According to an article posted World Net Daily, an official for the Department Homeland Security admitted that the agency misled Congress when they claimed to have investigative reports that proved Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean confessed guilt and declared they “wanted to shoot some Mexicans” prior to the incident that led to their imprisonment.

The admission came during the testimony of DHS Inspector General Richard L. Skinner before the Homeland Security Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee, according to Michael Green, press secretary for Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas.

Under questioning by Culberson, Skinner admitted DHS did not in fact have investigative reports to back up the claims: “The person who told you that misinformed you,” Skinner reportedly replied.

Meanwhile, Ramos and Compean, who received11 and 12 years respectively, began serving their prison sentences last month for their actions in the shooting a Mexican drug smuggler who was granted full immunity to testify against them. Despite the prosecutions promise to send the convicted Border Patrol agents to a minimum security prison where they wouldn’t have to worry about being killed by other inmates, Ramos was sent to serve his time in a medium security prison in Mississippi, and thrown into general prison.

As if the situation wasn’t already bad enough, apparently this past Saturday night, shortly after the airing of a segment about Ramos and Compean on “America’s Most Wanted”, Ramos was attacked by a group of Mexican prisoners. The inmates that attacked Ramos beat him with their fists, and kicked him with their prison issue steel-toe boots, while shouting “**** la migra.” “Migra” is a slang term criminal aliens use for Border Patrol agent.
