President Bush commuted the prison sentences of former Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean today.
The announcement came on the last full day of Bush's presidency, Fox News reported. The report said the sentences for Ramos and Compean now will expire March 20.
Two years ago, Ramos and Compean began serving sentences of 11- and 12- years respectively for a 2005 incident in which they fired on a drug smuggler as he fled back into Mexico after bringing 750 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. near Fabens, Texas.
All of the petitions, email, faxes, letters and phone calls have paid off. The hard fought battle to free former Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean has been won! President Bush commuted their sentences today
