jabin bogan and mother

Jabin Bogan, 27, seated with his mother, Aletha Smith, is quite emotional about his recent release.

*There has to be more protection for U.S. citizens when they cross the borders into other countries.

There should never be a time when we cross a border and are incarcerated simply for making a wrong turn and carrying the wrong thing.

Jabin Bogan, 27,now knows too well how unprotected American citizens are in Mexico. They were able to hold him in jail even though he told them that he was transporting ammunition for his company.

But it didn’t matter, they were going for the jugular because of a simple mistake they wanted to use to send a message.

According to the New York Daily News, Bogan got off on the wrong exit in El Paso, Texas, and ended up in Mexico.

He may have been able to do a U-turn and get out of there unscathed if he wasn’t transporting ammunition.
