"Free Ramos and Compean"
Friends of American Freedom Riders and Supporters of Nacho Ramos and Jose Compean,
You are invited to actively participate in our "Free Ramos and Compean" campaign.
We are all determined to continue the fight to free Nacho Ramos and Jose Compean and the American Freedom Riders feel strongly that our noise level should remain high and constant. It is important that we convince the Justice Department and George Bush that the opposition to the imprisonment of these agents will continue to increase in volume rather than subside
The implications of this fight go far beyond the treatment of agents Ramos and Compean. At stake here is the ability of all border Patrol agents to effectively enforce our immigration laws without fear of prosecution. Having talked to a lot of agents, it is clear that they have been forced into a passive mode of conduct.
While various individual events are currently in planning in different areas and will be very productive, we want to make a statement every single weekend around the entire country. Our recent 22 city protest was highly visible and it only makes sense to follow up on that effort and expand it. Considering the short preparation time and the unbearably cold weather in some parts of the country, the January 13 nationwide protest was a truly inspirational display of patriotism. Let's build on it.
Our protest participants will be divided into four groups, one group for each weekend of the month. Each weekend, the cities in the scheduled group will hold a public protest on behalf of the agents. We believe that more cities will join us as our effort becomes known and that we will soon be a force which is difficult to ignore - a constant noise which will bring increased awareness to the general public. As our force grows, so too will our influence.
