After 100 days in Mexican prison, Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi to get day in court
Fox News.com ^ | July 8, 2014 | Joseph J. Kolp

On his 101st day in captivity in Mexico, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi will finally get his day in court Wednesday before a federal judge in Tijuana.

Because of delays prompted by both Mexico's unpredictable legal system and Tahmooressi's trouble settling on a lawyer, the hearing will be the first time a judge gets to hear directly from the 26-year-old veteran of two tours in Afghanistan. Although his new lawyer is urging caution, Tahmooressi's mother said the family hopes federal Judge Victor Octavio Luna Escobedo will free him.

"Andrew expressed his hope to be released on Wednesday as the judge will hear his statement and conclude non-intentional approach of the U.S.A.- Mexico border," Jill Tahmooressi said.

Frequent Fox guest, Col David Hunt (Ret) has said (on the Howie Carr Show) this Marine is not so innocent, that he has basically trafficked guns several times.

Yeah I guess if the Marine had converted to Islam that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave would have done anything to get him free.

Although his new lawyer is urging caution,

If that's the same lawyer interviewed by Greta, I wouldn't trust that shyster with my life........

The question that needs to be asked is how much is he demanding for his services and ultimate payoffs to the proper authorities?

If that is true, won’t Eric Holder offer him a job? / S

Of course they do. They feel it is more PC to help the criminals, and we know PC is a permanent part of our culture. The politicians are looking for votes. They think there are more votes from helping criminals, than doing the right thing, and helping this Marine. The politicians will do the wrong thing every single time.

Want him released within 5 hours? Block the traffic lanes just south of the turnaround on the SB 5. Have in your car a 'Garbage Pail Kids' sticker or similar sticker, and refuse to move forward, as entering Mexico with such items is outright illegal. Refuse to drive the wrong way or back up on the 5 - 'I'm not comfortable with that, officer.' And then put atop your cars 'Free Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.' TV news cameras on helicopters will eat this up.

Takes 5 patriots, 7 if you also use the shoulders, and all traffic into Mexico at that crossing is finished until your 'concerns' about 'accidentally bringing something illegal into Mexico' are addressed. 'I don't want to get arrested like Sgt. Tahmooressi was.'

I heard him say it, in different ways, more than once, on a show since the Bergdahl trade. I don’t know where he got the info, but he seemed sure of it, and IIRC, said it was 4 or 5 times of him taking guns across the border.

“Frequent Fox guest, Col David Hunt (Ret) has said (on the Howie Carr Show) this Marine is not so innocent, that he has basically trafficked guns several times.”

That is an absolute lie as Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi said that he drove drove out of the USA and into Mexico by mistake.

Just a simple mistake and he Mexicans think they can jail and prosecute an American citizen.

Should be more than some. Every member of the GOP in the House/Senate should be involved.

That’s right. Problem is, Obama has created such a mess that all of them can’t address all of the messes all at once. Obama is overwhelming everything.

I wonder how much $$$$ a U.S. citizen boycott of Mexican goods has cost Mexico so far? There’s lots of Mexican fruits and vegetables not being sold out there.

I doubt this Marine has traficked more guns than Holder and Obama (F&F).. Besides, if that were true wouldn’t the Obama regime remind us of that by now?

Based on what info? Did he give a source? If he'd trafficked guns before, he would have been detained before? He has those records, or what?

Ah, the real rub - he’s competition to Obama’s trafficking of military-grade guns to the drug cartels...

If that allegation was correct. Did Hunt substantiate his claims?

I think America should be asking how thousands - maybe hundreds of thousands - of Central American kids could make it all the way through Mexico without being caught and put in jail like this guy. The hypocrisy is absolutely stunning.

The measure they give should be the measure they get. Those kids coming across our border? Throw every one of them in jail - no discretion - and hold them there for 100 days before they get a chance to explain themselves. Tell them they committed an act of war by being here after knowing they were here illegally.
