Here's my latest letter of response from Grassfire.org
Border Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean are just 24 hours
from reporting to federal prison to serve 11 and 12 years for
their attempt to apprehend an illegal alien drug smuggler.
Last week, Ron De Jong and I had the privilege of meeting
Jose Compean and his wife while presenting 225,000 petitions
to members of Congress on Capitol Hill. The Compeans expressed
their heartfelt thanks for everything you have done in signing
this petition, making phone calls, faxes, etc.
Would you take up their cause again today and make yet
another round of phone calls?
Here is a list of calls:
The White House: 202-456-1414
Justice Department: 202-514-2001
New Jersey Sen.

The only official word from the White House came through
Spokesman Tony Snow last week who gave no indication that
the President is considering taking action.
There is so much at stake here, first for these two agents
and their families who have already paid such a high price,
and secondly for our nation.
In the minds of millions of Americans, if these men go to
jail this President will have sided with an illegal
alien drug smuggler instead of the men and
women who are literally standing on the wall
protecting our nation's borders.

and other resources, go here:
By the way, we've added another 25,000 petition signers since our
delivery to Congress just a few days ago! Citizen outrage
continues to build. If you have friends who want to take action,
urge them to sign the petition here:
Thank you for the stand you are taking.
Steve Elliott, President
Dear Felow BC members:
Won't you please consider calling,writing or signing the petittion to FREE these 2 men who are headed for prison for doing their jobs and protecting us...
The Border Patrol Inquisition
Be a Border Patrol agent: Do your job, go to prison. That's how the job must look to agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean.
In February 2005, the agents tried to stop a van driven by drug smuggler Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila near the Mexico border. After a scuffle with Compean, Aldrete-Davila fled on foot. Ramos says he saw a gun -- which the smuggler denies. Both agents fired at Aldrete-Davila, who fell, but continued his escape across the border
