Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

CONTROVERSIAL CONVICTIONS OF BORDER PATROL AGENTS UPHELD

Rate this Entry

I have not written nearly as much about this case as others, but the blogosphere will no doubt be abuzz about the upholding of convictions against to Border Patrol agents convicted of assault and other charges relating to the shooting of a drug smuggler. My only comment is that there's a bit of irony here since the loudest voices calling for mercy - okay, amnesty - for the officers are the same who cite the need for law and order in other contexts - namely, dealing with immigration law violators. I'd suggest we consider what is humane, and good, practical policy here and in other contexts and not get lost in the jingoism and sound bytes.



This case, incidentally, has been Lou Dobbs' big cause. I'm sure he'll have some choice words to say tonight and "law and order" won't be three of them.

    Lou Dobbs would be one and Tancredo the other!
