This is important

I watched Congressman Ted Poe today speaking passionately about freeing Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. Here is the backstory if you aren't aware of it. One part of the story I didn't know was that if they had pled guilty they would only have received one year. But they knew they were not guilty, and they weren't going to plea. Now they are in for 12 years. Complete injustice.

Pres. Bush has the power to free these men who were unjustly incarcerated. We all need to do what we can to ensure that happens.

Go here to send a letter to Pres. Bush.

This is about two men's lives who were only keeping our border safe from a sleaze drug dealer. Sometimes I can hardly believe that this really happened in this country.
