Former Marine Ron Givens & I are planning Unity Rallies at Mexican consulates to demand the Mexican government free U.S. Marine Reservist Andrew Tahmooressi from prison. Our initial rally will take place in Sacramento, CA on May 5th at noon. We are urging others to start them in their cities.

Andrew has been imprisoned in Mexico for over a month for accidentally crossing the border & being in possession of 3 legal firearms. Andrew was moving from Florida to San Diego for treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder. Tahmooressi served three combat tours in Afghanistan. According to NBC San Diego, he got lost at night, and took the wrong off-ramp into Tijuana.

Congressman Duncan Hunter who is working to secure Andrew’s release said that road closures because of checkpoints and construction added to the confusion, and there was no opportunity for drivers to turn around. Andrew had all of his possessions in his truck, including his guns.

On the fourth day of Tahmooressi’s imprisonment, he told his Mom, "I’m not going to make it through the night, I’m gonna be killed tonight. Whatever you do, don’t come down here to ask questions”
Congressman Duncan Hunter who is working to secure his release said that Andrew was stabbed in the neck.

Andrew’s trial is set for May 28th.
