There is a family that needs help. A mother of seven is being held in a Mexican jail because she didn’t pay the expected bribe for a trumped-up charge of smuggling marijuana.
Ever quick to use the bully pulpit for his agenda items, our President is lying low executing his constitutionally mandated responsibility. Ever quick to embarrass Republicans, he is all too reluctant to give Mexico’s President, Enrique Peña Nieto, the same treatment on behalf of this American citizen.
Ditto for our new Secretary of State John Kerry (who served in Vietnam).
Why the bus driver or any of the other passengers on that bus was not arrested, or at least questioned, is one thing. But to arrest the only Americans that were on the bus, when there were witnesses that said that Yanira got on the bus carrying only a purse, is enough reason to demand her release.
There is only one man proven to be bold enough to do what needs to be done, Dennis Rodman, our shadow Secretary of State and Ambassador of Culture. Mr. Rodman, your next mission is a junket to one of the most dangerous countries in the world, Mexico, to seek the release of Yanira Maldonado held in a Mexican jail.
Tell Mexican President Enrique Peña Nietoto, “do me a solid and cut Yanira Maldonado loose.”
