President Bush suggested Thursday that he was leaning against a pardon for two border guards convicted last year in the shooting of an unarmed drug smuggler. The case has become a cause celebre among conservative talk radio hosts who have denounced the verdict. Bush noted that the prosecutor in the Texas case was "a dear friend" and said, "He is a fair guy. He is an even-handed guy. I know this is an emotional issue, but people need to look at the facts.

Former Texas Atty. Gen. Dan Morales was indicted on federal fraud charges Thursday accusing him of trying to steer hundreds of millions of dollars in attorney fees from the state's settlement with tobacco companies to a friend. Morales, a Democrat who ran for governor last year, was also charged with trying to illegally use campaign contributions for personal use. "This is a case of an elected official charged with abusing the public trust," U.S. Atty. Johnny Sutton said.

Dozens of people have been executed in Texas during the tenure of Gov. George W. Bush after flawed trials, the Chicago Tribune said today. The newspaper said it had studied all 131 executions carried out during the Bush administration and found that in many, "justice has been shaped by witnesses, experts and lawyers of questionable merit." The newspaper's investigation, based on trial transcripts, legal briefs and other records, comes six months after Illinois Gov.

Federal officials have moved everyone out of a Texas shelter for children caught crossing the U.S. border on their own amid allegations that youngsters were being sexually abused. The decision to transfer 72 children from the Texas Sheltered Care facility this week came after an investigation launched last month by the FBI and local authorities into allegations that the staff had abused numerous children.

Conservatives expressed bitter disappointment Friday that President Bush did not use the Thanksgiving holiday to pardon two U.S. border agents who have been imprisoned for a year for shooting and injuring a man now accused of drug smuggling. "We had hoped that President Bush, who was compassionate enough to pardon two turkeys in the Rose Garden, might also have had enough compassion to pardon two law enforcement officers who spent their lives defending us at the border," said Rep.

Two U.S. Border Patrol agents were watching the Mexican boundary last year when they stopped a van carrying 743 pounds of marijuana. The driver fled back across the Rio Grande -- with a gunshot wound in his buttocks. Federal prosecutors convinced a jury in March that the agents had shot a defenseless man and schemed to cover it up. Much of the evidence against them came from the drug runner, Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila, who reported the shooting to a friend at the Border Patrol in Arizona.

Under Gov. George W. Bush, the Texas prison system has now surpassed California's to become the nation's largest, a milestone reached in large part through his administration's denial of parole to the vast majority of eligible inmates. This parole crackdown and the accompanying explosion of the prison population are causing a host of problems, but supporters and detractors alike agree that the policies of Bush's handpicked parole board are popular--and smart politics.

In 1995, four months into his first term as governor, George W. Bush signed a bill ending a 125-year ban on concealed handguns in Texas. The new law, he vowed, would make the state "a safer place," and he promised Texans that license applicants would undergo rigorous background checks.
