Grassfire.org has learned that imprisoned Border Patrol agent Ignacio "Nacho" Ramos has been assaulted in prison by as many as 5 other inmates -- news confirmed by three family members.
The assault occurred at 10:00pm Saturday night (2/3), apparentely following the airing of America's Most Wanted. According to Ramos' uncle:
"Nacho was assaulted Saturday night around 2200 by about five illegal immigrants. He has multiple and severe injuries. They put him in Isolation for now, he has not been allowed to see a doctor since Saturday. They were yelling at him in Spanish, Maten a la migra. which means kill the Border Patrol Agent."
Another family member said Nacho was attacked after he fell asleep Saturday night. Assaulters went after him with repeated blows and kicks. Ramos suffered wounds to his back, shoulder, arms and head. There is concern that Agent Ramos was not given medical treatment after the incident and may not have received medical attention for up to 48 hours. An investigation is expected to be launched Tuesday.
This is precisely the concern Mrs. Monica Ramos expressed in her FireSociety blog entry.
"Ignatio Ramos has been wrongly convicted and now put in harm's way in a prison known to harbor illegal alien drug runners," said Grassfire.org President Steve Elliott. "This is beyond an outrage. Our president must take action immediately to pardon these agents."
