Lawmakers Say Mexico Close to Releasing Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi from Prison

Members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee said Wednesday that they believe Mexico will soon release Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, the U.S. Marine who has been held prisoner in Mexico after he crossed into that country carrying weapons in violation of Mexican law.

Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) said he met with Tahmooressi in prison back in June, and has continued to press Mexican authorities for his release. Royce said he made a breakthrough in a talk last week with Mexican authorities about Tahmooressi, who has been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

FK – The trash would like to have the same ‘laws’ here so they don’t like the idea getting out that this man was treated badly just because he decided to be armed and be able to exercise his most basic right.
