Republican Lawmaker Makes Huge Stand Against 
Mexican President Over Jailed Marine

August 20, 2014

Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi is still being detained 
by Mexican authorities, and unfortunately, 
Obama administration is refusing to help or even 
acknowledge the existence of the situation.

The lack of action has outraged Americans, 
of whom have signed petitions asking for the 
federal government to take steps to have 
Tahmooressi freed from prison and returned to the United States.

Tahmooressi, along with his mother Jill, 
made plea after plea to the president, which seem 
to have fallen on deaf ears. Many pundits and 
government officials have called for a 
of Mexico, hitting them hard in the wallet, until 
they decide to release Tahmooressi or at least speed up due process.

Further agitating Tahmooressi supporters is the 
decision by California Gov. Jerry Brown to attend 
a luncheon which will honor the president of 
Mexico, to be hosted at the governor’s mansion.

According to 
this action has deeply angered Republican state 
assemblyman Tim Donnelly who was offered an 
invitation to the event, but declined, crafting a 
scathing response for Brown, slamming him for 
participating in such an event without demanding 
the release of the Marine being held captive in Mexico.

“I am writing to decline your luncheon 
invitation, and to express my deep disappointment 
that you would entertain the president of a 
nation that is holding an active-duty U.S. Marine captive.”

“How you could visit Mexico and not publicly 
demand the release of Marine Sgt. Andrew 
Tahmooressi, is beyond me. 
 Instead of visiting 
our imprisoned Marine, you were feted by his captors.”

Donnelly’s powerful rebuke went on to address 
Brown’s eagerness to help illegals live more 
comfortably in America, while ignoring his own people.

“You care more about the comfort of those who 
have illegally entered our country than you do 
for your own countrymen. You have spent endless 
billions of taxpayer dollars provided by the 
legal citizens of California to make certain that 
illegal aliens feel comfortable in our state.”

The Republican lawmaker closes out his written 
rejection of Brown’s invitation with a sharp barb 
that states his intention to join a protest, 
saying that if the governor’s conscience bothers 
him, he’s free to join in on the action.

“I know that my absence may distress you, but it 
may comfort you to know that I’ll be standing 
outside leading a protest, doing the job you 
should have done as the highest elected official 
in California: demanding the release of one of 
our own, our Marine, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.”

“You are welcome to join us if your conscience bothers you.”

Boom. Rep. Donnelly is absolutely spot on here. 
It’s a shame, a complete disgrace to honor the 
Mexican president, the man who has complete 
authority to release a wrongfully detained 
American citizen 
even petitioning on the Marine’s behalf.

The truth of the matter is that Obama and his 
cronies around the country see no political 
benefit from freeing Sgt. Tahmooressi. Perhaps 
they are afraid that if they take hard action 
against Mexico, the president will prevent his 
people from sneaking across the border and 
Democrats with free voters.

Regardless, Americans need to continue signing 
petitions and make noise to help rescue 
Tahmooressi from prison. If the movement 
continues, sooner or later, the government will have to respond.

Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter 
if you agree with Rep. Tim Donnelly and stand in 
support of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi being returned home soon.
