‘Sooner Or Later’: Mexican Diplomat Talks about Sgt. Tahmooressi’s Release

ZTah2Who can trust what any Mexican politician has to say? Our troops need to go in there and grab Tahmooressi out.

Mexico’s Consul General in San Francisco, Andrés Roemer, told Breitbart News this week that jailed United States Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who has been held for over 150 days in a Mexican prison on gun charges, could be released “sooner or later.”

In an interview with Breitbart News on Tuesday, outside of Napa’s Crosswalk Community Church, Roemer said he believed it was only a matter of time before Sgt. Tahmooressi’s release. “That’s what I think. I’m not the judge… But I think so,” he said.

Tahmooressi, who suffers from post traumatic stress disorder, was stopped by Mexican authorities after he crossed over the Mexican border with guns, which are banned in Mexico.

He immediately told police that he had been attempting to make a U-turn and said he had crossed the border by accident, and revealed to them that he had three guns in the back of his truck. However, he was denied a request to turn around and was instead arrested.

“We have to respect the judicial system in Mexico [just] as in the States. We have to respect what the judge will actually do,” Roemer told Breitbart News.
