I realize Tahmooressi doesn’t refuse to speak to his own mother and father.
Perhaps Tahmoooressi offends our president. Tahmoooressi just isn’t Obama’s cup of tea.
So let’s assume the border will never be closed by Obama. That might actually offend the Mexican prison guards who kicked our Marine hero in the ribs while he was chained by all four wrists and ankles to a filthy bed. That might offend the Mexican prison doctors who withheld food and water from him. We couldn’t have that in Obama’s politically correct, bow-to-foreigners world.
So let’s move on to more realistic, doable solutions. Given the fact that America is still a Republic, with a Constitution that protects States’ Rights, it’s time for our Republican border state governors to take a stand.
The governors of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico may not have the right to close the border, but they can help increase the odds of Tahmooressi’s release by setting up an "agricultural check-point" one block from every border crossing and staff the check point with ONE very slow moving inspection agent who is under orders to inspect EVERY vehicle that passes through. That agent should be ordered to ask every driver coming from Mexico to step out of the vehicle to be hand searched. He should check pockets for seeds that do not belong in the United States. Each search should be exceedingly S-L-O-W. Within hours the backup will stretch to Mexico City and we can all be assured that our hero Marine will be freed.
Gov. Rick Perry are you listening? Gov. Jan Brewer? Gov. Susana Martinez? This is your chance to show how a Republican leader defends and protects the citizens of the United States.
Tahmooressi's release should have been achieved many weeks ago, if this had been handled correctly by our president. But better late than never. My bet is we'll hear about his release this week. Why? Only because of the pressure put on by patriots and conservatives across this country.
So please keep the calls, letters and emails coming to Congress and the White House. Even Obama has to act under this kind of national outrage.
Hang on Tahmooressi. America is coming!
