Are you looking for a new miscarriage of justice?  Well, here it is via this story at CNSNews.com:

The owner of a “stash” house who allegedly worked with a Mexican drug smuggler shot by Border Patrol agents has struck a deal with federal prosecutors.

Cipriano Ortiz-Hernandez pleaded guilty last week to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana. Cybercast News Service reported last month that Ortiz-Hernandez owned the stash house where Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila of Mexico made drug shipments in October 2005.

Ortiz-Hernandez’ plea agreement comes after members of Congress criticized a federal prosecutor for granting a “humanitarian” pass for Aldrete-Davila to enter and exit the United States unescorted. Aldrete Davila, already given immunity for one drug charge, reportedly smuggled more marijuana into the country to be stored at the home of Cipriano Ortiz-Hernandez.

Terms of Ortiz-Hernandez’ plea agreement are sealed. The sentencing hearing is set for Nov. 2.

On Feb. 17, 2005, Aldrete-Davila tried to smuggle more than 700 pounds of marijuana across the Mexican border into Texas. U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean confronted him, and he was shot in the buttocks while escaping on foot back into Mexico.

Federal prosecutors struck a deal with Aldrete-Davila to testify against the two agents in exchange for immunity from prosecution for the marijuana-smuggling offense.   more…

So, they “struck a deal” to get a drug trafficker to testify against Compean and Ramos, who were trying to do their job? 

What a slap in the face!  Being prosecuted by the very government that hired you to do the job for which you are being prosecuted.

And, strangely enough, the agreement has been placed under seal.  Hmmmm?  Does something sound fishy here?

How’s about clicking on over to the National Border Patrol Council’s site and making a donation to the legal defense fund for the agents, Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. 

You can donate by check, PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover

Make sure to designate that your donation is for Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean or it may be placed in the general fund and go towards other efforts.

In the interim, why not call or write the president and let him know that you think these guys should be pardoned and given a medal for actually doing their job protecting our borders, unlike the president and the rest of our government.

And, why not take a moment to contact the White House:

  • By phone at the switchboard at (202) 456-1414 or (202) 456-6213 for the TTY/TDD line. 
  • By mail at – The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington, D.C. 20500
  • By e-mail at comments@whitehouse.gov

What have you got to lose but just a few minutes of your time, when Compean and Ramos are being wrongly accused and prosecuted.
