One last open-borders gesture from the shamnesty White House:

A South Texas rancher got a good-news phone call Tuesday about a presidential pardon that wipes away a felony conviction for hiring undocumented workers to harvest his watermelons 16 years ago.

“I really don’t know why or anything,” said John Allen Aregood, of Riviera, a ranching town about 11 miles south of Kingsville. “It’s just a good Christmas present.”

He was one of 19 people granted pardons Tuesday by President George W. Bush.

The only Texan on the list, Aregood paid a modest fine and served two years of probation after his conviction for aiding and harboring unauthorized immigrants.

Aregood, 64, is no longer is in the watermelon business and said he has never met Bush.

But quite a few people wrote to the Justice Department supporting his pardon application, which a friend inside the agency helped advance, he said.
