Another border agent railroaded by government?

Glenn interviewed the wife of now convicted border agent Jesus Diaz about the case that seems to bear resemblance to the Compean & Ramos ordeal. What'd Diaz do? He 'roughed up' a suspected drug runner who was caught with other illegals bringing 150 pounds of marijuana across the border from Mexico into the US. He claims his innocence and the suspect has no visible marks from the so-called 'rough handcuffing'. Even if he did - who cares?

"As The Blaze reported yesterday, our border patrols are in trouble again.  Jesus Diaz was sentenced to two years in prison for allegedly roughing up a suspect drug runner who was caught with other illegals bringing 150 pounds of marijuana across the border from Mexico into the U.S.  Joe Pags has spoken in great detail on this and spoken with his wife about the sentence.  Diaz contends that he did nothing wrong.  We wanted to get his wife Diana on the phone with us now and find out the whole story from her," Glenn explained.

"Diana, I'm sorry for what this government is doing to you and your family and your husband.  It's been done before, and I fear it will be done again.  Tell me your husband's story."

"My husband's story is unfortunately very common to Ramos and Compean, to Gary Brugman, Gilmer Hernandez.  It was your typical, I guess border patrol agent working the field, comes up on a group of undocumented aliens carrying narcotics.  To make a long story short, my husband comes on the scene, the illegal is on the ground on his stomach handcuffed behind his back.  He goes to pick him up.  He picks him up, he feels that the alien tensed up like he's going to run.  He lifts the cuffs and puts him back down on his stomach.  And from there it kind of just went downhill.  The agents that were in the area were all trainees.  So some of them felt that my husband was too rough with the illegal and that's pretty much it.  There was no ‑‑ he didn't hit him, he didn't kick him, he never went to the hospital, the guy didn't have any cuts or bruises.  He had nothing on him.  It was just the fact that he picked up the handcuffs to push him forward to put him back down on the ground," she explained.

"(The smuggler) had pain in his shoulders because he had strap marks where he was carrying marijuana, and you're talking, I mean, he weighed maybe about 100 pounds.  So he was carrying 60 to 65 pounds and you're that small, yeah, it's going to hurt," she added.

She added that the complaint escalated when the Mexican government insisted the border agent be prosecuted.

Meanwhile, the smuggler was released that night for being a juvenile and was released with the Mexican consulate. The smuggler was also granted full immunity to come back to the United States and testify against Diaz.

"The Internal Affairs and the Mexican consulate together found the illegal alien and they offered him immunity on everything.  The illegal entry, the drugs.  He was never charged with anything.  So if today he applies for a visa, if he's not here already, then he can get one, with no criminal record.  Yet my husband, when he gets out, he can't even get a job," Diaz explained.

The family and the agent are also getting no support from the local government or Texas governor Rick Perry.

"Mr. Rick Perry is doing nothing.  I wrote to Mr. Rick Perry earlier before even the bond hearing and I got a ‑‑ I wasn't even good enough to get a letter in the mail.  I got a PDF.  And he said that it was a federal issue and as a governor he couldn't do anything.  That's all I got from Mr. Perry," she added.

"I think it's just politics.  My husband is a scapegoat.  For some reason they felt that, you know, they could give one to Mexico, I guess, give a scout for unknown reasons," she said.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."
