O’Reilly outraged: Will call for ‘absolute boycott of Mexico’ if Marine not released by Christmas

Jon Hammar, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R) joined Bill O’Reilly to discuss their outrage about Jon Hammar, the 27 year old  former Marine who is currently being held in a Mexican jail for a “bogus” gun charge.

Hammar’s parents have been pleading for help to get their son released from the dirty prison where he has been held for four months. Bill O’Reilly, along with concerned members of Congress, is publicly taking up the cause for the young American veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. “You are his life [insurance] policy,” Ros-Lehtinen told O’Reilly.

“Mexico is insulting every single American,” the Factor host began. “Release Hammar immediately! Right now!” he demanded of the new Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

The Mexican government is probably going to be  powerless because of the drug lords in the country, Ros-Lehtinen told O’Reilly. They have ceded control to the “gangsters.”

“Are you telling me that the president of Mexico does not have enough power to release this American from that filthy prison in Matamoros ?” O’Reilly asked.

“I believe he doesn’t have the guts to do it,” Ros-Lehtinen answered. “Does he have the authority to do it, yes.”

The Florida congresswoman said that this will be a test for the new Mexican government. “You know this is a country whose leaders – leader after leader- they love to lecture the U.S. on how badly we supposedly treat illegal immigrants. Hogwash!”

Ros-Lehtinen is taking the lead along with the support of other Congressional members in helping this American get home for the holidays.

O’Reilly asked her to verify his assumption the Obama administration was “doing what they should do to help.”

Ros-Lehtinen replied, “I don’t get that feeling, yet.”
