    If President Obama traded 5 terrorists to release Berdahl from Afghanistan

    thenwhy  won't Obama trade a few thousand illegal Mexicans residing in the US for the release of the imprisoned marine Tahmooressi?

    Wonderful question! The tragic truth is Mexico isn't interested in having those few thousand citizens back. The country is run by a relatively few wealthy elitists that are content with maintaining a low number of working-class citizens to run their few money-making enterprises and staff the hospitality services for tourists. The less non-elitists there are to provide for, the wealthier the elitists become. Keeping Tahmooressi in prison makes their gov't look tough, but it is a bogus perception. The Mexican President devotes more time to denouncing Americans for their "racism" than he does at expending the effort to corral the elitist corruption which keeps his citizens impoverished and looking for a better life. And it is a convenient time for him to criticize Americans for their "racism". Both leading U.S. political parties are eager to convert illegals into certified voters and he and the Mexican gov't know it.

    He broke a law in their country. Expecting them to just let him go makes no sense and would be no different than if they demanded we let go a Mexican who committed a crime here.

      junk--We do that every day and they keep coming back to commit more crime, by the thousands. You not not seem to be well informed, is that by choice?

      Thousands of Mexicans have broken U.S. immigration laws, not to mention child endangerment laws via deliberate human trafficking. But Mexico is not going to demand these lawbreakers back and we all know it.

      If such a demand were made, we would consider it absurd, because it is absurd and it is absurd in either direction.

      The world is full of absurdity.

    Because Tahmooressi is not a deserter, but a decorated marine. Trading illegals back to Mexico is not in the best interest of Mexico, but returning top level commanders was in the best interest of our enemy. It was an insult to the men who served with Bergdahl, the men who died looking for him, an insult to everyone who has ever worn a uniform or served in combat. It is an insult to the American people and to the Constitution. And, as far as I am concerned it was an act of treason.
    Obama and Holder pay homage to a thug killed by a police officer, offers 5 minutes to an American, who proudly died, as an American and scurries back to play golf.. The Pope offers more in his eulogy of this man than the president of the United States.
    Obama may or may not have been born in the United States, but he is, most assuredly, not an American. Benedict Arnold was closer to being an American than Obama.
    Was that to strong?

    They would most likely agree to release the Marine if we would take a few million more of their poor and starving with no questions asked.  Oh wait, we are already doing that.
