Six Mexicans (nationals) were among those murdered in the El Paso, Texas mass shooting on Saturday (August 3), and now the President of Mexico is taking legal measures to protect others in the U.S.
Additionally, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador stated, “I asked [Foreign Minister] Marcelo Ebrard that in spite of the pain, we act responsibly. “
While the country’s consulate is working with the victim’s families to prosecute those responsible for selling the weapon, Ebrard adds, “This will mark the first time that Mexico condemns an act of the kind as terrorism.”
In addition, they state that the country’s “indignation” will translate into effective and expedited legal action, resulting in protection for Mexicans.
