PRESS CONFERENCE

Bipartisan Members Continue Fight To Save Imprisoned Border Agents

Announce Letter Of Support To U.S. Pardon Attorney

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 19, 2008
When: Thursday, November 20 , 2008

11:30am

Where: House Radio/TV Gallery

H-321

      U.S. Capitol

What: Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and William Delahunt (D-MA) will be leading a press conference to announce a bipartisan letter to the U.S. Pardon Attorney asking for commutation of sentence for unjustly imprisoned Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. The agents are currently serving 11 and 12 year prison sentences, respectively, for shooting and wounding a self -admitted illegal alien drug smuggler. Both men have already spent almost two years in solitary confinement. Thus far, eighty-two Members of Congress, representing the entire political spectrum, have signed on to H.Con. Res 267 in support of commutation.

Members will discuss the injustices of the case, as well as, the misapplication of 18 U.S.C. 924(c), “the unlawful discharge of a firearm in commission of a crime of violence,” which placed a mandatory minimum 10 year sentence onto the agents’ convictions.

Rep. John Culberson (R-TX)

This morning I again called the White House for the UMPTEENTH time requesting that President Bush DO RIGHT for ONCE and PARDON Ramos and Compean. I don't know HOW many MORE such calls will be needed, but have NO choice BUT to MAKE them until Ramos and Compean are FREE at LAST!
