Brown must push Mexico to release Marine

Published: Thursday, Jul. 24, 2014 - 2:07 pm

Re "California-Mexico bonds will grow" (Viewpoints, July 23): Gov. Jerry Brown, for your forthcoming visit to Mexico to strengthen trade and investment with California, you should start the meeting with Jose Antonio Meade, Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs, by stating that Mexico has 12 hours to release Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi or we are completely closing down the border.

President Barack Obama has ignored the honorably discharged Marine and the U.S. Code, Title 22, Chapter 23, Sec. 1732 it in titled "Release of Citizens Imprisoned by Foreign Governments." Otherwise the phrase "Leave no one behind" is meaningless.
