Bush Protects Drug Smuggler

The Washington Post headline declares "Study Finds Immigrants Don't Hurt U.S. Jobs." It seems... "The Pew Hispanic Center has analyzed immigration state by state using U.S. Census data, evaluating it against unemployment levels. No clear correlation between the two could be found."

Not every researcher agrees. Andrew Sum, director of the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University points out in the past five years, a subset of the workforce -- native-born men age 16 to 24 with high-school diplomas -- have in fact been displaced by immigrants. The Pew study does not address gender, educational component or age. And, makes no distinction between legal and illegal alien immigrants.

The real impact of illegal aliens on our economy and culture may be better demonstrated by real events, not dry, open-to-interpretation, statistics. I wish every Cheney-loving, Bush-supporting hawk accusing the Democrats of being weak on terror could read this, "Convicted border agent tells his story," as reported by Sara Carter.

In El Paso, Texas, two U.S. border agents are each facing 20 years in federal prison for pursuing, and firing at, a known drug trafficker who was fleeing apprehension, and in fact escaped. In other words, doing their job to keep you and yours safe.

U.S. Assistant Attorney, Debra Kanof, under the direction of Bush's Justice Department and Attorney General Gonzales, went after the agents, Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean, with a vengeance.

"The smuggler was given full immunity to testify against the agents...."

Read the full story, and then decide if the Bush administration is tough on lawbreakers, or just law enforcers. You can bet this drug-running thug, and countless others like him, weren't captured statistically by the rosy Pew report.

The Bush administration isn't tough on terrorism.... our borders are a government-protected gateway to the U.S. for criminals and worse.

Please, write or call your Congressional representatives to protest the travesty of these convictions. It's the least we can do for our brave border agents.
