FPM's 2006 People of the Year

FrontPage Magazine honors Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean as their 2006 People of the Year.

The story of these two Border Agents hasn't been on my radar until now, but it is a compelling one. I would urge you to read it, and if you're interested, join the bi-partisan effort to get them pardoned or have their sentences commuted. It seems to me that even if they violated bureaucratic procedure in some way, they appear to have done it in the good faith execution of their job responsibilities, and don't deserve to be doing 11-12 years in prison for it.
