Border Betrayal
Sutton Undermined Last Line of Defense

Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- August 6  

    Kitty Pilgrim (CNN): ...Well, this broadcast and many federal lawmakers are fighting to overturn the miscarriage of judges in the Ramos and Compean case. One of the congressmen leading the battle to clear the names of the two former border patrol agents joins me now, Congressman Brian Bilbray, from San Diego. -- ...Your reaction to the Aldrete Davila's sentence, less than Ramos and Compean?
    Bilbray: You know just disgust, dismay. You know if you talk about the injustice of the justice system. It's an oxymoron. We're talking about men and women that are along the [border], fighting to defend our country, and this sort of reflects a prejudice against those who are serving as opposed to those who are the predators on our society, just crossing the border at will, and then using the abuse of our agents as some way to hide from justice. [...]
    Rohrabacher: Listen, every day, somebody in California gets raped, somebody gets run down by a drunk driver who is an illegal immigrant.
    Every day, we see our kids being short-changed in our schools, where we have our health care denied us because we have to wait in line behind a bunch of illegals who are in the emergency room. And every day, we're suffering here, because for the last 20 years we've had the wrong policy.
    Now we have Johnny Sutton undermining the only -- the last line of defense we had, which our border patrol agents.
