ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Illegal-alien adults, children and gang members are crossing our borders and being welcomed like long-lost brothers and sisters. They are being provided food, clothing and free flights to various cities and towns in the United States. Meanwhile, U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who made a wrong turn at the Mexican border, has been held in a Mexican prison for more than four months.

Illegals invade the United States and are welcomed with open arms, but a U.S. Marine who put his life on the line for our nation sits in a Mexican prison for a driving mistake? President Obama can’t even make a call to Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and tell him to release our Marine or there will be consequences. Mr. Obama is the sympathizer-in-chief for illegal aliens. When will he act as the commander in chief of our armed forces, including Sgt. Tahmooressi?
