We, the undersigned, are becoming increasingly concerned over the detention by Mexican authorities of Andrew Tahmooressi, a citizen of the United States, who has been held in jail in your country for the past two months.
Mr. Tahmooressi, a Marine reservist who has served his nation honorably in two wars, was arrested in Mexico after he mistakenly crossed a border point near Tijuana on March 31st . Since then, in spite of all evidence that he entered Mexico by mistake, the authorities in Mexico have not released him. This has created a hardship not only for the young man but also his family and friends.
Therefore, in the interest of justice, we ask the Mexican government to immediately release Sgt. Tahmooressi and expedite his quick return to the United States of America.
