The media will be barred from the tiny Mexican federal courtroom where a U.S. Marine jailed for two months after accidentally crossing the border with three registered guns will appear before a judge for the first time today.

Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been held in two Mexican prisons since his arrest, one of which he tried to escape after receiving threats, according to his supporters. He'll go before a federal judge in Mexico's sixth-largest city at 9 a.m. local time. According to his Tijuana-based attorney, Alejandro Osuna, Tahmooressi will be afforded the chance to tell his story to the judge. The Mexican customs agent and soldiers involved in his arrest will also make statements.

Why?
He only reads the comics and the Gay Personal ads.
Since the USA is a Vassal state of Mexico now there not much he would do anyways.

He needs to be released immediately or something like Executive Outcomes needs to solve this.

Why hasn't the US stopped all money transfers from US banks to Mexican banks? Closed the nearest border crossing? Arrest and jail 100 Mexican invaders in the US for every hour he's imprisoned? Sent the US ambassador to that jail with Marine guard and take him?

Oh yeah, we've got priorities....like training and arming Christian-killing terrorists in Syria.

grrr......

Heckofa price to pay for one wrong turn.

But why any American would voluntarily travel to this sh*thole of a country for any reason is a mystery.

Hard to believe this exists. They know absolutely that he got messed up on the road and stopped.

If bringing guns into Mexico is the issue, why don’t we trade Holder for him? Sounds win-win to me!

Well, Mexico certainly has border security.

No one mentions this irony.

The REAL problem here:

“Marine jailed for two months after accidentally crossing the border”

That we have a boarder with that country that is so poorly guarded that you can cross it by accident is in fact a disgrace!

He really is a world class jerk.

There were several times in American history that a border wall should have been erected:

(1) After the Mexican War

(2) After Pancho Villa raids

(3) After Operation Wetback

(4) After Reagan signed the 1986 amnesty

If it had been some gay activist or something Obama would have gotten him out pronto. But, since it's a Marine, he doesn't give a darn.

On Fox this morning they were asking why Obama had not done more. That presupposed he had done anything at all, which is unlikely.

They could start by issuing a travel advisory warning all Americans against traveling to Mexico. If that doesn't do anything, after a couple of days close the border to all US-passport holders (so Mexico would be like Cuba, or Cold War Albania, a country Americans are not allowed to travel to). If that doesn't work, close the border crossings to all travelers until the Marine is returned to the US safe and sound.

“Just make your check out to CASH, Seeenior, and you may go...”

We drove all the way from Kansas to the west coast of Mexico some 30 years ago with another couple. One of the things the insurance agent at the border told us was that we needed to take some extra cash with us and if ever stopped by the police just hand over some of it and they would let us go. We did get stopped in Guadalajara, guy who was driving our car quietly handed the cop five twenty dollar bills in a plain envelope when he handed him his driver’s license. Cop apologized, returned the license and we were on our way.

But that was then. Now we wouldn’t even fly over the country.

Sorry, you missed the biggest one - and the one that causes me the most pain: after 9/11. The country was scared and pi$$ed, and GWB was at the height of his popularity. We had the excuse and should have used it.

The argument was that if we sealed the Mexican boarder and not the Canadian, we would have been saying it was about nationality and not preventing terrorist from entering. So seal them both. If that’s what it takes, it should have been done.
