Compean’s Wife Wants Heart-to-Heart with Bush

I wish I understood why Bush is not willing to pardon these border agents.

While another year passes without a presidential pardon for Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos, the families are reaching out for an 11th-hour act of compassion.

Jose Compean’s wife, Patty, told WND she will not resent George W. Bush if he leaves office without granting her husband freedom, but she would like to have a heart-to-heart moment with the president.

“I would just sit down, introduce myself and listen to him to see where he’s coming from and what his point of view is,” she said. “Then I’d ask for him to give me the same courtesy. He’d get to see where we’re coming from, and I’d get to see where he’s coming from. I can’t change anybody’s mind, but I would like that opportunity.”

Sign WND’s petition urging President Bush to free U.S. Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.

While many people might expect her to be angry with President Bush’s silence, Patty has chosen not to take that position.

“I can’t judge the man because I’m not in his shoes,” she said with sincerity. “He’s doing what he thinks is right at the moment. He’s going to deal with the consequences, not me.”

Her calm outlook might be shocking to some people, especially since her children are growing up without a father while the president has pardoned or commuted sentences for 36 drug dealers, 12 thieves, seven embezzlers, an arsonist, an armed bank robber and an illegal-alien smuggler.
