Washington, D.C. — Representative Duncan Hunter responded to confirmed reports that U.S. citizen and Marine veteran Jon Hammar will be released from prison in Mexico, saying, "I’m glad better sense prevailed in Mexico and there’s now a plan in place for Jon Hammar’s release.  It’s unfortunate that Jon and his family had to endure this situation, but the issue is only resolved when he steps foot back on American soil."

Yesterday, Representative Hunter called on all Americans to boycott travel to Mexico until Hammar’s release.
