First Radio Interview with Agent Ignacio Ramos, Jailed US Border Patrolman

Roger Hedgecock Has First Radio Interview with Agent Ignacio Ramos


San Diego, CA - Last night, recently released Border Patrol Agent Ignacio "Nacho" Ramos had his first radio interview on the nationally syndicated Roger Hedgecock Show.  The audio of the entire interview is available here.


Hedgecock has worked tirelessly since Agent Ramos' imprisonment to do whatever he could to ensure that Agent Ramos' family would remain economically stable and that every effort was being made to free the unfairly imprisoned Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean. 


In April of 2007, in partnership with FAIRhe organized the annual Hold Their Feet to the Fire event in Washington, D.C. to largely address the plight of Agents Ramos and Compean - more on that event here.


This event served to provide national attention to the circumstances of the unjust imprisonment.  History on the Agents story can be found here.


In September of 2007, Hedgecock flew to Arizona, bringing along his listeners, to help the American Freedom Riders with a benefit to raise money so that Agent Ramos' wife and children did not lose their home.  The benefit featured other celebrities and was a great success.  Details on that event here.


Hedgecock's engaging personality and straight talk have had much to do with ensuring that America was well informed as to the plight of the Border Agents.  Hedgecock states, "Ramos and Compean should be re-instated to the Border Patrol and put back on the border. Other than needing more time at the firing range, they have demonstrated they will defend our border. We need more agents like them."
