Border agents, whose sentences were commuted by President Bush, released from prison
CNN provide this update on the latest development in an oft-blogged case involving two former federal border agents. Here are the basics:
Two former U.S. Border Patrol agents -- whose cases became flashpoints in the controversy over border security -- were released early from prison Tuesday, one of their attorneys and a congressman said. The agents were convicted in 2006 of shooting and wounding an unarmed illegal immigrant and then covering it up.
President George W. Bush issued commutations for both men during his final days in office last month. Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean had received 11- and 12-year prison sentences, respectively.

Nice to see your ability, S.cotus, to take on the role usually played by federalist (who notably has lost his voice in this notable case).
