Former El Paso Border Patrol Agents Released From Prison

At 3 a.m. Mountain time former Border Patrol agent Jose Compean was released from the Elkton Federal Prison in Elkton, Ohio. Former agent Ignacio Ramos was released about five hours later from the Phoenix Federal Prison in Phoenix, Ariz.

Ramos and Compean will “officially” be released from Federal Bureau of Prison custody on March 20, but on Tuesday both were allowed to rejoin their families as part of a house arrest agreement. They had been in prison since January 2007.
