"This case has always been about the rule of law" - U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton in response to the case against Agents Ramos and Compean.  Now that we have learned that the prosecution knew Aldrete-Davila lied on stand and intentionally concealed the fact that he was a habitual drug smuggler, how about a new case against Sutton, Kanoff, and Judge Cardone in the name of "the rule of law".  Hey Chief Aguilar, do you still support your friend Johnny Sutton and his political trial on behalf of Mexico against two of your agents? 12-5-07

The Local 1613 membership passed a dues increase and the 2007 Budget at the general membership meeting tonight (December 12, 2006).  The dues increase was discussed during two previous monthly meetings (October and November) before a consensus was reached on the proposed increase.  The new dues amount will be $28.14, but the effective date of the increase will depend on when the Agency processes the increase.   Although the AFGE and NBPC per capita amounts have increased by $4.23 since the last dues increase in 2002, we believe this amount is more than adequate to provide for Local 1613 operations.  Additionally, we added line items in the budget for a new Local 1613 Widows and Orphans Fund, which will replace the existing Local 1613 Death Benefit, and a Local 1613 Legal Defense Fund, which will be used to provide legal defense for those rare occasions when a case falls outside the coverage of PORAC and the Legal Services Plan . 12-12-06

President Bush authorized an alternative plan for locality pay increases in 2007.  Get this, the alternative plan is necessary because of the war on terrorism!  Yes, that's right, the war on terrorism.  Meanwhile, illegal immigrants still run free in the safe-haven known as the United States because President Bush's war on terrorism does not include illegal immigrants residing in the United States illegally.  Dear President Bush: is it not true that  illegal immigrants are the reason for the war on terrorism?  12-04-06
