U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Oregon, has spoken to President Donald Trump about possible pardons for Oregon ranchers Dwight and Stephen Hammond.
On Thursday, Walden met with their family in Harney County.
He tweeted a photo, saying he was proud to tell them that the president was seriously considering the request.
Walden called their sentence unfair.
The Hammonds, father and son, remain in a federal prison serving time for an arson conviction.
