SAN DIEGO (AP) — A Mexican judge ordered the immediate release of a jailed U.S. Marine veteran who spent eight months behind bars for crossing the border with loaded guns.

The judge on Friday called for retired Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi (Tah-mor-EE-si) to be freed because of his mental state and did not make a determination on the illegal arms charges against the Afghanistan veteran diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, according to a Mexican official who had knowledge of the ruling but was not authorized to give his name.

Tahmooressi has said he took a wrong turn on a California freeway that funneled him into a Tijuana port of entry with no way to turn back. His detention brought calls for his freedom from U.S. politicians, veterans groups and social media campaigns.

“It is with an overwhelming and humbling feeling of relief that we confirm that Andrew was released today after spending 214 days in Mexican Jail,” the family said in a statement.

U.S. Republican and Democratic politicians had held talks with Mexican authorities to urge his release. A U.S. congressional committee also held a public hearing to pressure Mexico to free him.

U.S. Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said he was “elated” by the news and that his PTSD will be treated by specialists in the United States. He had met with Tahmooressi in jail and talked to Mexico’s Jesus Murillo Karam about the case.

“As I said after visiting Andrew in the Mexican jail, he needs to come home to the United States to be with his mother Jill and the support network of friends I know to be standing by to help him. He is a hero who served his country bravely on the battlefields of Afghanistan, which is why so many Americans have been focused on getting him home,” Royce said.

  1. Out Frickin Standing! What a great outcome. Excellent!

  2. Wonderful news!
    Steve’s title for this post is so true: “No thanks to Obama.” Neither is Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi’s release due to any efforts made by the supposed U.S. attorney general Eric Holder. Both Obama and Holder were happy to have the Marine rot in that Mexican jail.

    • “Both Obama and Holder were happy to have the Marine rot in that Mexican jail.”
      Bingo! But how long do you suppose it will be before some liberal stenographer…. errmmm, “reporter”, gives the imposter credit for the sergeant’s release?
      I can see it now, they’ll claim that it was his great patience, his courageous restraint in the face of public pressure, that won Sgt. Tahmooressi’s freedom.

  3. I saw that and threw it up. No time for funny .gifs.
    Just awesome news and Eo you’re right that pig wouldn’t lift a damn finger.

  4. U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., also applauded his release.
    “As a mother, my heart is with Jill Tahmooressi tonight and I can only imagine the many emotions she must be experiencing, namely the relief in knowing her son is coming home and that they will soon be reunited without prison bars, without handlers and without unnecessary travel,” Wasserman Schultz said. “It is my hope that Andrew can transition back to life in the U.S. after this ordeal as soon as possible, including securing the treatment he needs for his post-traumatic stress disorder and being honored for his service to our nation.
    I thought she aborted or ate her young

  5. YEA!!! Thank God, finally. 🎉🎈As for that worthless POS we have squatting in our White House, karma is a bit-h, hope it comes back to him in spades.

  6. Steve, you did a great job in bringing us this most joyous news. I hope that this young man can get the help he needs to get on with his life. In most cases, I don’t think highly of Mexican officials–but they really did the right thing in this instance, even if it was 213 days late!

  7. Reblogged this on On the Patio with BzeroB and commented:
    This is awesome! It was predicted that he would be home for Christmas and it is true. I like it

  8. Most excellent news!

  9. Obama has been, in the words of Burt Lancaster in “Seven Days in May,” a “CRIMINALLY WEAK SISTER!” and has done everything imaginable to destroy the morale of our Armed Forces.
    But let’s take a look at what other Presidents have done. Lyndon Johnson lied to the American people to get us into war in Viet Nam, George H.W. Bush lied to get us into a police action in Kuwait, Clinton bombed every bridge on the River Danube in Serbia, allowing Muslims to gain a foothold on the European mainland, and George W. Bush lied to get us into TWO wars.
    Our entire government is criminally incompetent and corrupt! Obama is the New World Order’s latest abomination!
    They are within sight of their goal, which is to BRING DOWN this Republic. And Obama is very adolescently flippant about it. We need an entirely new crew in Washington, and I believe that the military is the only force that can bring about the desired result.

  10. I smell election ploy.
    SS deposits hit last night, as well, and that doesn’t usually happen unless the 3rd falls on a holiday or a Sunday.
    LOL – I guess the dems are trying to eek out a few more votes come Tuesday.

  11. Thank God! I am very relieved to see this. Thanks for the report, Steve.

  12. I didn’t see obama have his parents at the White House
