Where is the pardon for former agents Ramos and Compean?
Agent Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean have been in prison for 2 ½ years now for shooting a very bad, serial drug runner in the butt. They didn't even know they had shot the bad guy because he kept running and they thought they were shooting in self-defense...

Rohrabacher Leads Bipartisan Appeal To U.S. Pardon Attorney

On Behalf Of Imprisoned Border Agents

Sends Letter Officially Asking For Commutation Recommendation

Washington, DC-November 20, 2008- Today, Reps Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and William Delahunt (D-MA) sent an official letter to U.S. Pardon Attorney Ronald Rogers, asking for his recommendation to the President for commutation for wrongly imprisoned Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. Several Congressional appeals have been sent directly to the President in the past, however, this is the first attempt to voice support through the official process.

Ramos and Compean have been living in the torture of solitary confinement for almost two years for something they never should have been prosecuted for in the first place, said Rohrabacher. We are pleading with the Pardon Attorney to make a favorable recommendation of commutation to the President so he can finally do the right thing by these men and their families. Mr. President, dont leave Ramos and Compean behind as you leave the White House.

Ramos and Compean are currently serving 11 and 12 years sentences, respectively. The letter focuses on the misapplication of 18 U.S.C 924 (c), discharge of a firearm in commission of a crime of violence, which was stacked on top of lesser charges and carries a mandatory 10 year minimum sentence.

Although the punishment was set by Congress, we believe the application of 18 U.S.C 924 (c) in the case of Ramos and Compean is outside its original legislative intent, states the letter. The legislations chief sponsorspecifically stated during debate in 1968 that §924 (c) was intended to persuade the man who is tempted to commit a federal felony to leave his gun at home. Clearly, law enforcement officers should not leave their guns at home, rather they are required to carry them and permitted to discharge their weapons in the line of duty when warranted.

The letter also points out that U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, whose office prosecuted the agents, has stated his concerns with the harshness of the sentences.

H. Con. Res. 267, a resolution with the same commutation request, has also been introduced with a current list of eighty two bipartisan co-sponsors.

Hello folks!

After speaking with family and friends of Ramos and Compean I would like to ask everyone to purchase an American flag to be flown at the capital in honor of Ramos and Compean. We are asking that you request it be flown on January 17th as this is the date they started their prison sentence. Please send this request to everyone on your list. Since this request takes 4 to 8 weeks to process, the request needs to be made by Nov 21st, let's send a message to the White house. So request January 17th in honor of Ramos and Compean!!! Order one, order two, but let's get hundreds flying!!!! Please also fly your flags at home that day too!!!
Thanks,
Val

U. S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher

Washington, Nov 13 - Washington, DC-November 13, 2008- Today, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher issued the following statement in reaction to U.S. District Court Judge Kathleen Cardone’s decision to leave the sentences of Border Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean unchanged:

“Many patriotic Americans are dismayed by the continued persecution and legal torture of former Border Patrol officers Ramos and Compean. The legal establishment has obviously taken its directives from senior levels of the Bush Administration.

“All decent Americans are now calling on President Bush to show some mercy towards these unjustly convicted men who never should have been prosecuted in the first place.

“This case is an ongoing travesty of justice that needs to be set right and I call on President Bush to do the right thing and commute their sentences
