Since I don’t want to get sued, I didn’t call him a “smuggler” when I just posted on this. All we know is that he was convicted of Conspiracy to harbor and transport illegal aliens:

usdoj.gov/opa/pr/2008/December/08-crm-1148.html

Someone could do a public service if they could look up the details of the case.

Why is this a surprise? Anyone following this president since his days as governor of Texas should expect this, Bushbot claims notwithstanding.

Harboring and transporting? Would that not be part of an effort/operation to smuggle illegal aliens into the U.S.?

Unbelievable. Keeping the border open by smashing USBP morale must be a top priority of the open border lobby.

Not a drug runner.

He was jailed for assisting illegal immigrants find temporary shelter.

Like any good Christian would have done.

“Like any good Christian would have done.”

So, Christians, by your definition, cannot be law abiding citizens? I suppose you are saying Jesus demands a Christian world with no laws otherwise?

Oh my, I can’t believe it! Feedback right NOW should have some impact, hopefully.

I pass through Riviera on the way to my daughters, last town with a gas station before the desolate King Ranch area.

Gezz...

Even if BW pardons Ramos - and he BETTER or it will be one more action he will be depised even more by many of his ex-voters - like me.- But it just goes to show you his "sense" of priorities... his political wisdom /s

Ramos should have been pardoned FIRST, you JACKASS...

Here is another thought. Bush leaves on 20 Jan 09 with Ramos and Compean both still in prison. Think of the publicity if one of the first things Zero did was to pardon the two.

Is this a nice way of saying he was convicted of "Conspiracy to harbor and transport illegal aliens"?

I really hope you're joking here.

Apropos you mention Jesus.

2008 years ago tomorrow night, there wasn't anybody to help his parents...so they slept 'on the street' in a stable.

...could have used a Mr. Aregood back then. ;^)

D'OH!!!! Your animosity toward illegal immgrants South of the border cloud your thinking.

He could have been Mexico's Ted Bundy and it wouldn't have changed a thing.

You are in a conundrum of sorts.

Wage suppression, national dissolution, narcotic complicity.

Did you note that John Carman formerly customscorruption.com was framed and jailed by feds last year.

An inconvenient whistleblower.

I'm not a Ramos & Compean apologist, I just think they were railroaded, and their word should have carried more weight than an illegal alien drug smuggler.

D'OH!!!! Your animosity toward illegal immgrants South of the border cloud your thinking.

You're right, I do have animosity towards anyone coming here illegally, but it's not restricted to those south of the border and it does not cloud my thinking.

He could have been Mexico's Ted Bundy and it wouldn't have changed a thing.

Huh?

You are in a conundrum of sorts.

Maybe in your twisted way of thinking.

Hell no, I'm not joking.

In fact, John Allen Aregood's case is the epitome as to when to wield a Presidential pardon.

Good job, President Bush!

IOW, you're okay with an LEO shooting at a fleeing person who is not endangering his safety and poses no threat?

You're okay with them lying and filing a fake report, destroying evidence?

You're going to absolve them...law enforcement officers...for all that because it was LATER determined the victim was not an altar boy?

“In fact, John Allen Aregood’s case is the epitome as to when to wield a Presidential pardon.”

And using the using the severity of sentencing that W seems to approve, W himself would have gotten a few years for his DWI.

No shortage of folks who think any DWI should carry real jail time.

I hope you're an atheist who is slamming Christians, and not a deluded Christian who thinks assisting criminals to steal from and murder Americans is morally valid, let alone imperative.

Define temporary. Was he giving shelter for a few nights during a storm or some other emergency? If so, that's one thing, but I highly doubt that's what we're talking about.
