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.

Mexico Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard released a video on Sunday.

NBC translates:

“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?
