    Mexican cooperation could have spared Marine from ordeal, say border sources

    A U.S. Marine who has been held in a Mexican jail for two months after mistakenly crossing the border with guns could have been spared his continuing ordeal with a simple phone call - and the kind of courtesy American border officials extend to wayward Mexicans, including members of the military.Andrew Tahmooressi, 25, was trying to visit a friend near the border in San Ysidro March 31 when he missed the last exit on Interstate 5 and inadvertently crossed into Mexico. While his mistake was apparently due in part to a poorly marked - and recently changed - sign marking the last chance to make a U-turn back toward the U.S., some reasonable discretion by border officials could have spared him nearly two months in a Mexican prison, sources told Fox News.
    "This should have been a phone call," said a border patrol supervisor who used to work the San Diego sector. "I would call my counterpart on the south side, call in a favor and Sgt. Tahmooressi would have been back in a few hours. Why that didn't happen here, I don't know. There's no reason Mexico City and Washington should be involved in something like this."

    So, tell me again why we should be cooperating with Mexico in letting their border crossing violators go free? See what happens when an American crosses the Mexican border? They throw him in Max security prison....

    Let's trade 20 million illegals for our guy.

    Or better yet, just threaten to send the illegals back to Mexico. He'd be released immediately.

    But it is striking isn't it? I mean all we hear from Mexico, and their various smiling spokes people is how we need to be more compassionate toward their poor citizens just looking to feed their offspring in Mexico, and how not really a big deal it is for them to come on over....Yet when one American makes a mistake, well it's straight off to Max security prison for him....

    Simple do not use the services that employ latinos, 95% chance they are here illegally.
    If you are having work done on your house demand that no latinos work on your property. Do not eat mexican food unless you cook it yourself, mexican food is like the simplest food one can make.
    Once enough americans vote with there dollars things will change.
    Happens all the time i have heard of stories of truckers making the wrong turn ending up at a border crossing with no way to turn around ending up in prison.
    Do you see the democrates doing anything about it? hell no.

    Can you prove intent? Ever hear of due process?

    The first thought that comes to mind, when I think of Mexican law enforcement: corrupt.

    Keeping guns out of the hands of the poor is paramount to Mexicos owners.
