Rep. Adam Smith writes to John Kerry urging him to take action on Nestora’s case

Congressman Adam Smith (WA-09) sent a letter, cosigned by Democratic Members of the Washington State delegation, urging Secretary Kerry to take action in Nestora Salgado’s case.

This also marks the first time that state Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell have taken action on the issue, as well as others who signed the letter, Representatives Suzan DelBene, Jim McDermott, Rick Larsen, Denny Heck, Derek Kilmer, and Juan Vargas.

Among other things, the letter said “We urge you to employ the resources of the State Department to continue efforts to secure Ms. Salgado’s release. The authorities in the State of Guerrero have not demonstrated a concern for her well-being, nor have they carried out the due process of law afforded to Ms. Salgado.”
