Enough people peacefully banded together signing petitions, contacting congress can and ARE making a difference.

 

Sentencing Postponed for Border Agents

 
From the Desk of:
Steve Elliott, President

8/23/06


We've just gotten confirmation from Ignacio Ramos's
attorney Stephen Peters, that sentencing for the two
U.S. Border Patrol officers has been postponed until
September 18.

This is great news, because it allows us to continue
ratcheting up the grassroots pressure, and it is working!

Tonight, Grassfire's own Ron De Jong, will appear as a
radio guest on 610 WTVN in Columbus, Ohio to discuss
the case and the overwhelming grassroots response with
host Dirk Thompson.

++ 100,000 petitions arrive in El Paso!

 thanks to so many who have worked so diligently
to rally support for agents Ramos, and Compean, Grassfire
sent more than 100,000 petitions and personal comments to attorney
Stephen Peter’s office as a strong show of grassroots support.

"I was just looking over the comments," said Peters, when
Grassfire called his office on Wednesday. "I will make them
available to my client so that he can see the support he
has from the American public."

Peters urged Grassfire to continue rallying support for
the agents over the next few weeks leading up to the new
sentencing date on September 18, saying all the attention
is very good. "Absolutely, keep them coming. I hope you
send me 100,000 more!" he said.

But that's not all.

Grassfire has already sent more than 100,000 petitions to
the White House, and our successful Faxfire delivered
thousands of faxes sent to key leaders in Congress and
the Department of Homeland Defense which no doubt rattled
some cages, as
key leaders in Congress are now calling for an investigation of the case!

++Action Item #1--Alert Your Friends

, grassroots Americans are making a compelling
impact on this issue, but we must remain vigilant in the
days leading to the sentencing. That is why we are urging
ALL who have signed our petition to forward this message
to your friends, urging them to take action with you by
signing our petition by clicking here:

Since sending 100,000 petitions to Mr. Peters office on
Tuesday, more than 13,000 citizens have signed the petition!

This kind of response is due in part to friends like Frank M.,
a retired New Jersey police officer, who called our offices
to tell us that he has made this case his personal mission
to see these men pardoned. Frank is rallying support by
appealing to local police lodges--urging them to post a
link to our petition on their web pages!

Others, like Lillian B., have used the power of the Internet
to rally more than 250 signers!

This is Grassfire at its finest, and we are so proud of the
way our team has responded in support of these two border agents!
