Plight of Agents Ramos and Compean featured on “America’s Most Wanted”

On February 3 the plight of former Border Patrol agents Jose compean and Ignacio Ramos was the feature subject on national television’s “America’s Most Wanted.”

Their confrontation with an illegal alien drug smuggler crossing the border with a van loaded with 800 lb. of marijuana was related. TJ Bonner, President of the National Border Patrol Council, described the drug smuggler’s gunshot wound as consistent, he said, with someone taking the “bladed stance,” someone firing a gun in his left hand. The smuggler is, in fact, left handed.

According to the National Border Patrol Council, "three of the twelve jurors later submitted sworn affidavits alleging that they had been misled into believing that there could be no dissent in the decision of the jury, and that the minority would have to accede to the will of the majority.”

The U.S. Attorney, the program said, offered conflicting information. When asked why Aldrete-Davila wasn't charged with any crime, he said that because of the border agents’ actions, there was no evidence to charge the alleged drug smuggler. Moments earlier, he admitted that Aldrete-Davila's van was found with a large quantity of marijuana.

“America’s Most Wanted” concluded that Ramos and Compean did make mistakes, and should have receive some punishment. “But their 11 and 12 year sentences are forcing Border Patrol agents and law enforcement in general to question everything they do, to the detriment of our safety.”


  1. I'm so glad to see AMW helping to expose this travesty of justice on national television! This needs to be brought to more televisions in America by every means possible!

  2. There is an update on this travesty everyone.These agents are supposed to be guarded,yet agent Ramos was badly beaten by scumbags!!

  3. Congressman on Glenn Beck today said that one of the higher ups in the Homeland Security Dept.admitted under oath that Congress was lied to by the people involved in investigating the case.Officials name is Skinner,and Congressman McPaulsen is calling for resignations of four of the people that lied about the evidence they supposedly had on the two border patrol agents.


Please be civil. Thank you.
