OBAMA ADMINISTRATION JAILED A BORDER PATROL AGENT WRONGFULLY

ANOTHER U.S. Border Agent has been UNJUSTLY IMPRISONED -- Tell Congress to DEMAND a Full Pardon

ALERT: Remember the Border Patrol agents, Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, who were prosecuted during the Bush years JUST FOR DOING THEIR JOBS, after pressure from the Mexican government? 

After a big drug smuggler pointed his weapon at them while fleeing and they fired in return, the Mexican government demanded that the Bush administration prosecute the officers for "violating his civil rights". The U.S. caved, and Ramos and Compean received lengthy prison sentences JUST FOR DOING THEIR JOBS

With less than 24 hours left in his presidency, George W. Bush at last granted clemency to the two former Border Patrol agents... but not before they had suffered solitary confinement and beatings by illegals in prison



NOW IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN -- and this time, Border Patrol agent Jesus Diaz was falsely accused, arrested, prosecuted by the same office that prosecuted Ramos and Compean, thrown in prison, had his family fined, and is currently in federal prison serving a two-year criminal sentence in solitary confinement. 

THIS IS AN OUTRAGEOUS INJUSTICE -- and YOU AND I need to FORCE the U.S. government to RIGHT THIS WRONG NOW! 
DEMAND THAT CONGRESS INVESTIGATE THE
DIAZ CASE AND DEMAND A FULL PARDON FOR
FALSELY ACCUSED BORDER PATROL AGENT:
SEND YOUR MESSAGE NOW!

Here's what's happened, as described by Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and a dozen of his colleagues in a letter to Barack Obama, demanding his pardon: 
"In the early morning hours of October 16, 2008, in Eagle Pass, Texas, Agent Diaz assisted in apprehending a 15-year old drug smuggler from Mexico who was carrying 75 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. Agent Diaz lifted the smuggler by the handcuffs and, according to the Department of Justice, violated the smuggler's constitutional right against unreasonable force. Despite claims of abuse by the smuggler, who was given full immunity in exchange for his testimony, photographic evidence and testimonies from other Agents at the scene have testi?ed that no such violence took place."

WHAT FOLLOWED WAS A COMPLETE MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE. 

Just take a look these FACTS regarding the U.S. Justice Department's case against Agent Diaz: 
  • Agent Diaz was cleared of all wrongdoing in this matter by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Office of the Inspector General and the U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement's Office of Professional Wrongdoing. It was ONLY a contradictory report from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection that provided the basis for the U.S. Attorney's Office's case;
  • The prosecution of Agent Diaz was initiated at the request of theMexican government;
  • Despite being described by the U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement's Office of Professional Wrongdoing as a witness whose "credibility is questionable at best," the smuggler in question was given full immunity and a visa to testify against Agent Diaz;
  • Testimony from the suspected group of smugglers, including the one in question, changed considerably from what was initially given the night of the arrest to what was attested to in court; and
  • The U.S. Attorney's office in the Western District of Texas, responsible for prosecuting this case, was the same office, under U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, that aggressively prosecuted the cases against Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. Both of these agents were given 10-year prison sentences that were later commuted by President George W. Bush -- after two years.

Ultimately, this kind of prosecution (in reality, persecution) of Border Patrol agents, including the case against Agent Diaz, sets a dangerous precedent for handling these issues in the future and could force agents to hesitate in the line of duty -- posing a risk to their own lives and the lives of others. Border Patrol agents MUST be able to appropriately and effectively protect our nation's border WITHOUT the threat of federal prosecution hanging over their head. We certainly do not condone the use of excessive or unreasonable force; however, the facts in this case do NOT indicate that the drug smuggler was harmed during the arrest, OR that excessive force was used. 

What the facts DO show is this: 

AGENT DIAZ HAS SUFFERED AN EXTREME MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE - and YOU AND I MUST FORCE THE U.S. GOVERNMENT TO FIX THIS NOW! 
DEMAND THAT CONGRESS INVESTIGATE THE
DIAZ CASE AND DEMAND A FULL PARDON FOR
FALSELY ACCUSED BORDER PATROL AGENT:
SEND YOUR MESSAGE NOW!

As described at the website FreeAgentDiaz.com (which was set up by the Law Enforcement Officers Advocates Council), "Jesus Enrique Diaz, Jr., a Border Patrol Agent, was maliciously prosecuted at the request of the Mexican Consul in Eagle Pass, Texas. After a thorough independent review, we concluded that this case was pushed in order to hand the Mexican Government a Border Patrol agent's scalp. It was solely motivated by politics and is yet another example of prosecutorial abuse and misconduct while protecting Mexico's narco-terror influences. The sole issue here is Agent Diaz was accused of pulling on the handcuffs of a doper while allegedly questioning him about a dope load. The U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Texas who prosecuted this case for the Department of In-Justice painted the doper as a poor victim selling drugs to make money for his family." 

Agent Diaz has served for over nine years in the Border Patrol. His wife Diana has been a Border Patrol agent for 15 years and currently is a Field Operations Supervisor. They have 4 children together, including an infant born in March 2011. Mr. Diaz also has 2 children from his previous marriage. Numerous family members also serve in law enforcement in Texas and New Mexico. 

IT'S UP TO US TO FORCE CONGRESS TO DO THE RIGHT THING FOR AGENT DIAZ. He should NOT have to serve ONE MORE DAY in prison for just doing his job -- please, take action NOW

Sincerely,

William Greene, President

P.S. To add insult to injury, the U.S. government is now imposing FINES of nearly $7,000 on the WIFE of the wrongfully-imprisoned Border Patrol agent! The Washington Times is reporting, "After successfully winning a two-year prison sentence against U.S. Border Patrol Agent Jesus E. Diaz Jr., the Justice Department is now trying to collect a $6,870 fine from his wife, saying it should be paid "immediately" -- even though the judge signaled she would have a grace period." The man is in PRISON, and the government is now going after his WIFE! 

On top of all of that, the government is now trying to COVER UP their misdeeds against Agent Diaz. WorldNet Dailyhas learned that the Obama regime is moving to impose a gag order in the Diaz case, in direct response to thepublication by WND of an April 2009 Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Office of Professional Responsibility report -- which documented that the government initially had declined prosecution

PLEASE, take action RIGHT AWAY to DEMAND that Congress ensure a full Congressional investigation into the gross miscarriage of justice against U.S. Border Patrol Agent Jose Diaz, and DEMAND that Agent Diaz receive a FULL PARDON and restitution IMMEDIATELY -- Thank you! 

DEMAND THAT CONGRESS INVESTIGATE THE
DIAZ CASE AND DEMAND A FULL PARDON FOR
FALSELY ACCUSED BORDER PATROL AGENT:
