Awesome: This Politician Just Took A Major Stand For Sgt. Tahmooressi That Mexico Can’t Ignore

As Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto prepares to be honored at a luncheon hosted by California Gov. Jerry Brown, at least one of the state’s elected officials will be noticeably absent.

Assemblyman Tim Donnelly sent a pointed letter to Brown expressing his disapproval of the upcoming luncheon and explaining what he will be doing instead of attending it.

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

Referring to Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, Donnelly chided Brown for his failure to use his public voice to call for the return of the California native.

Tahmooressi was arrested and imprisoned earlier this year after he reportedly took a wrong turn into Mexico while in possession of legally owned firearms and ammunition. A subsequent effort by many Americans, including Donnelly, to facilitate his return has thus far been unsuccessful.

The assemblyman previously sent Barack Obama a letter asking him to intervene on behalf of Tahmooressi and has taken part in a number of other related events, including an Independence Day prayer vigil near the Mexico border.

Donnelly’s next effort to bring the Marine sergeant home is outlined in his letter to Brown.

“I know that my absence may distress you,” he wrote, “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 one, our Marine, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.”

He accused Brown of being “too tired” to fight for the American hero, claiming he has used his energy “fighting for the rights of the only constituents you truly represent, elitists, illegals, and public sector union bosses.”

Details of the protest are available on a Facebook page inviting concerned citizens to join in the effort on Aug. 26.

  1. Often, there are reports of Mexican soldiers encroaching on the territory of the United States. Perhaps the simplest solution would be to capture half a dozen of them and exchange them for Sergeant Tahmooressi as Obama did with Bergdahl.

  2. The Marines need to cross the border and re-take our soldier!!!

  3. It's a crying shame that anyone who reportedly had a vast abundance of Relatives here in America would ever want to come back while knowing full well that aboslutely nobody is still left alive. To then, and I do say I am sorry for all of those hard at work folks from all over South America, but those who gave and still give away what they now claim to want is liken to closing the barn door after all of the animials inside have run off.

  4. Moonbeam Brown hates Marines.

    Moonbeam Brown is a turd who is nothing but a piece of shit. He should have told that beaner president of Mexico that the only award he'll get is the Fickle Finger of Fate Award. As a matter of fact he should have been told to stay in Tacoland.But then again this is Calif.

  6. THIS IS JUST ONE MORE REASON WHY "EVERYONE" OF THE SO CALLED CHILDREN INVADING OUR COUNTRY SHOULD BE TURNED AROUND AND CUT LOOSE IN MEXICO AND LET THEM WORRY ABOUT THEM. MEXICO IS THE REASON THEY ARE HERE.
    WE NEED TO BOYCOTT MEXICO. NO TRAVEL, NO VACATIONS, NO BUSINESS. SQUEEZE THEM A LITTLE.

    The inaction to assist Sgt. Tahmooressi by Governor Brown, President Obama, and numerous other democRATS disclose a party that is fixated on itself instead of this Country or its citizenry. The people who vote these treasonous people into office election cycle after election cycle can't possibly be that stupid. They are also culpable in the tearing down of this great Nation. I will continue to pray for this Marine who has fought for his country only to have his plight ignored by that Country's leaders. My own State of Florida keeps on re-electing a pile of walking dog excrement who works hard for our Nation to be without borders. His name is Bill Nelson, and he whines that his parents were immigrants. What he doesn't say is that they were legal immigrants and must have at least worked to learn the English language. What Nelson supports is illegals streaming across our borders demanding welfare, food stamps, and schooling for their children while waving the Mexican flag. What Nelson and his democrat cronies will get in return are votes as soon as Obama declares them citizens with a stroke of his pen on an executive order. c
