President Trump’s pardons of former Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean is as non-controversial as it gets. The media is spinning this the way it spun it back then, but a decade ago conservatives successfully rallied and got President Bush to commutte the sentences of the two border patrol agents who had been prosecuted for shooting an illegal alien drug dealer. The illegal alien drug dealer, who had been transporting a fortune in drugs claimed he was unarmed.
The agents claimed that they thought he was armed.
While President Bush commutted their sentences, he didn’t pardon them. That meant that Ramos and Compean weren’t stucking serving over a decade in prison, but their record made it difficult for them to find security work. President Trump’s pardon will hopefully help with that.
Like the Raven 23 pardons, it also serves to remind Americans of what he stands for.
Illegal migration hadn’t been discussed much in 2020. That’s understandable, but may have been a mistake. Especially as the illegal alien caravans have come roaring back. The Ramos and Compean pardons are a reminder of the debt we owe to the men and women holding the line against the invasion of our country.
