Help get a United States Marine out of Mexican prison!
May 30, 2014
So when I heard about Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, I had to do my part to get his story out.
I decided to write an article about it on Volkalize, you can read the full story HERE.
Basically, a US marine accidentally crossed the border into Mexico after moving across the country to San Diego. He still had all of his belongings in his car, including 3 guns.
He was immediately arrested and his been in custody in Mexico ever since.
Andrew fought in Afganistan and he is now diagnosed with PTSD.
Just a little perspective for you: this has happened before, and the US government was able to get the marine released within two weeks. It is also the policy of the United States that when any servicemen from Mexico is caught on our borders or in our country, we give them back to Mexico. So its pretty out of the ordinary for a US Marine to be kept in Mexico this long.
Ill try to keep you posted as this story develops but for more info you can follow the story HERE.
Here’s a pic from a rally I attended with my friend Audrea Taylor.
