A group of bikers in Arizona are organizing a ride to the border to try and free jailed U.S. Marine Andrew Tahmooressi, who is being held in Mexico. Tahmooressi got lost on the way back to San Diego from Tijuana and was arrested when Mexican police found guns, which are legal in the U.S. but illegal in Mexico, in his car. According to our friends at Young Conservatives,
ride organizer John Harrington said that the breaking point – what inspired him to do this – was “when we let five terrorists go to spring a traitor.” The Obama administration traded five Guantanamo Bay prisoners for Bergdahl, who has been accused of deserting his post and his country, while ignoring pleas to free Tahmooressi. While it’s unclear what the bikers will do when they get to Mexico and how effective this will be, one thing is clear: they’ll be doing something other than ignore it. And that’s a lot more than the folks in Washington can say.
