Rep. Peters' Statement on the Release of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi

SAN DIEGO – This evening, Congressman Scott Peters released the following statement on the ruling by a Mexican Judge to immediately release Andrew Tahmooressi:

"I am pleased that a judge has ruled for Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi to be released; this will certainly come as a welcome relief for his family and friends. Over the last few months I have been working with officials in the United States Department of State and Mexican Government officials, and met with the Mexican Ambassador to the United States, to ensure Andrew's safety and a fair and expedited process for his release. Thankfully Andrew is now coming home and can get the care he has earned through his service to our country."
