ABSTRACT
The article relates the story of two U.S. Boarder Patrol agents who are being praised by the nativist movement for shooting an unarmed Mexico-U.S. border-crosser who was allegedly trying to surrender. Agents Ignacio Ramos and José Alonso Compean were sentenced by a U.S. federal court in Texas in 2007 to terms of up to 12 years in prison. The two are being hailed as heroes by individuals and groups who are known for their anti-immigrants sentiments including news anchor Lou Dobbs, U.S. Representative Tom Tancredo and the American Freedom Riders.
