"It is inexcusable, it is inexplicable, it is obscene, it is horrific," Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., told Greta Van Susteren about Mexico's treatment of Tahmooressi, who's been languishing in custody since he was arrested in late March after he accidentally drove into the country with three legally purchased guns in his truck.
