Yesterday a Mexican judge ordered the immediate release of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. He has crossed the border and is now safely in the United States.
Mr. Tahmooressi spent eight months in a Mexican jail – much of it in solitary confinement – for the “crime” of accidentally crossing the border while carrying weapons in his vehicle – by driving into a road lane that took him to Mexico, and had no exit lane…so when he realized where he was going there was nothing he could do about it.
While in jail, Tahmooressi, who suffers from PTDS (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) attempted suicide, claiming that Mexican guards threatened him with rape and torture.
We owe thanks to a group of Republicans and Democrats who worked very hard to get him out.
We owe no thanks to President Barack Obama, who, while happy to allow tens of thousands of illegals to cross our borders while Tahmooressi was jailed, never said a word or did a thing to secure his release.
And that goes double for Mexican President enrique pena nieto, who is just as happy as Barack Obama to allow people to illegally cross from Mexico to the USA, but – like our President – didn\’t lift do a thing on behalf of Mr. Tahmooressi.
