Border Patrol Union Votes No Confidence in Agency ChiefWASHINGTON — The 100 leaders of the nation's 11,000 U.S. Border Patrol's rank-and-file agents on Monday are releasing a no-confidence resolution against Chief David V. Aguilar for his failure to back up two agents now serving time for shooting a drug-smuggling illegal alien.
In a unanimous decision agreed to on Sunday, the top leadership of the National Border Patrol Council lambasted Aguilar for his silence on behalf of Ignacio Ramos, 37, and Jose Alonso Compean, 28. The two are serving 11 and 12 year prison sentences, respectively, as a result of testimony given by a a drug-smuggler who claimed his civil rights were violated when he was shot in the buttocks trying to run across the Mexico border after dropping 743 pounds of marijuana during their pursuit of him.
According to The Washington Times, which first reported the no-confidence vote, NBPC President T.J. Bonner said Aguilar's lack of support for field agents has caused attrition among the ranks, plummeting morale and a growing disconnect between field agents and leadership.
Instead of a witch hunt for Gonzales they should targeting this guy!

I'm glad the border patrol agensts are making a stand against this stupid crap from the leadership and courts.
That whole thing was wrong, those agents should be awarded medals, not jail time.
Bush should have pardoned them instantly.BBA

They had to change their mission statement.
From: To protect and serve
To: To protect and serve time
If our military performed like the White House and Congress, we'd all be speaking a foreign language.
