Ramos & Compean Convictions Upheld By Fifth Circuit

This is very disappointing news today. It seems that the Fifth District Court of Appeals has upheld the convictions of Border Patrol Agents Ramos & Compean. This goes to show that you never know how a court will rule. I was on record that I thought the oral arguments went very well back in December and that a reversal was near certain. Boy was I wrong. Here's the decision

On a releated note, on Saturday the CRA had a chance to get together for a BBQ and Congressman Rohrabacher gave a stirring speech about what has been happening in DC. He cracked back big time on John McCain, calling him "a political whore". He said he will not endorse the GOP nominee unless he promises to give Ramos & Compean clemency.

    Three cheers for Rep. Rohrbacher. Where is John Campbell on this issue? His website has been silent on Ramos and Compean all the way through. His Immigration Reform page is old and musty. I'm thinking about voting for Steve Young this time unless Campbell turns things around.

    Rep Rohrbacher is a congressman. If he thinks the law is wrong, he should be trying to change the law.
