Re "Mexico's reforms will strengthen ties with California" (Viewpoints, Aug. 26): As Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieta visits Sacramento, I find it unconscionable that we welcome him knowing that Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been jailed in Mexico since March 31. For a soldier to be held this long for a minor acknowledged mistake only shows the disrespect this country has for the United States.
