America’s Most Wanted, John Walsh, puts the details of this case in a video.After the video, you’ll find links to the complete history of the case,including trial transcripts.

As we fight against Senate Bill1639, with its promise of $4.4 billion to hire and train border guards,along with other unknown measures, remember that, as with Ramos and Compean, actually “protecting” the border is not what the Bush administration expects.

What can we “expect” from our border guards, and the millions to be “surged” toward new hires? Can we expect them to stop drug smugglers? Can we expect them to be able to protect themselves against criminal aliens?

Do not be distracted by the prosecutors claims that these two men covered-up a crime. If you are not certain about this case, follow the links below and make your own determination. I’ll be adding new links as they become available.

Watch John Walsh from America’s Most Wanted put this case into perspective:

Congress Leads Bush in Race for Illegal Immigrationfrom The Patriot. Excerpt: A UPI/Zogby poll conducted June 20th, among8,300 adults nationwide, reveals that only 3% have a favorable view of how Congress is handling illegal immigration. Naturally this has Bush furious as his favorable rating, in the context of illegal immigration,

is at 9%.

Only doing the jobs Americans won’t do, heh?from Freedom of Philadelphia. Excerpt: For more information on how lawyers like this are helping American companies find ways to not hire American workers check out the Programmers for more info.Here’s an interesting bit of info from the Programmers Guild. While theU.S. lost about 500,000 tech jobs between 2000 and 2003, Congress admitted about 500,000 foreign tech workers on nonimmigrant visas: L-1and H-1B – resulting in the displacement of over one million American workers.

Is This Another Loophole in Senate Bill 1348? “Other than a native of Mexico”from the Virtuous Republic. Excerpt: President Bush on Friday, in an effort to gain support for his amnesty bill, promised to “bar future”illegal immigrants from the United States. He is quoted as saying,”Under this bill, those caught crossing illegally will be permanently barred from returning to the United States on a work or tourist visa.”

President Bush recommends fighting forest fires with 4.4 billion slips of paper from Conservative Comman Man. Excerpt: Does El-Presidente Bush believe that if he orchestrates our loss of sovereignty and facilitates the formation of one North American Union he will be selected to be the emperor? If this is not the case, I cannot imagine his seeming desire to accommodate Mexican citizens at the expense of his own countrymen.
