Congress Takes Up Case of U.S. ‘War Hero’ Jailed in Mexico, Ignored by Obama

(CNSNews.com) – A House Foreign Affairs subcommittee took up the “extremely important issue” of a U.S. Afghanistan war veteran who’s been held in a Mexican prison for more than six months after taking a wrong turn into Mexico with guns in his car.

Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi says the whole thing was a mistake, but Mexico has so far refused appeals from his mother and even from members of Congress to release him.

In his opening statement on Wednesday, Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) said he is “mystified” that President Obama found time to negotiate with the Taliban for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked away from his unit in Afghanistan, but couldn’t find time to “call our ally, the Mexican president, to appeal to him on behalf of our Marine.”

“If we in Congress don’t do everthing in our power to get Sgt. Tahmooressi, an injured war hero, back to the States for treatment, then what are we doing here? Making sure that our combat veterans are taken care of when they return is one of our most honored and sacred obligations.”

Andrew Tahmooressi’s Imprisonment Is Something We Should Be Ashamed Of

The American Spectator

What to make of the peculiar situation unfolding just across the border in Tijuana, where U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi languishes in solitary confinement for the crime of mistakenly crossing the border with his personal weapons in his truck on March 31?

Nothing to inspire confidence, for certain. In fact, Tahmooressi’s ordeal might just confirm many of our worst fears about the Obama administration.

The Tahmooressi story sounds more like a schlocky Hollywood script than a real-life tale. Its protagonist is a decorated Marine veteran of two tours of duty in Afghanistan, honorably discharged in 2012 and diagnosed with a severe case of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); he was moving to the San Diego area specifically for treatment of his PTSD. And Tahmooressi’s ordeal is mind-bogglingly unjust; he mistakenly crossed the border from San Ysidro, California, into Mexico because he missed an interstate exit that would have taken him to dinner with friends. Instead, the twenty-five-year old war hero wound up at a Mexican border station driving a pickup truck full of his possessions, which included two rifles and a pistol, plus ammunition.

Family Security Matters

The Mexican judge who heard Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi‘s case denied him freedom and ordered him back to jail in a ruling that was handed down early Thursday morning.

Reaction from supporters was swift and critical.

Billionaire businessman and frequent Obama administration critic Donald Trump said on Fox News that the White House could do more to secure the release of Sgt. Tahmooressi, who has been imprisoned in Mexico for more than 100 days after mistakenly carrying three firearms – that he legally owns in America – across the border.

“[Just] one phone call – and I mean a strong phone call – and he would be released in a second,” Mr. Trump said.

Meanwhile, social media posters expressed outrage on GretaWire.com, Greta Van Susteren’s blog, on the breaking announcement of Sgt. Tahmooressi‘s continued imprisonment.

Media Scrubs Malia Obama Vacation Story

Once again there is a double standard. The WhiteHouse doesn’t want the media talking about Obama’s kids but Obama brings them up all the time on the campaign trail, but here’s my question. Why is that The State Department has stated that due to the violence in Mexico, that Americans should not travel there and yet it’s okay for one of Obama’s kids to go there without either parent? Are the Seceret Service also doubling as a baby-sitter? If so that is an abuse of power but then again so is everything else Obama does. Don’t get me wrong, the kids are not the problem, Obama is. And how many vacations do these people get? Even the military only get 30 days a year.

That’s my opinion anyway.                           1 Dragon

Middle Eastern Terrorists Plan U.S. Attack From Mexico

Judical Watch

Middle Eastern terrorists have infiltrated Latin American countries—especially Mexico—to plan an attack against the United States, according to an alarming exposé broadcast this week by the world’s largest Spanish news network.

The Univision documentary, “La Amenaza Irani,” (Iranian Threat), uses undercover, never-before-seen video footage to illustrate how Iran’s growing political, economic and military ties to Latin America threaten U.S. security. The videos were part of a seven-month investigation in which college-aged Mexicans infiltrated diplomatic circles in Mexico to obtain recordings that prove diplomats from Iran, Venezuela and Cuba planned a cybernetic attack against the White House, FBI, Pentagon and U.S. nuclear plants.

Blood On Their Hands: Giving Guns to Criminals Was the Plan All Along

Townhall

“Allowing loads of weapons that we knew to be destined for criminals, this was the plan. It was so mandated.” –Special Agent John Dodson ATF Phoenix Field Division.

Damning new evidence from Capitol Hill shows that ATF Directors and Justice Department Officials knew about and encouraged the purposeful trafficking of thousands of weapons across the southern border, despite strong objections from ATF agents. Thousands of innocent lives were taken as the result, including those of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jamie Zapata.

New emails released by House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa show that ATF Director Kenneth Melson was briefed weekly about Operation Fast and Furious and watched  a live feed of straw purchasers (who serve as middle men, purchasing guns and giving them to cartel members) in Arizona gun shops from his cozy Washington D.C. office. Emails also show that Deputy Assistant Director for Field Operations William McMahon was enthusiastic about the operation.

Hezbollah Sets Up Base Near Mexican Border

A terrorist organization whose home base is in the Middle Easthas established another home base across the border in Mexico.

“They are recognized by many experts as the ‘A’ team of Muslim terrorist organizations,” a former U.S. intelligence agent told 10News.

The former agent, referring to Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah, added, “They certainly have had successes in big-ticket bombings.”

Some of the group’s bombings include the U.S. embassy in Beirut and Israeli embassy in Argentina.

Mexico is angry

Be certain and read the part below that says “Read to the bottom…”  Maybe this is what the U.S. needs to do?!?!  Please forward to all you know and ask them to forward to all they know.  Maybe we can make this happen if we act in concert, all together, because Mexico doesn’t want their own people!

SO, MEXICO IS ANGRY! I SAY,Three cheers for Arizona!!!


Suddenly the shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from the State of Sonora , Mexico do not like it.  Can you believe the nerve, the gall, of these people?  It’s almost funny if it weren’t such a tragedy. The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico . Nine state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona ‘s new employer crackdown on illegals from Mexico . It seems that many Mexican illegals are returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state government are unhappy.

A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to state that Arizona ‘s new Employer Sanctions Law will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state. At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora , – Arizona ‘s southern neighbor – made up of mostly small towns – cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools that it will face as Mexican  workers return to their Mexican hometowns from the USA without jobs or money.



The Arizona law, which took effect Jan. 1,  punishes Arizona employers who knowingly hire individuals without valid legal documents to work in the United States . Penalties include suspension of, or loss of, their business license.

The Mexican legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their hometowns, placing a burden on THEIR state government. ‘How can Arizona pass a law like this?’ asked Mexican Rep Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales . ‘There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona ,’ she said, speaking in Spanish. ‘Mexico is not prepared for this; for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and who were sending money to their families return to their home-towns in Sonora without jobs,’ she said. ‘We are one family, socially and economically,’ she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona .

Wrong! The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico , and its taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico ‘s citizens. It’s time for the Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop feeding parasitically off the United States and to start taking care of its/their own needs.


Too bad that other states within the USA don’t pass a law just like that passed by Arizona . Maybe that’s the answer, since our own Congress will do nothing!

3. All government business will be conducted in our language.
4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.
5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.
6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs. Any burden will be deported.
7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

9. Foreigners may have no protests; no demonstrations, no waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies. These will lead to deportation.
