The American people and Congress are on top of this issue. We the People demand that you immediately pardon Jose Alonso Compean and Ignacio Ramos, the two Border Patrol Agents sentanced for shooting an habitual drug smuggler who was in the US illegally. If you do not pardon these agents, they will likely suffer serious bodily harm or death.

 

If you fail to pardon them, your historical legacy will be mud, and millions of Americans will begin an immense political backlash, totally peacefully and legally.

 

We beg you to pardon them before they are harmed.
