On March 31, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi was imprisoned by the Mexican government for accidentally crossing the US-Mexico border with legal firearms in his truck. Sgt. Tahmooressi has been living under the harsh treatment of Mexican officials for 173 days and counting.
President Obama has failed to request the release of Sgt. Tahmooressi–even after speaking with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto recently. Several US Congressmen have already called for Sgt. Tahmooressi’s release, including Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) who has taken a major role in demanding his release. Others working to facilitate Sgt. Tahmooressi’s release have been ignored by the Obama Adminstration.
Even Tahmooressi’s mother Jill pleaded with President Obama to demand his release. A 64 year-old Vietnam vet is marching to Washington in protest of the Marine’s imprisonment. He refuses to let Sgt. Tahmooressi be forgotten.
President Obama’s complete disrespect for our servicemen and women is disgraceful. No service member, especially not veterans like Sgt. Tahmooressi who proudly served two tours overseas, deserve this sort of treatment at the hand of a foreign government.

We the undersigned are calling for the immediate release of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.
President Obama’s complete disrespect for our servicemen and women is disgraceful.
Since Obama will not speak up for Sgt. Tahmooressi, we will. We will not allow our heroes to suffer this injustice while our nation’s leaders sit idly by.
Therefore, we believe it is time that President Obama demand Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi’s release. We urge President Obama to take our request seriously and act immediately before Mexico can do more harm to Sgt. Tahmooressi.
