SourceCongressman Wants To Pardon Border Agents
SAN DIEGO -- Last-minute pleas are being made in the case of two former Border Patrol agents who are due to report to prison. Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos were convicted in a court in El Paso, Texas, for shooting and wounding a Mexican drug smuggler.
Congressional representatives, including Duncan Hunter and Dana Rohrabacher, have been urging the president to pardon the two. The agents have been sentenced to serve 11 and 12 years in prison, respectively.
According to the Washington Times, the agents found 743 pounds of marijuana in the smuggler's van.
If Bush were to do this he could redeem himself just a tiny bit.
