Congressmen Urge Kerry to Secure Release of Iraq War Vet in Mexico

Was kidnapped a month ago


Twelve Congressional representatives are urging Secretary of State John Kerry to assist in bringing home Iraq Marine Corps veteran Armando Torres, who was allegedly kidnapped in Mexico roughly a month ago.

The group of representatives led by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fl) and Ruben Hinojosa (D-TX) sent a letter June 7 directly to Kerry, asking that the government "devote the maximum amount of resources" available to ensure that Torres is rescued safely.
