MEXICO CITY – Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said on Sunday that Mexico will take legal actions to protect its citizens in the United States, following a shooting in El Paso, Texas, that left 20 dead, including three Mexicans.
“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 video posted on Twitter.
Ebrard said he would provide further details at a news conference on Sunday afternoon in Mexico City.
He also said the number of Mexicans who were injured in the attack has risen to nine.
