On Sunday, a Mexico official told the media that the country planned on suing the United States over the El Paso massacre.
That’s rich coming from one of the most violent nations in the world. Most nations send condolences, Mexico a lawsuit. That’s funny. Will the U.S., in turn, sue Mexico for all the drugs and killers who have come here from Mexico?
This is why I laugh whenever anyone calls Mexico a friend to the US.
Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico’s Foreign Minister, expressed his “indignation” for Saturday’s shooting, which he referred to as a “barbarous” act, and said his government would be taking action to protect its citizens living in the United States.
The president of the Republic has instructed me so that this posture and indignation from Mexico is translated, first in protecting affected families, and then in legal actions, efficient and prompt, quick and convincing so that Mexico can demand the conditions to protect the Mexican-American community and Mexicans in the United States,” he said.
Ebrard offered no additional details in the short video. But he said that a formal announcement of the legal actions the nation will take would come later in the day.
“What happened is inadmissible and today (Sunday), at 4 p.m., we will announce the first judicial actions that the Mexican government will take in accordance to international law,” he added. [AZ Central]

The shooting occurred at the Cielo Vista Mall, which is located about a 20-minute drive from the main port of entry on the U.S.-Mexico border.
According to reports, three at least three Mexican nationals were killed and nine were injured that also left 20 dead. Mexico officials claim El Paso is home for more than a thousand Mexican nationals that commute from Mexico to work in the United States on a daily basis.
