Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard on Sunday vowed to take legal action against the United States after at least three Mexican nationals were killed during Saturday’s shooting at an El Paso Walmart. Of the 26 that were injured, at least nine were Mexican nationals, NBC reported.
According to Ebrard, the shooting was an “act of barbarism,” but the United States failed to protect Mexican citizens.
“The president has instructed me to ensure that Mexico’s indignation translates into … efficient, prompt, expeditious and forceful legal actions for Mexico to take a role and demand that conditions are established that protect … Mexicans in the United States,” Ebrard said in a Twitter video.

In his alleged manifesto, 21-year-old Patrick Wood Cruisus said he was carrying out of his attack because of the illegal immigration invasion that threatens our nation. El Paso is predominantly Hispanic or Latino. (Read more from “Mexico Plans to Take Legal Action Against the U.S. as a Result of El Paso Shooting” HERE)
