Border Patrol Agent Acquitted After Second Trial

Ramos and Compean are not the only Border Patrol agents to suffer malicious prosecutions for doing their jobs. Former agent David Sipes was convicted and fired for using "excessive force" in 2001 following trial. In 2000, responding to a sensor alarm at the border, Sipes apotted 12 -15 illegal aliens. When he ordered the group to halt, Jose Guevara, Nehemias Diaz and Evarado Sanchez fled into heavy reeds. Sipes said he was defending himself when he struck Guevara with his flashlight. Guevara needed five stitches for a cut on his head.

The federal Appeals Court ordered a retrial. "The government stated in writing the aliens were allowed to remain and work in the United States pending trial and specified that 'no other promises or advantages' had been given. That was not true."

What did the illegal aliens actually get? Social Security cards, witness fees, permits allowing travel to and from Mexico, living expenses and free use of government phones -- and a "get out of jail free card." The appeals court also found that the government failed to disclose that after Mr. Sipe's arrest and before the trial, Mr. Guevara was caught by Border Patrol agents with illegal aliens. The arresting agents released him when he displayed a card given to him by prosecutors. "Since Guevara had been granted free passage in his deal with the government, his arrest with illegal aliens was evidence that he was a transporter, as well as evidence of the extent of the government's support accorded him in order to obtain his testimony," the court said. "As the defense termed it, Guevara was given a 'get out of jail card.' "

Guevara also received $80,000 "compensation" for the cut that got 5 stitches. (5 stitches means the cut was probably less than one inch long, i.e. it likely did not "need" stitches.)

Sipes was acquitted at the new trial. Now he's trying to get his job back. Meanwhile, he's lost six years of seniority, salary - his job, his reputation, his life.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez and his Department of Justice have totally run amuck, prosecuting law enforcement officers for doing their jobs, and rewarding criminals for their crimes. Prosecuting those who defend US citizens and our borders - and themselves from assaults by criminals - reveals that our government has gone completely off the rails. This is becoming the "land of the lawbreaker and home of the weasel."

Violating immigration laws is a crime; immigration-law violators need to be deported and barred from re-entry. And our Border Patrol needs protection from malicious prosecution of bogus claims of "excessive force."

May 1st is the date for the next ILLEGAL Immigrant marches throughout the US. These illegal immigrants will be marching for their rights to social security, healthcare, education, jobs and citizenship and probably toting the Mexican flag while they do it.....

So, for us, May 1st is the date to inundate your Congressman and the White House with emails demanding
they stop sucking up to illegals in an effort to get votes and start representing the U.S. citizen instead.

Mark your calendars for May 1st and use the attached links. Forward this to others so they can be ready too. If each of us sends one email against amnesty that day, they will be flooded with them.

It's an outrage! I'm so disqusted with the President a few republicans and the democrats for supporting that bill. I'm from Louisiana and I truly believe that Davaid Vitter is being attacked now for his anti illegal stance. What happened with his affair YEARS AGO was probably made public as a payback for not siding with the president. Washington is so messed up... The only man I think I can vote for with a good conscience is Tom Tancredo. Everyone else seems so fake on the Republican side, and well all the democrats are socialists so that's even worse.

I don't know. I wish the media would cover Tom Tancredo more. He doesn't put up with all the PC garbage and tells it like it is... No sugar coating involved.

I feel that these fucking wetbacks should all be executed. It disugsts me that they have the nerve to come to our country illegally and then ask for the same treatment as if they were citizens. what we need is a hundred foot tall electeric fence spanning the entire U.S. Mexican border then we need to deport all the fucking spics, niggers and any other fucking immigrant to this country.

Jake...you are one that needs deported as well. I agree that ALL ILLEGALS should be deported and this was almost accomplished once. See Operation wetback. All we need to do is build that fence and prosecute the people who hire them, stop giving social aid and free schooling, they will leave. As for "niggers" you fit the word perfectly as per the dictionary, or can you read? Where do your parents come from?
By the way Aryan means people from the north...not only blonde and blue eyed, many were Asian.

This is a good artical and should make its way to Obomas hands, we need to protect are jobs at all cost, this is the biggest war we need to fight, if we cannot help areselfs we cannot help others.we could invest greatly in boarder patrol and that would be alot of jobs in itself, as well as save millions a year. Godbless the construction workers who built this country with there bare hands and were left with nothing.

i think all illegal immigrants should be sent back where they came from. it shouldnt matter if there kids were born here or not. they dont deserve any kind of government assistance. they get away with not paying taxes. most of them do not speak english. i say we take back america the beautiful and send them all home. our own people cant get help from the government because they are too busy helping people who dont even belong here. i had to wait until i was 25 to go to college because the government said that my family made too much money i finally get here and the campus is over run by immigrants. they dont have a problem getting help from the government honestly i think our government is a joke to tell the truth

Illegal immigration is easy to end without any expense and saving tax payers money in the process. The illegal immigration from the US southern border will only increase as the world economy Staggers. The easiest way to have Mexico shoulder the Illegal Immigration problem is by reducing the money the Mexican governments receives from the US. For every Illegal caught crossing the border from Mexico reduce Us aid to Mexico by 10000 dollars for every Illegal caught already in the US reduce the US funds by 5000 dollars. In a short few months the Mexican Army would be shoulder to shoulder across the border preventing any more financial loss.
