Federal Government Priorities Don’t Include the Marine Imprisoned in Mexico

I’m trying really hard not to use strong language here.

Here’s the story from Fox News:

A Mexican federal judge sent Andrew Tahmooressi back to prison after the U.S. Marine sergeant made his first official courtroom appearance since being locked up more than three months ago for accidentally crossing the border with guns in his pickup truck.

The 26-year-old veteran of two tours in Afghanistan was finally able to tell his story to a judge, after his case had been delayed by both Mexico’s unpredictable legal system and his own trouble settling on a lawyer. It was not immediately clear what Tahmooressi said at the evidentiary hearing, which was closed to the public. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for August 4.

Let me get this straight:

Our Attorney General *intentionally* funneled thousands of weapons into Mexico to drug cartels, and that’s OK.

Mexican military commonly cross our border—sometimes shooting at our Federal officers within the United States, as they did just a week or so ago—and that’s OK.

Mexico is facilitating an influx of tens of thousands of people across the border into the United States—that we then have to pay $250 per trespasser per day to care for—and that’s OK.

But one Marine suffering from PTSD accidentally crosses the border into Mexico, and he’s jailed for over 100 days with no end in sight. And President Obama is OK with that?!?

What happened to your pen and your phone, Mr. President? Are they broken?

I say send in the SEALS and bring this guy home. If Mexico so much as offers a peep, load up every single illegal alien in this country and fly them into Mexico City, one parachute each.

This is beyond ridiculous. Hello, Mr. President? Hello, Congress? Do you have more “strong words” about this situation? How about some action!
