According to the Washington Times, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (D-California) and Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-California) are pushing harder for President Bush to pardon or commute the sentences of former Border agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean (see our Pardon Watch List). Says, Rohrabacker, "This marks a year of shame for President Bush, who has been fully aware of the details of this blatant miscarriage of justice and chosen to do absolutely nothing about it. The president has shown us his arrogant and heartless side by permitting the wrongful incarceration of Ramos and Compean to continue." Hunter claims, the American people have "repeatedly expressed their outrage that such an injustice has been allowed to occur." See complete story here.
