    Congressman JONES APPLAUDS BUSH COMMUTATION OF BORDER AGENTS

    JONES APPLAUDS BUSH COMMUTATION OF BORDER AGENTS’ SENTENCES

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today President George W. Bush commuted the prison sentences of U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean. The agents entered federal prison on January 17, 2007, to begin serving sentences of 11 and 12 years respectively for shooting and wounding an illegal alien drug smuggler who brought 743 pounds of marijuana across the U.S. border in 2005. Both men are expected to be released from prison in the next two months.

    Congressman Walter Jones (R-NC), who has been an outspoken defender of Agents Ramos and Compean, issued the following statement:

    “Like the millions of Americans who have followed this case over the past several years, I am so relieved to see the unjust imprisonment of these distinguished law enforcement officers finally come to an end. As these men sat in federal prison for two years, my heart has ached for them and their families. I am very grateful that President Bush has heeded the cries of the American people, and many of us in Congress, so these agents may be with their wives and children once again.
