Ramos And Compean: One Year Later

Press release from Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Ca)

“It has been a year since Border Agents Ramos and Compean entered prison. This marks a year of shame for President Bush who has been fully aware of the details of this blatant miscarriage of justice and chosen to do absolutely nothing about it. Since day one, family members, a cross section of the American people and Members of Congress have pleaded with President Bush to pardon or commute their sentences to prevent these men from having to endure the horror of federal prison.

For a year, the President has shown us his arrogant and heartless side by permitting the wrongful incarceration of Ramos and Compean to continue. He may have put Ramos and Compean out of his mind, but for the rest of us, the President’s disregard for Ramos and Compean’s injustice represents a definitive and deliberate inaction on his part.

The last year has been an absolute nightmare for these two men who risked their lives defending our borders. Agent Ramos was savagely beaten within days of imprisonment and both men have been condemned to solitary confinement for a year, suffering conditions worse than detainees at Guantanamo Bay.

It is shameful that President Bush refused to show the same level of mercy for Ramos and Compean that he was so easily willing to grant his friend Scooter Libby.”
