Yesterday, Sean spoke with Jill Tahmooressi, Fox News host, Greta Van Susteren and Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ) about the U.S. Marine, Andrew Tahmooressi who has been held in a Mexican prison since April 1, 2014. Tahmooressi accidentally crossed the Mexican border while on his way to San Diego with his legally-owned firearms.
Jill Tahmooressi, mother of Sgt. Tahmooressi is discouraged by the lack of urgency on behalf of the Obama Administration to bring her son back from Mexico. Van Susteren has been following Sgt. Tahmooressi's case since the beginning, and even traveled to the border to expose how easy it would be to accidentally cross the border into Mexico. Salmon returned from Mexico last week after meeting with Sgt. Tahmooressi for a second time.
Currently, there is a resolution in the House of Representatives that demands the immediate release of Sgt. Tahmooressi, but so far, only 17 cosponsors have signed on.
The Tahmooressi family is also patiently waiting on the Obama Administration to acknowledge their Whitehouse.gov petition, which reached it's 100,000 signature threshold almost a month ago. The Administration is supposed to acknowledge the petition once it garners over 100,000 signatures.
