Tancredo Passes Bill to Free Ramos and Compean
Another magnanimous feat by The Tanc:
Presidential candidate Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) last night successfully added an amendment to an annual spending bill that will prevent using funds to enforce the judgment or sentences imposed by a federal judge in the case of U.S. vs. Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. This bill, if adopted by the Senate and signed into law will free the two border agents who have been at the center of national attention for many months.
From the AP (via FOX News):
The agents shot him in the buttocks as he fled, but got rid of crucial evidence and failed to report the incident as required. They later found a load of marijuana in a van that Aldrete had used to try to elude them. But U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton said there was no proof to tie the drugs to Aldrete so he could not prosecute him.
