Since the Obama Administration is not going to listen to anyone about United States Marine Corps Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi, the Republicans in the House will. On October 1, the House Committee on Foreign Affairs is having a hearing called Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi:  Our Marine in Mexican Custody.

Statement from Jill Tahmoressi

Sgt Tahmooressi sent a message through his mother, who posted it as her Facebook status.

Andrew is very appreciative towards Chairman Ed Royce and Congressman Matt Salmon for their relentless pursuit of his freedom back to the USA for continuation of his PTSD treatment plan unintentionally aborted 3/31.

Statement from Representative Royce

Here, via the Committee on Foreign Affairs website , is Representative Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the committee.

“We should never forget the sacrifices men and women in uniform have made.  U.S. Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi’s combat-related PTSD is a life-threatening condition he acquired in defense of his country while serving on the battlefields of Afghanistan, and he needs to return to the United States for specific and urgent treatment.    I have maintained my respect for Mexico’s laws and sovereignty throughout, but since visiting Sgt. Tahmooressi at his prison in Mexico, I have become more committed than ever to ensuring his immediate release on humanitarian grounds.  Sgt. Tahmooressi is an American hero, whose wrong turn at the Mexican border has had the devastating effect of delaying his much-needed PTSD treatment for too  long.”

Statement from Representative Salmon

Representative Matt Salmon (R-AZ), who has visited with Sgt Tahmooressi, also had a statement. He is the chairman of the Western Hemisphere Subcommittee.

“As Congress begins to contemplate once again committing our nation’s servicemen and women to the fight against terrorism, it is incumbent on us to stand by our heroes when they return home.  As a direct result of his honorable service in Afghanistan, U.S. Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi now suffers from combat related PTSD.  Tragically, instead of receiving the treatment he needs, he is being held in a Mexican prison.  As a Member of Congress it is my obligation and duty to protect heroes like Andrew who have suffered the ravages of war in service to our nation.” said Rep. Salmon. “I’m convening this hearing to honor his service and work to ensure his immediate release so that he can receive the treatment he needs.”

Since the administration has done minimal work in trying to get back most US citizens put in this position, it is time that Congress acts. The liberal media will hide or attack any push to get this hero out of harm’s way.
