Royce and Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) said they have discussed the Tahmooressi case with Mexican Atty. Gen. Jesus Murillo Karam.
Karam suggested he will order the charges dropped if Tahmooressi's PTSD is confirmed by Mexican psychologists, the two congressmen told a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere.
Several members of Congress criticized President Obama for not calling the president of Mexico to ask him to free Tahmooressi.
"I would say: 'Mr. President, we have a man down. Pick up a phone and do your job,'" said Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.).

Can we find a timeline of how long it took for him to call 911 after he crossed?
In a story headlined "Ex-Marine did not enter Mexico by mistake," Ines Garcia Ramos reported that around 10:30 p.m. on March 31, as Tahmooressi began to drive into Mexico, border officers who noticed a mattress and other large items in his truck waved him over to an inspection area, where his weapons were discovered during a search. Contrary to his assertion that he stopped to ask how to return to the U.S., she wrote, he appeared to be driving away from the border. (After his guns were discovered, he called 911, telling an American operator he had crossed the border "by accident ... and they're trying to take my guns from me.")

Still don't understand..why when a foreigner breaks American laws....they must be enforced at all costs.
An American breaks another countries laws...give them a break.
Hypocrisy at it's best.
