Bush Commutes Sentences for Two Former Border Patrol Agents
President Bush commutes the sentences of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean, convicted of shooting a Mexican drug runner in 2005.
We need to support our Border Patrol, not undercut them. The convictions of these two Border Patrol agents for shooting a drug runner (who has run drugs since that time, btw) were a travesty of justice.
The drug war within Mexico is out of control. In fact, Mexico and Pakistan are considered the two States with the highest likelihood of collapsing in 2009.
U.S. military report warns 'sudden collapse' of Mexico is possible
We need to be addressing more of our resources to keeping the Mexican drug war away from our borders. We can't afford a collapsed State next door.
