This is a scary show of how the justice system can be bent to the will of individuals. Is a border patrol agent supposed to feel safe doing his job or should he feel nervous about making arrests? Why is it that God has been torn from the walls of our government buildings but politics has free run with the justice system?
Government fines jailed Border Patrol agent’s family
After successfully winning a two-year prison sentence against U.S. Border Patrol Agent Jesus E. Diaz Jr., the Justice Department is now trying to collect a $6,870 fine from his wife, saying it should be paid “immediately” — even though the judge signaled she would have a grace period.
In a notice sent last week the Justice Department said the fines were imposed by the court that found Agent Diaz guilty and sentenced him to prison for improperly restraining a 15-year-old suspected of drug smuggling.
“We strongly urge you to pay this debt immediate,” said the notice, which was received by Diana Diaz, who is also a Border Patrol agent.
