US vs. Ramos & Compean Case
Announcement on Attempts to Pardon Ramos & Compean
*Last Updated on May 3, 2017. We oppose any Presidential Pardon by current POTUS Donald J. Trump, and/or any future president. The facts are as follows: due to facts about the case, neither former USBP Agents Ramos or Compean disclosed prior to our accepting and pushing the case, as Friends of the Border Patrol, we understood the case in one way. It was in 2007 well after both reported to federal custody and prison that we learned far more facts then were ever previously disclosed that would've resulted in our completely changing how we presented the case, and we never would have represented either agent or their families.
Answers due to questions we've received regarding Ramos/Compean case & Investigation
*Updated on January 19, 2009: FOBP supported a commutation of sentence for Ramos and Compean by the President, which is well known and established. President George W. Bush commuted their sentences on January 19, 2009, two years and two days after the two former agents surrendered to the U.S. Marshals Service to begin serving their prison sentences. This would not have been possible without the support of people across America.
LEOAC is the best source of information about the case of the U.S. Government vs USBP Agents Ramos & Compean. This case violates several sacred tenets of the Constitution in that the non-existant rights (US vs Verdugo-Urquidez - 1990) of doper, Osvaldo Alderete Davila were more important than enforcement the crimes committed by the doper.

We investigated this case independently, and stand by our statements made on this case, which raise many questions that Congress and the media have failed to ask all involved. In order to reach the conclusions we have, you have to look at it from every point of view, prosecutor, defense, and independent observer.
