Mr. President, PARDON THE AGENTS NOW!
Washington, Aug 4, 2008 -
After nearly eight long months, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals finally released its decision in the Ramos and Compean case. Unfortunately, the Court upheld the major convictions against the border agents effectively leaving their lengthy, decade long prison terms in place.
I vehemently disagree with the court's ruling and will continue to be an advocate for the agents and their families. I joined over 30 of my collegaues in sending two letters to President Bush asking for immediate commutation of the unjust sentences in light of the court's decision.
The American people have also expressed their outrage over this injustice in the form of signing a citizen's petition. If' you'd like to participate in that effort, click HERE to join over 400,000 Americans in expressing their support for a Presidential pardon for Ramos and Compean.
