something along the line of seven hundred pounds of marijuana in his van. The subject fled back to Mexico. When the agents ended up being dragged into court and prosecuted by the Justice Department and sentenced to jail, the Mexican government was intimately involved in the case. The Justice Dept. gave amnesty to the drug smuggler in order to obtain his testimony against the agents. I’m sorry, you took the word of an admitted drug smuggler against two agents of the government in a trial and gave him amnesty for the crimes they were attempting to arrest him on. Holy crap!
Another border control agent was sentenced to two years in prison for “improperly lifting the arms of a 15-year-old drug smuggling suspect while handcuffed — in what the Justice Dept. called a deprivation of the teenager’s constitutional right to be free from the use of unreasonable force.” Are you kidding me, there was no alleged beating, no shooting, no he pulled on his arms all wrong, and the Mexican government and consulate filed to have this agent, Jesus E. Diaz Jr., tried for this travesty. And he was prosecuted by our government for the Mexican government I surmise seeing as how the Dept. of Homeland Security and the ICE office of professional responsibility cleared him of any wrong doing.
Since when does the Mexican government have a say in how we police the border on our own sovereign land? This is America, not Mexico, and when criminals come across the border I don’t care what our agents are doing to stop the drug, human, and terrorism trafficking coming north. I don’t want to see any of that where I am, do you? You would think Mexico believes they have a right to the entire American southwest to include off-limits treatment of their citizens illegally smuggling things into our country. Well, that is BS. What does Mexico do with their southern border? Oh, dear reader, Mexico has militarized their southern border with Guatemala and actively captures, detains, and deports illegal immigrants on-sight. We should really call Mexico out on their hypocrisy while they moan and complain about our borders. So, why are we capitulating to this garbage? I don’t know, do you?
