Rep. Matt Salmon says a Marine veteran who has been in a Mexico prison on weapons charges is doing well.

The Arizona Republican said he was able to visit Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi on Saturday at el Hongo II prison in Tijuana and the 25-year-old seemed in good spirits.

The congressman says he is confident Tahmooressi will be treated respectfully.

Tahmooressi was headed to dinner in San Ysidro, Calif., on March 31 when he mistakenly wound up at a border-crossing point in Tijuana.

According to Tahmooressi, Mexican authorities found three legally owned guns in his truck.

Meanwhile, KTVK-TV reports  Tahomooressi's friends and family held a rally Saturday morning in Phoenix outside the offices of Republican Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake.

They are asking lawmakers to help get Tahomooressi released.
