We have left another man behind, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. The Sgt. who has PTSD has been languishing in a Mexican prison for two months. The only action taken by our government that we know of is Secretary of State John Kerry discussed it with his counterpart.
Why aren’t we shutting the borders to Mexican trade or cutting off aid until this marine is sent home? Why isn’t the president on the phone demanding it? We allow thousands of illegal Mexicans to enter this country each week but Sgt. Tahmooreesi gets stripped naked and chained standing up in a prison for making a wrong turn?
If you haven’t signed the petition demanding the release of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooreesi from a Mexican prison, please sign here.
The petition reads:
Demand Release of U.S.M.C. Sgt. Tahmooressi Suffering with PTSD from Mexico Imprisonment
Sgt. Tahmooressi, living in a truck having just arrived San Diego to seek VA assistance with PTSD supported by a Purple Heart veteran Marine; a 2 tour OEF meritoriously promoted Sergeant gets lost at the border and with one wrong turns ends up in the Mexico customs lane with no way to turn back. His truck piled high with possessions as he searched housing including his U.S. legally purchased firearms/ ammunition. Not intending to drive into Mexico he explains he is lost. Arrested since 4/1/2014, since incarceration his life has been threatened; sustained a neck wound requiring hospitalization and chained in a 4-point restraint, 26+days. The affect of this unjust incarceration on a decorated combat Marine is despairing. Tahmooressi supported by U.S. Consular Services yet low hope.
The petition has passed the 100,000 signatures needed but it would be better to have more, much more.
There is a second petition I urge people to sign, it will be hand delivered: Bill O’Reilly Petition for Sgt. Tahmooressi
