Mexico threatens to sue the US for failing to protect its citizens after El Paso mass shooting

Mexico wants to sue the United States for failing to protect its citizens after this weekend’s mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, which left 20 people dead, including seven Mexican nationals.

Mexico Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard called the shooting “an act of terrorism” against Mexicans and urged the US government to establish a “clear and convincing position against hate crimes.”

Seven Mexicans were killed and another seven of the country’s citizens were among the dozens wounded, Mexican officials said Sunday.

The mass shooting on Saturday at a Walmart at the Cielo Vista Mall also left 26 people injured, including 7 who were also Mexican citizens

Other victims may have also been of Mexican descent, while one man who had traveled to El Paso from Mexico to buy school supplies for his daughter was among those severely wounded.

“Mexico is outraged,” Ebrard said in a video posted on Twitter, calling the shooting an “act of barbarism.”

Ebrard used the video to threaten legal action against the US after the mass shooting on Saturday at a Walmart at the Cielo Vista Mall. In addition to the dead, 26 people were also wounded.

Ebrard said Mexico condemned the shooting and called it an “act of barbarism.”

El Paso sits on the border across from the Mexican city of Juarez. Both U.S. and Mexican citizens travel frequently between both sides for business, pleasure and tourism.  

Authorities are investigating a hate-filled, anti-immigrant manifesto that was posted online just minutes before the mass shooting.

 The post mentioned the “hispanic invasion of Texas.” 

The manifesto also offered a plan for carving up America into territories by race, and warned that whites are being replaced by foreigners.
