Please go to in upper right click on contact federal legislators and you can email president and your legislators with one email.
Please take 5 minutes to let Obama, Senators and Reps know that we want them to get busy and have Jon out of Mexico now. They need to contact the Mexican government and bring pressure to get him released. It is such bs that he remain jailed all this time.

My senator sent me an email telling me what all the family is doing and assures me that if they feel it is necessary--the senate will step in.

I could just punch him in the head. I feel it is necessary or I wouldn't have asked him, Obama, and Tim Ryan to get involved.

Politicians just hear and read what they want to, it seems.

Heck, the prison where Mr Hammar is being held is only 15 miles south of the border.. send in the SEALS to extract him. That will send a message... will it not?
