Rep. Tom McClintock Statement on President's Action to Free Border Patrol Officers
Representative Tom McClintock issued the following statement on President Bush’s decision to free former Border Patrol officers Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean from prison:
“I am very pleased that President Bush acted to rectify one of the great injustices of our time: the imprisonment of former Border Patrol officers Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.
Their imprisonment sent exactly the wrong message: that those on whom we count to defend the integrity of our border can be put behind bars for doing their jobs.”
Representative McClintock rose in the House last week to request pardons for the officers.
