The article reports on the argument concerning the sentences given by former U.S President George W. Bush to Mexicans Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean for shooting a Mexican man. It reveals that the two men were sentenced to 11- and 12-year imprisonment. However, the Mexican government argues that Bush's decision was unlawful and depicts further implementation of military power along the country's border.
