One sidebit to the story caught my attention:
Philip Holloway, former U.S. Navy JAG and current criminal defense attorney told Foxnews.com arrests like Tahmooressi happen frequently in San Diego and in Texas, where active-duty service members cross the border without knowing they are actually in Mexico...
Holloway says on a recent trip to Mexico, he was told about the difficulties Americans can face dealing with the country’s law enforcement.
“We were told that if we found ourselves inside a Mexican jail that we might be there for a very long time,” Holloway said. “Mexico tends to want to remind the United States that it is a sovereign entity and it’s very willing to enforce its own laws.”
Uh, isn't this the same country that protests every time we try to enforce our laws in regards to their citizens here illegally?
