75 House Members ask President Bush to pardon Compean and Ramos


From Politico Via CBS News
The Politico) A bipartisan congressional effort to persuade President Bush to free two border patrol agents has apparently slipped between the summer cracks. On July 31, 75 members of Congress, led by Democrat Bill Delahunt of Massachusetts and Republican Ted Poe of Texas, sent a letter to Bush asking that he commute the sentences of U.S. Border Patrol agents Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos.

The legal fate of Compean and Ramos has become a driving cause for a large segment of the right; the two were convicted of shooting an allegedly unarmed man they suspected to be an illegal immigrant and have been sentenced to more than ten years each. (The man survived.) Given the weight the issue carries with conservatives, the involvement of Delahunt is notable and could give Democrats cover to support a commutation of the sentences. Only a handful of other Democrats, however, have signed on to the letter.

  1. Rewarding the bad behaviour of illegal immigrants is not my idea of Protecting and monitoring the borders of this great country.
    The Politics are wrong and Bush is swayed by a sentimental affiliation. The reality is coming to the fore about closing the American borders and instituting a working Immigration Service for everyone.
    free those 2 men who were doing their job.
    thanks,
