I hope these folks get their kid back for Christmas.
Surely Eric Holder must have some sway with the Mexican authorities. /s
Let`s swap 12 million illegal mexicans for one Marine- It`s a fair swap.
Sam Houston probably would have gone to get him out. And in later years colonel Charles Askins probably would have, too...
Send “Dog” Chapman after him. It’s been done before.
Imagine if this was an illegal alien in one of our jails after killing an American mother and her two American children while he was driving drunk. The “immigrant advocates” would be raising holy hell that the mean old Americans have their boy locked up and are not treating him like a king.
The local news reported that he claims to have checked with officials on both sides of the border and was told it was okay to take his shotgun into Mexico. That doesn’t make sense to me because there are warning signs posted at the border about what is not allowed. There is no way the US officials said it was okay. The posted story says he was arrested while trying to register his gun in Mexico. That makes more sense. His mistake was in not getting the permit before crossing with the gun. I’ve hunted whitewing in Mexico and it takes a lot of time and effort to get permits to cross with shotguns. It’s not something that can be done at the last moment.
It seems to be an innocent mistake on his part. I hope he gets out of that hell hole soon.
