Skip to comments.Border Patrol Muzzles Agents Over Sweeps Story
Posted on 07/09/2004 4:37:43 PM PDT by John Jorsett
I've just been listening to Shaun Moran, an agent with the Border Patrol talk to Roger Hedgecock on his San Diego show (AM600, streaming audio available at the link). Moran says the Border Patrol has informed him and all agents that, contrary to policy up to now, there will be no more paid media appearances. Moran has been the official spokesman for the union representing Border Agents, and has made many paid appearances to inform the public in that capacity, most recently in regard to the illegal alien sweeps that the Border Patrol has recently made. Moran says he's sure this new policy is retaliation for the heat and embarrassment that's been generated as a result of these sweeps and the consequent banning of same by the DHS after the illegal alien advocacy groups started screaming about it. Moran says the public is entitled to the truth and that his union is going to make sure that they get it, despite this new policy. Moran says that, if necessary, his union will pay for his appearances (or Moran will do as he did today and make them while on vacation, before work, etc.) just to make sure the word gets out. If you'd like to register your objection to the banning of the sweeps and/or the attempts to stifle the dissemination of information regarding same, there's contact information for Asa Hutchingson's (Under Secretary for Border & Transportation Security) office at NBPC1613.org.

That's my line...try to be more original.
Quit being an apologist for all that is wrong with the GOP...
Cut the crap.
...and work to clean house of the many spinless two-faced RINO's that have taken root in the Republican party and refuse to represent the views of the base of the party before it is too late.
The RINOs were put there by voters...."It's the voters, stupid." And the "base" includes liberals, moderates, Conservatives, wingnuts, etc. It looks like the liberal and moderate Republicans might well outnumber the other Republicans and the majority of voter base gets the most attention....in any political party.
You can also can that pitiful excuse to keep voting for RINO's.
Don't assume that I vote for RINOs. For that matter, don't assume anything. If the majority of voters want RINOs, then that's the way it is, so get used to it and stop bitching and moaning about it. That stuff gets old real quick.
The more we put the RINO-R in power the worse the situation gets!
Again: "It's the voters, stupid."
Tsk Tsk, didn't mean for you to get your panties all in a twist. Typical for liberal minded people to resort to name calling.
We've been through all this before and you're still wrong, as in blindspot.
