Border Patrol Agent Jesus Diaz did not have a great Thanksgiving.

He spent it in solitary confinement as a virtual political prisoner of Barack Obama’s Department of Injustice.

What did he do?

He made what should have been a routine arrest of a Mexican teenage drug smuggler hauling 75 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. The arrest was reviewed by Homeland Security and determined to be righteous and lawful. But then the Mexican government got involved, calling on Obama’s Injustice Department to review it.

At that point, the illegal alien drug perp was given immunity to testify against Diaz. Lo and behold, he claimed he was roughed up by Diaz. Though there were no corroborating witnesses and no marks indicating any kind of brutality, the perp was given a visa to allow him continued access to the U.S., and Diaz was sentenced to two years in prison and a stiff fine.

When this outrage was exposed by WND, the U.S. Injustice Department sought a gag order on the case, so the American people wouldn’t hear any more details about it. Judge Alia Moses granted it. Moses is no doubt sympathetic to drug dealers. His cousin, Alex Moses, was arrested on drug offenses and faced 20 years in prison for the charges. After pleading guilty, he was given five years probation.

Welcome to Obama World – where drug felons walk free and law-enforcement offices rot in solitary.

If you think I’m over-generalizing, keep in mind Obama’s actions Monday, when he issued the first commutation order since moving into the White House.

  • He ordered the release of Eugenia Marie Jennigs next month after serving 10 years on a 22-year sentence for cocaine distribution.

  • He pardoned Lesley Claywood Berry Jr. of Loretto, Ky., sentenced in 1988 to three years in prison for conspiracy to manufacture and distribute marijuana.
  • He pardoned Dennis George Bulin of Wesley Chapel, Fla., sentenced in 1987 to five years of probation and a $20,000 fine for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute in excess of 1,000 pounds of marijuana.
  • He pardoned Ricky Dale Collett of Annville, Ky., sentenced in 2002 to one year of probation for aiding and abetting in the manufacture of 61 marijuana plants.
  • He pardoned Thomas Paul Ledford of Jonesborough, Tenn., sentenced in 1995 to one year of probation for conducting and directing an illegal gambling business.

It seems Obama has a softness in his heart for drug dealers and others – but not so much for federal law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line defending our borders.

Why is that?

And why is Obama’s Justice Department trying to keep the American people in the dark about all details of the Jesus Diaz case?

What are they hiding?

I don’t know about you, but I have trouble sleeping at night living in a country that keeps people like Jesus Diaz in solitary confinement while freeing drug dealers.

My Thanksgiving dinner was just a little less enjoyable as I pondered this injustice and thought about Diaz’s wife – also a Border Patrol agent – alone, facing stiff fines and denied the ability to raise awareness about the plight of her husband.

I hope you will join me right now in fighting back – by signing the petition to Congress to request a full pardon of Agent Diaz, something the Obama administration is unlikely to do. Already, because of our efforts, several members of Congress are demanding a full explanation of the Injustice Department’s mishandling of this case.

Free Jesus Diaz!
