All the histrionics performed by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher were not the reason Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean got their sentences commuted by then-President Bush last week.
But they didn’t hurt.
Rohrabacher talked about them — and what he perceived as a travesty of justice in their convictions — everywhere he went.
Now, he can sit back and enjoy the fruits of his labor.
“Our prayers have been answered!” Rohrabacher said in a statement released to the media. “This is not just a day of celebration for the families, but it is a victory for all Americans. The hearts of all patriots are filled with joy at the announcement that our brave border defenders ... will be freed from unjust captivity.”
