On August 26th, Governor Brown will hold the luncheon honoring Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Aug. 26. Instead of accepting an invitation from Gov. Jerry Brown to attend a luncheon honoring the president of Mexico at the governor’s mansion, Assemblyman Tim Donnelly will lead a protest outside the Leland Stanford Museum in support of imprisoned US Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi,
Assemblyman Tim Donnelly was invited to the event, but he delivered a scathing response to Brown on Monday regarding the continued imprisonment of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, which he exclusively shared with WND.
Sgt. Tahmooressi, who served two combat tours of duty in Afghanistan, has been in jail since March after driving near the Mexican border and getting caught in a traffic lane that prevented him from making a U-turn back to the U.S.
He was jailed in Mexico because he was carrying his personal weapons, which although legal in the U.S., are not in Mexico.
Donnelly’s letter states: “I am writing to decline your luncheon invitation, and to express my deep disappointment that you would entertain the president of a nation that is holding an active-duty U.S. Marine captive.”
