Special Edition: Border Betrayal
Aired March 27, 2007 - 20:00 ET

LOU DOBBS, CNN ANCHOR: Tonight, we're outside the federal prison in Yazoo City, Mississippi.
We're here tonight to help uncover the truth about the prosecution and the ultimate imprisonment of two former Border Patrol agents, Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.

Ramos is serving his sentence here. Compean is in a prison in Ohio. This is as close, by the way, as we're allowed to be to this prison in Yazoo City. We wanted to be here for this very important report. Tonight, you're going to meet the man who prosecuted these two agents, the people who defended them, and some of our elected officials who have the decency and courage to overcome what many see as a grievous injustice against these two former Border Patrol agents.

The two men are serving harsh sentences for shooting and wounding an illegal alien drug smuggler from Mexico. That smuggler was given immunity by the U.S. Justice Department in return for his testimony against those agents.

Stay with us for this very special hour, as we look for the answers and examine this very important case, a case that many are calling, straight out, a miscarriage of justice.

ANNOUNCER: This is a special edition of LOU DOBBS TONIGHT: "Border Betrayal."...
