I have felt all along that the two border patrol agents who were sent to prison for doing their job should never have been punished. I believe the prosecutor in the case was to eager to prosecute and get another 'star in his cap'. When people are hired to do a job, they should not be punished for doing just that. Now these men have been separated from their families for two years.
Today, President Bush commuted their sentences! This means their stay in jail will be shortened and Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean will soon be home with their families. Thank you, President Bush, for deciding to commute their sentence and get them back home with their families where they have belonged all along!
