  • Jorge Ramos Uses Wall but Wants Open Borders for the Rest of Us

    America got a first-hand look at how Mr. Trump’s deportation plan would be administered when Univision’s Jorge Ramos unwittingly volunteered to demonstrate the process at an Iowa press conference. After refusing to wait his turn in line to ask questions of the Republican presidential candidate, Mr. Trump “deported” Mr. Ramos from the press conference, then proceeded to bring him back in after he agreed to wait his turn – making Trump’s comprehensive immigration reform plan look quite feasible. For those unfamiliar with Jorge Ramos, he is the debonair host of the Hispanic news show Noticiero Univision. He’s an “anchor baby”...

    Social media users are furious that Jorge Ramos, the illegal immigration activist who masquerades as a journalist, came out against a law named in honor of a woman killed by an illegal alien who’d been deported from the country five times — and returned every time. Speaking to CNN’s Brian Stelter in an interview to air Sunday on “Reliable Sources,” the Univision anchor declared Kate’s Law, which dictates that a deported illegal alien caught sneaking back in the country, would receive a mandatory five-year prison sentence, is unfair.

    On Thursday, former GOP congressional candidate Jorge Bonilla suggested in both English and Spanish that Univision's Jorge Ramos pre-planned and staged his confrontation with Donald Trump for "maximum impact and ratings." The same day, we obtained a piece of audio that would seem to vindicate Bonilla's concern. The audio is part of a Spanish-language program based in Colombia, and in it, an individual appearing to sound like Ramos is heard talking about "hunting" Trump for some time before confronting him in Iowa.

    In his latest showdown, Donald Trump ordered Univision anchor Jorge Ramos out of a news conference Tuesday, telling him to “go back to Univision.” Ramos, who like Trump is known for his confrontational style, didn’t back down until he was escorted out of the room by security. Eventually, Ramos was invited back, where he sparred with Trump over the Republican candidate’s immigration proposals. Trump has had some high-profile tiffs with media figures recently, battling publicly with Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly, and on Tuesday with the network’s chairman, Roger Ailes. But prodding Ramos, who has been called the Spanish-language...

Not worried about communications -- as long as it's got WiFi built in (which I'm sure they all do), I can use my cellphone as a mobile hotspot to transfer/send files. This is intended to be a replacement for a working laptop/notebook. And again -- "budget" is the keyword. Thanks all!.

    Former U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton has been hired to work in a consulting and law firm formed by former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft. Sutton, who resigned Sunday as chief of the San Antonio-based Western District of Texas, is one of four outgoing U.S. attorneys hired by Ashcroft. All served under the administration of former President George W. Bush. “Johnny is joining the Ashcroft law firm, as is John Ratcliffe, former U.S. attorney from Dallas,” said Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Ashcroft’s company. “They will be operating in Texas as Ashcroft Sutton Ratcliffe LLC.” Corallo said Sutton will remain in...

    Outgoing U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton said Monday he still believes he made the right call in prosecuting two then-Border Patrol agents convicted of covering up their shooting of an unarmed drug smuggler in the back. In a wide-ranging interview since announcing last week that he is resigning April 19, Sutton also said he was voluntarily leaving the job he’s had for more than seven years — the top federal prosecutor of the San Antonio-based Western District of Texas. Sutton, who was nominated to the post by President George W. Bush, said he is leaving for a legal job in the...
  • Supreme Court rebuffs Ramos and Compean

    The US Supreme Court will not hear the appeals of US Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. The refusal lets stand the opinion of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals affirming the convictions and the sentences of the agents. Although this effectively ends the agents’ hopes to have their felony convictions overturned, they are now free men thanks to a last minute commutation of their 10-year sentences by President Bush. Had it not been for Bush’s action, the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear the case would likely have meant the agents would have served their full sentences. Nonetheless,...

    Former U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, who were given long jail terms for shooting at a fleeing drug smuggler, today told Fox News Channel host Glenn Beck that they were sustained by prayers of the American people and their spirits were lifted by their letters. The two were interviewed on Beck's program in their first television interview allowed under the terms of their probation after President Bush commuted their sentences on his last day in office. They just were released from ankle bracelet restrictions and still face limits on with whom they can talk. One of...

    Former U.S. Border Patrol agent Ignacio "Nacho" Ramos wakes up in the middle of the night expecting a guard to shine a flashlight in his face. Jose Alonso Compean, his colleague, still has nightmares that he's not really home. It has not been easy readjusting to life outside their one-man prison cells where they spent the last two years of their lives in segregation. Since the commutation of their sentences by President Bush on his last day in office, the former agents, who were charged with the non-fatal shooting of a Mexican national after he abandoned a load of marijuana...
  • VIDEO: American Heroes Ramos and Compean's First Interview After Their Release

    Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean were released last month from federal prison after serving more than two years in solitary confinement for the non-fatal shooting of a Mexican drug smuggler. President Bush commuted the sentences of the two border guards Jan. 19 and his order went into effect yesterday. They had spent the last month in home confinement and are now finally free. Glenn Beck has covered this story for years and was at the forefront of the movement to get President Bush to commute their sentences. These two men are truly American heroes. Welcome back!
