Tell Congress: Free Tahmooressi!

A twenty-five year old U.S. Marine reservist is currently behind bars in a Mexican prison.

A twenty-five year old U.S. Marine reservist is currently behind bars in a Mexican prison.

His crime: mistakenly carrying his legally-owned firearms into the country after missing a California freeway exit.

According to a Fox News story, Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi was in the process of relocating to San Diego to room with a fellow Marine when he misnavigated and ended up south of the international border – an event that led to his apprehension and incarceration by Mexican authorities in late March.

The young Marine has been in detention for over a month and is currently located forty miles east of Tijuana… and it’s time for members of Congress to act demand the Mexican Government for Tahmooressi’s release!

A veteran who served in two combat tours in Afghanistan should not be left abandoned in a foreign prison.

Take Action: Sign the petition and DEMAND your U.S. Representative and Senators to rally for the release of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi!

Mexico has captured an American soldier in a time of peace at a border crossing, perhaps this should be viewed as an Act of War!

It is a disgrace that this has gone on so long. One outraged phone call from our so call commander in chief would have ended this months ago. It's time to tell the Marines at Camp Pendleton to go get their brother in arms.
