    Hedgecock thanks ALIPAC and many others: Ramos & Compean

    I just received this email alert from Roger Hedgecock and his assistant Jimmy. It was very kind of them to thank ALIPAC and many others by name in their alert.

    DEHESA VALLEY GAZETTE

    SPECIAL EDITION

    RAMOS AND COMPEAN FREED!!

    On his last full day in office President George W. Bush has commuted the
    sentences of Nacho Ramos and Jose Compean.
    *

    **http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/01/19/bush.commute/index.html*<http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/01/19/bush.commute/index.html>

    The news spreads like wildfire across this great nation and we are grateful
    beyond measure to the 43rd President of the United States of America.

    We may bemoan that the President waited so long to right this wrong but we
    celebrate the freedom, soon to come, of our brave and heroic Border Patrol
    Agents. We are thankful for their equally heroic families who stood beside
    their husbands and fathers. They too were imprisoned.

    Monica Ramos lives in El Paso but seldom missed a trek to Phoenix to visit
    with Nacho on Fridays. He is imprisoned in a solitary cell. Nacho's
    father-in-law Joe Loya has devoted much of the past few years to the
    campaign to free his daughters husband. He has been a father to Nacho's
    children in his absence.

    If you are getting this issue of the Gazette, you too likely played a role
    in convincing President George W. Bush to commute the sentences. You likely
    helped us support the families with financial assistance and unwavering
    love.

    Talk Radio America also deserves credit from Roger Hedgecock to Lars Larson,
    Phil Valentine, Dan Rivers, Mark Williams, John & Ken, Dominick Brascia,
    Melanie Morgan, Michael Smerconish, Dom Giordano, Terry Anderson, Helen
    Glover, Martha Zoller, Steve Gill, Victoria Taft, Les Kinsolving, Dan
    Gaffney, Lynn Wooley, Gary Sutton, Howie Carr, Ed Hendee and more. Local
    radio kept the story of injustice alive, never relenting in the demand to
    free two men who were imprisoned for doing their sworn duty in a border
    combat zone.

    We gathered several times in Washington, D.C. to make the case for justice
    for Ramos and Compean and broadcast live at Hold Their Feet To The Fire
    events. We were championed by a host of lawmakers from Duncan Hunter, Brian
    Bilbray, Dana Rohrbacher, Tom Tancredo, Dan Burton (yea it's been that long
    a fight), Sue Myrick, Virgil Goode, John Campbell, Steve King, and others.

    Special plaudits due to a variety of organizations that worked tirelessly
    for freedom…The Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR), a number
    of Minutemen groups, 911 Families for a Secure America, Numbers USA, Light
    Up The Border, AliPac, Grassfire.org, The National Border Patrol Union,
    Friends of the Border Patrol and more.

    And a special plaudit to Steve Sarviel who helped organize our Feet trips
    and produced a special web site to help us gather as a community in support
    of Ramos and Compean. And at risk of not mentioning a thousand other folks
    let me thank Dennis and Diane Snyder of Escondido Charter High School. None
    of our Hold Their Feet To The Fire trips would have been successful without
    their labors and commitment to the nation they love.

    As important (likely moreso) our deep endearing thanks to millions of
    Americas who stood up in defense of Ramos and Compean with their letters,
    emails, calls, faxes and letters to lawmakers, the President and to the
    families. And your dollars helped keep the two families solvent as their
    homes were threatened and financial collapse lurked.

    On September 8th, 2007 Roger's radio audience and others from around the
    Southwest (including the dreaded biker gang The Stragglers) traveled to
    Phoenix to support the Nacho Ramos family. We brought checks valued at more
    than 35-thousand dollars to save the Ramos home in El Paso.

    I hope The Stragglers will be on hand in March when Nacho Ramos is reunited
    with his family. We'll have to figure a way to do the same to welcome Jose
    Compean home as well.

    MEANWHILE…THIS IS SOMETHING YOU MUST DO AS SOON AS YOU HAVE READ THIS…YOU
    MUST THANK PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH.. YOUR POLITICAL AFFILIATION DOES NOT
    MATTER, YOUR OVERALL VIEW OF THIS ADMINISTRATION DOES NOT MATTER - WHAT
    MATTERS IS THAT HE DID THE RIGHT THING. HE HEARD YOUR APPEALS AND AT THE 11
    TH HOUR HE ACTED WITH COMPASSION.

    AND YOU MUST ALSO BE PROUD OF YOUR EFFORTS. WE HAD NO HIGH POWERED FINANCIAL
    LOBBY, NO BIG CONTRIBUTIONS TO POLITICS TO MAKE…WE HAD ONLY OUR VOICES AND
    OUR PERSISTENT DETERMINATION TO RIGHT A TERRIBLE WRONG. WE LIVE IN A NATION
    WHERE WE CAN BE THE DIFFERENCE PEACEFULLY AND WITHIN PROCESS.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA

    All of us ALIPACers know how important this was to our Border Patrol and America. Under William's leadership and that of our vigilant crew and membership we responded and worked a long time. It is a victory for all your extraordinary cooperative efforts, William, and I'm glad our organization was included in thankful recognition.

    They are convicted felons. Where can they work? He screwed them by not giving them a pardon.

    That is indeed the worst of it. I just hope they don't become targets of crazies. Welcome to ALIPAC montanalady.

    Ramos and Compeon have become somewhat of a celebrity. I seriously doubt they'll have a difficult time finding employment. Considering everything, I'll bet they're extremely grateful to be getting out.

    Talk Radio America also deserves credit from Roger Hedgecock to Lars Larson

    Interesting, Lars was one of radio talk show who said they should serve the jail time. I traded email back and forth with him a few times on this and listened to his national radio show and he said it

    Commuting the Sentences of Ramos and Compean

    Does anyone realize these men will never be true citizens again? They cannot carry any type of gun and they will not be able to vote.
    These men will be convicted felons for the rest of their lives.

    Now we must work to get this part of their lives reversed.

    I am a former precinct committee person and poll worker.

    Welcome to ALIPAC Sharupa!
    It's terrible for them to be so stripped and humiliated when they had careers in federal law enforcement. They were genuinely trying to do their job to protect our border and catch a criminal. Catching criminals in this country can blow up in your face, ask any law enforcement officer. Many lose their jobs but few lose as much as Ramos and Compean.
