The fate of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been on my mind for several days now, and I may have finally come up with a solution to the problem. Sgt. Tahmooressi had recently moved to Southern California from Florida when, on April first, he accidentally missed a turnoff on the highway and drove right into Mexico - missing a turnoff being something that most of us have done at one time or another. Unfortunately he had a couple of guns in his truck – guns he had a legal right to have according to American law, but not according to Mexican law. Realizing his mistake, he was honest and immediately reported this fact, adding that he had not intended to enter Mexico at all. Rather than direct him back over the border, some Mexican official had him arrested and incarcerated, and he has suffered quite enough at this point. Even CNN has played a video about his case.
Clearly, we cannot exchange Tahmooressi for a dangerous Taliban who has been held in our prison in Guantanamo – President Obama might want another photo op and need to use one or more of them to bring back some other angry, stupid, American-passport owning fool who hates this country. But we do have another bargaining chip and I urge the Governors of Texas and other states along the border (are you listening, Jan Brewer?) to use it because clearly it doesn’t interest Obama.
In 2011, approximately 6,000 illegal immigrants crossed the border. Most of these illegal immigrants are now children although in fact a high percentage are in their teens and include drug dealers, rapists, and other criminal elements and not a few bring contagious diseases with them. This year, another 60,000 illegal immigrants are expected, and an even greater number in 2015. Most of them are from Central America, not Mexico, and just in case you are unaware of Mexican immigration laws – well, they are a lot tougher than American ones, and the Mexicans do not want Central Americans in their country.
Therefore, I urge the governors of American border states, especially the Governor of Texas, to offer to deport these Central Americans to Mexico unless Sgt. Tahmooressi is returned to the USA. When he is returned, then we (this state or states) can turn over the Central Americans to Mexico anyway, or to their countries of origin. Some will say this will angry Mexico or the Central American countries – but wasn’t it Mexico that allowed them to cross their country? As to the Central American countries, well borders need to be protected on both sides and they obviously are not doing so.
If my solution is enacted, the Mexicans will be rid of Sgt. Tahmooressi, and if we send them directly back to their own countries, it is a big win for Mexico. If we deport these illegals over the border into Mexico, we will have transported our problem to Mexico. In addition, this should serve as a great disincentive to all those in Central America who would even think about coming here. This won’t be to the liking of King Barack but who cares? certainly not any patriotic American. This will be good for America, and a win is what every country wants, or should want.
