Investigators are trying to piece together a horrific ambush on Monday in Northern Mexico. More than twenty people were driving to a wedding when they were stopped and shot. The Utah family is part of a community of Mormons living in Mexico.
“At least nine U.S. citizens, including six children, were killed in a massacre in the Mexican border state of Sonora Monday, a relative to many of the victims told NBC News.
The dead included 8-month-old twins, said the family member, Kendra Lee Miller. Some of the eight survivors, all of whom are children, sustained serious injuries. Miller said a 9-month-old child was shot in the chest and a 4-year-old was shot in the back.”
Vice says, “It was not clear if the family, which has spoken out against cartels, was targeted, or if it was a case of mistaken identity.” But Donald Trump is telling a different story on Twitter.
….monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively. The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!
