Thanks so it is a Bill O'Reilly and -- Kelly file segment tonight we have a lot to talk about beginning with the terrible ordeal of 27 year old John hammer.
He is a former marine Lance corporal from Florida now incarcerated in Mexico.
Mexicans put him in prison after he registered an antique gun with the US Border Patrol.
Then he crossed into Mexico.
Apparently the Mexican authorities saw the paperwork and immediately arrested corporal hammer on gun charges I was four months ago -- he's still on -- Senator Bill Nelson from Florida said this.

And now the Mexicans say that's it you're going to -- immediately in jail.
Here's the irony about OK so what is our State Department done well -- made a few phone calls.
The parents are very upset that the US consulate hasn't done more but really typically the way these workers -- State Department calls their State Department and then it -- -- -- aligned delegates and local police and they say.
They'll be ridiculous this isn't one of those situations where somebody goes hiking over and then it accidentally crosses into Iran.
This well that's.
Barnes well -- here's what's illegal and that hundreds of millions of dollar one year bill but he isn't isn't the phone call let's be honest.
They disrespect us all the time Mexico all the time.

We haven't seen any sign of that number two -- Obama should be involved we haven't seen any sign of that number three the new Mexican president Ito I think his name is all right.
There's no way that this guy should let this marine out tomorrow Christmas is coming up.
We call -- Mexican embassy today -- those people are totally chaotic very busy they don't know what the hell's going on they don't care all right so I think now we have to squeeze.

And Mexican embassy again now we -- you all day long comment you're hiding you can't continue to hide and Hillary Clinton you -- -- You gotta get involved -- right -- and the secretary you gotta get involved that's it and President Obama has again -- he bought this is a marine corporal.

From the jail and they tried to extort thousands of dollar of course that's what they haven't haven't moved to solitary that's what they did she had no right to -- if the parents that are 810 -- is probably could have got -- And change in a -- -- we were able to stop that from happening up.
Enough is enough are right -- senator Bob Menendez -- -- he apparently had an immigrant.
Who is in the country an immigrant in the intern yet who's in the country illegally.
