Agents Ramos and Compean have been serving time because our government did not want our Border Patrol Agents to do their jobs. Now they are behind bars based on the testimony of a lying drug smuggler who was arrested again while awaiting the Ramos and Compean trial. I did not immunity applied to crimes you committed AFTER you received immunity for being an illegal alien and a drugs smuggler.
Our Constitution does guarantee us that the federal gov’t will protect us from foreign invasions, but I guess I’m just expecting too much from an incompetent government and an incompetent leader. On with this post…
Now to throw salt into these open wounds, Bush pardons drugs offenders and an embezzler while leaving Ramos and Compean behind in prison! President Bush, are you trying to have NO legacy? It is very spotty at best at this moment.
At The National Center for Public Policy Research there is an article written by David Almasi about this travesty.
“I believe the President’s stolid refusal to pardon Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean is the most unconscionable act of disloyalty he has perpetrated upon those sworn to protect our well-being.

On February 17, 2005, Ramos and Compean pursued Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila on foot after Aldrete-Davila abandoned a van containing 743 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $1 million. During the chase, Ramos shot at Aldrete-Davila in the belief that Aldrete-Davila had drawn a gun of his own. Aldrete-Davila escaped across the U.S.-Mexico border, and Ramos assumed Aldrete-Davila was unhurt. In fact, Aldrete-Davila had been shot in the buttock. [Continue reading.]
We are still here, President Bush, and we are not going away. FREE RAMOS AND COMPEAN!
