NBC News reports that Mexico (yes, the nation of Mexico) is threatening to take legal action against the United States because at least three of the people killed in Saturday’s shooting at an El Paso, Texas Walmart were 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 video posted on Twitter.

Do they really want to go down this road?
Look, we actually believe in law and order and want to hang this guy. But you guys? It would take a PHD in math to figure out how many Americans (on OUR soil) have been killed by Mexican nationals, from gangs, cartels, and drugs. Stay in your lane and let us deal with it. https://t.co/X9ihMoUGy8

Maybe Mexico should protect its citizens by not letting them cross into the United States illegally https://t.co/8F5QKM4Gj8
