Congressmen Speak Out on Shameful Conduct of Bush AdministrationCongressman Ted Poe (R-TX), a former prosecutor and judge, has called this one of the most egregious miscarriages of justice he's ever seen. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) said: "I don't remember where there was ever a time when the president of the United States was so out of sync with the national security interests of the American people. And his policies are so wrongheaded that we end up putting the border patrol agents in such a horrible situation that now, what we find is these two border patrol agents who are heroes, putting their lives on the line for us, end up being charged with a crime while the drug dealer goes free." Rohrabacher also said: "The White House now is vilifying these two border patrol agents. The message coming out of the White House now is Ramos and Compean are really terrible human beings. These are heroic individuals." Congressman Brian Bilbray (R-CA) said: "All I say is that Mr. President, if you're going consider Mr. Kennedy's amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens, couldn't you just add two more border patrol agents onto that list?"
