After the television show, "America's Most Wanted," flashes Ignacio Ramos' picture on their program last Saturday, he was attacked by illegal immigrants as they cried out in Spanish, "Kill the Border Patrol agent!"
Mr. Ramos is one of two Border Patrol Agents who shot a fleeing drug runner/illegal alien in the rear, and were convicted for improper handling of the situation.
Why was Ramos in the general population at the prison in the first place?
He was attacked last Saturday night after he fell aleep. The assault included repeated blows and kicks to the back, shoulders, arms and head. To date, he has not received medical attention for the injuries, but has been placed in Isolation in order to protect him from any further assaults.
Did the Warden not see this coming? Why wasn't he separated from the other inmates, especially illegals, from the beginning?
If our prison systems can't protect federal agents, how out of control have they become in other arenas?
And why hasn't President Bush pardoned these Border Patrol agents for doing their job?
By jailing these two men, and now not taking appropriate action to protect them in the prisons (as well as not making sure Ramos receives the medical attention needed) sends out the message to illegals that they have the upper hand. How can we control our borders if we are not willing to take care of the things associated with it?
