Was arrested for bringing an antique shotgun which was approved by US customs across the border.
Now conditions are deteriorating as he remains chain to a bed.
Now it's time for government officials in both Mexico and the US to step up to plate.
And get him home now Enrique Pena the -- is the president of Mexico he has -- power to free hammer immediately some other way -- to president Barack Obama.
However his administration continues to -- -- hammer family in fact.
His Press Secretary said he didn't even know about the case and according to -- mom and dad the State Department has refused to help their -- so tonight right here and Hannity.
We've got to demand something be done to help this American hero it's time to bring hammer home for the holidays.
And earlier today US marine he -- that make done who was arrested with hammer well he did the same thing -- some of the us.
Please -- we can think people are North Korea and seeing reporters all over the world and going back up being higher risk the world.
We bring one of our own.
Just one just one guy who's not even.
Miles from the border.
It was reaction to -- of the five Kimberly Guilfoyle and Arab bullying and you know I had a failing on this program.
They've been trying for months he's been there since August and let me play for you would Jay Carney said I didn't even know about this this is December.
And they didn't know that and Iraq and Afghanistan war hero was even impressed watch this.
We don't know all the facts of the.
Jason what what he -- what he didn't do.
But it's been accessible way -- looking -- is there -- going on to ascertain the facts to see whether he's innocent or not again we don't know what really happened.
Well I'll have to take the question is I don't I I don't know the facts myself on sought to take the question.
React pitiful really to be honest with you and it's this unconscionable how can we allow someone who.
Didn't do anything wrong was going by the book actually went up to try to register the weapon -- -- declare it.
And he's been detained because what they wanted to do was extort his family for money on the -- -- that's the truth but nevertheless we're allowing this injustice -- to continue on.
He should be home for the holidays but this gambling.
Why is it that the administration didn't know about it why is that Jay Carney was -- prepared.
To answer a question about an American chain to a bed in Mexico we have leverage.
Over Mexico and you should be used and it should be -- -- -- right now.
-- that there -- two points here in the first one is he did everything right -- -- -- and a Winnebago.
He went to US customs he volunteered told -- he had the weapon -- and it's his grandfather shotgun.
They said fine you go across the border declare it and you'll be fine that's what the rules are -- apparently the only one who can bring guns across the borders are colder with festive spirits.
The bottom line is I will tell you right now.
That President Obama could get on the stage and say.
-- in front of the podium presidential -- put the seal there and say listen in Mexico time to release our man get him back right now.
We're doing one Rush Limbaugh made a comment about -- -- The next day eight -- Obama is out there defending send a flock great points gap where is he won a marine is -- to a bed in Mexico.
-- Number one that most.
That the group that country we buy most of our -- from.
Canada Mexico Mexico if you don't want to do this may do we have to rethink who were buying all it would take as you know you're right.
All it would take Kimberly go to the podium and say could we have this guy sent home plants.
And I don't think it would take point.
Now -- -- request because like I said we have economic leverage to be able to exert pressure on Mexico and it should be utilized his otherwise is -- sending the wrong message to everyone that it's okay to keep and -- Americans against well for a crime that they did not commit.
What is the message -- that doesn't make Americans three and safe when they travel outside of this country and especially with Mexico.
They need -- and financially independent on and the many ways in the point the.
You may Sean is that he could literally -- crazy mr.
hammer declared the gun on the US side.
And said I have this done it was like he's trying to hide anything -- the -- through the border I had pace and take the gun and the paperwork that you had.
And bring it over to Mexico if nothing else our Border Patrol could say look.
Come on guys we thought it was OK we sent them to you there's so many reasons why this guy should be out -- President Bush and Dick Cheney would not.
Have to say what I have to -- would -- -- they would already be home that's an immediate that's the honest chance juxtaposition between the two administration the irony too is you know we're having this big debate in the country over guns and you guys have been debating it on the five.
And when we find out this week is that another.
Gun from fast and furious when you mentioned Eric showed up at a -- site where murder took place currency in another crime scene.
-- our government for all talk about guns they gave guns to.
Kidnappers gangsters murderous drug dealers and no outrage from the very people now the demanding.
You know -- America deal with a gun issue we we have.
We have the opportunity to bring a marine back right now.
Now there are those on the left to sell you but there are thousands of people when Mexican -- about Americans in.
