U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher joined other Republican House members Tuesday to decry an appeals court’s decision to uphold the major convictions of two Border Patrol agents who shot and wounded a suspected drug smuggler while on duty. Along with Reps. Ted Poe, Ed Royce and Louie Gohmert, Rohrabacher called for President Bush to pardon agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean from all charges. He decried the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals’ recent decision to mostly uphold their convictions, including gun-related charges.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher has been vociferously criticizing President Bush for not pardoning two border patrol agents convicted of shooting Osvaldo Aldrete Davila, an admitted drug smuggler, in 2005 near the Texas-Mexico border. Bush pardoned 14 people and commuted the sentences of two others Monday, but did not pardon Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos, who are serving sentences of 12 and 11 years in prison, respectively. By allowing the men to serve prison time for firing at Davila, the administration is sending a message to all border patrol agents that they should not use their guns, even when they’re justified in doing so, according to Rohrabacher spokeswoman Tara Setmayer.

Deserved what glory? (?Staffer deserved the glory,? Feb. 26) ?Congratulation on your office?s accomplishment?? What accomplishments? This is just part of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher?s demagoguery when it comes to undocumented Latino immigrants. Orange County has long been acknowledged as one of America?s most conservative and anti-Latino counties. So Rohrabacher is very safe pandering to the prejudices of many of his constituents. I know this may surprise or offend some people in Orange County, but if one thinks racism has been completely obliterated because we have a black president, I have some beachfront property in the Mojave Desert I would like to sell you (for after the ?

A bill sponsored by Reps. William Delahunt (D-Mass.) with co-sponsorship from Dana Rohrabacher and Silvestre Reyes (D-Texas) is the first bipartisan attempt to free Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean since they were served with 11- to 12-year prison sentences for shooting an accused smuggler in the buttocks, Rohrabacher said. “The significance of the resolution is that it is truly a bipartisan effort,” he said. “Up until this point, this has basically been a conservative Republican cause.

This is how Washington often works: A member of Congress makes a big stink about some pet issue to whip up their constituents. This is especially true in the House of Representatives because with two-year terms they?re perpetually running for re-election. Usually, when research is done a staffer is sent to do the grunt work the politician takes credit for. Then, when the TV news cameras show up for the moment of glory, guess who?s elbowing the staff out of the way to flex their muscles?

Last week I wrote about an issue that's brought together both Republicans and Democrats in a rare show of united effort: the fight to free Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean who are both serving more than 10-year prison sentences after being convicted for shooting a fleeing drug dealer at the Mexican border. Huntington Beach's Rep. Dana Rohrabacher has been leading the charge to have the men freed (via a presidential commutation of sentence) and when I spoke to him recently he explained with passion and conviction why he is fighting so hard on behalf of the two agents.

So in this day and age of fierce Republican-Democrat fighting, who is spearheading the issue that just may pull all sides together in a spirited battle of true right and wrong? Huntington Beach's own Rep. Dana Rohrabacher. As you may have read, Rohrabacher has become passionately involved in a battle to free border patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, both serving more than 10-year prison sentences after being convicted for shooting a fleeing drug dealer at the Mexican border.
