The Bushies Can't Tell The Good Guys From The Bad Guys

One is an illegal immigrant who came into the US with a van full of pot.

The other is a career Border Patrol officer who was recently named "Officer Of The Year" by his peers, and he shot the illegal immigrant in the buttocks as he fled the US leaving his stash behind.

Now, care to guess, here in the George W. Bush open-borders/amnesty universe which of these two men is facing 20 years in prison, and which one is looking at a $5 million payday?

You got it. The Border Patrol officer has been prosecuted by the Bush Administration and convicted of pursuing a fleeing illegal--which is forbidden by current policy. Firing his weapon and hitting the criminal while violating this policy makes it assault, and using a gun means a mandatory sentence. Which means this officer may not see his wife or three young sons outside a prison for 20 years.

Believe it or not, the story is worse. The illegal immigrant drug dealer was coaxed back into the US with a promise of free medical care and amnesty (!) in order for the Bush administration to be able to prosecute the Border Patrol. Now the crook is suing for $5 million because his "rights" as a drug-dealing illegal were violated.

It's a story you won't believe. The reporter who broke the story, Sara Carter, will be our guest today on the Michael Graham show at 3:15pm.
