While we welcome the release of Marine veteran Sergeant Andrew Tahmoorissi – a man who took a wrong turn at the border while carrying weapons prohibited in Mexico and was held in a craphole for 7-months – perhaps the Judge was influenced by the upcoming mid-terms that could empower the GOP to curtail aid to Mexico.
It is possible that Tahmoorissi’s attorney convinced the judge that the Sergeant could not receive adequate medical treatment for his PTSD in Mexico and that the former soldier might make good on a previous suicide attempt – something that would greatly anger Americans and provoke a backlash against Mexico.
Bottom line …
Considering the fact that Mexico has done little or nothing to stem the outflow of illegal aliens to the United States, they should be treated like a dangerous presence on our border rather than a trusted partner like Canada.
Considering the outrage of Mexican military crossing our border and shooting at Border Patrol Agents with a simple apology should have made Tahmooressi’ s release a slam-dunk.
Unfortunately, they decided to play politics – and even worse – President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats did nothing!
