President Bush May Pardon Border Agents?

President Bush May Pardon Border Agents?

Families tearfully put hope in clemency during last days

As president, George W. Bush has pardoned or commuted sentences for 32 drug dealers, 12 thieves, seven embezzlers, an arsonist, an armed bank robber and eight Thanksgiving turkeys, among others – but U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean remain in prison this Christmas, praying for their release.

“It’s pretty much salt in the wound,” Ramos’ wife, Monica, told WND. “But we have a lot of hope. My husband has quite a bit of faith, and we pray a lot. We are hoping the outpouring of support that we have here from people all over the nation is going to help us.”

Ramos and Compean are serving 11- and 12-year prison sentences, respectively, for shooting at a fleeing illegal alien drug dealer while he smuggled nearly 750 pounds of marijuana across the border. They were convicted of assault, discharge of a weapon in the commission of a crime of violence, tampering with an official proceeding and deprivation of civil rights. More »

Support These Agents

Please send cards and letters to the two Border Patrol agents sentenced to 11 and 12 years in prison for shooting at an armed, convicted drug smuggler they believed was going to shoot them.

As it stands now, agents Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos lost their final appeal. It is our hope that the men, who languish in solitary confinement cells for 23 hours out of every day, will be pardoned or exonerated on appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Please pray for these men and letters to:

Ignacio Ramos #58079-180
FCI Phoenix
Federal Correctional Institution
37910- N 45th Ave
Phoenix, Az 85086

Jose Compean #58080-180
