It’s been well over 100 days since U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi accidentally drove across the border into Mexico with legally registered weapons and was detained by Mexican authorities.
Tahmooressi has made several pleas to Barack Obama to take action to get him out of prison, or to at least expedite due process and move up his trial, but has received nothing from the White House.
Jill Tahmooressi, the young Marine’s mother, has been making media appearances to try prodding the Obama adClick here to read about the massive boycott veterans organized against Mexico to bring home imprisoned Marine.ministration into answering her letters and petitions, but once again, the president has not said or done anything to help.
Inaction from Obama, his typical go-to strategy for dealing with any crisis, has prompted many pundits like Bill O’Reilly to call for a boycott of Mexico, and a group of bikers have held several rallies at the border to show their support for Sgt. Tahmooressi.
According to WND, the Marine Sargent’s mother is calling on the American people to show their support for her son by writing letters to him, which she says are an encouragement to the brave soldier.
“He needs to continue to hear from his supporters here in America, so that’s why we are asking for the public to write to him,” she said. “He has absolutely no distraction in that Mexican jail. Solitary confinement, no radio, no television; he is only allowed one book at a time, but he is allowed letters.
“So we encouraging the American people to write him letters because it keeps him connected … so he knows that he has not been forgotten.”
Mrs. Tahmooressi is feeling optimistic and hopeful that her family’s ordeal will be over in time for Labor Day, stating that the constant support she’s getting from folks across the country has been a blessing to her during these tough times.
“It’s amazing, coast to coast, I feel like my family has grown,” she said. ” … I now have this universe of a family. I know Andrew feels it, because I read to him the prayers and support messages. … He is so appreciative. That has been the most amazing thing … how America can rally together for this Marine.”
By ignoring this situation, President Obama is proving that he lacks integrity and doesn’t possess a shred of decent moral character.
Hopefully, the support of the American people will begin to wake up both the president and Congress to step up and do something to help this young man who has sacrificed so much for his country.
