Two days after the attack that left nine dead of the LeBarón family, including six children, in the limits of Sonora and Chihuahua, the president of the United States, Donald Trump, argued on Wednesday that the massacre of the members of the Mormon community demonstrates that he is right in the need to build a wall on the common border.RELATED
"When you see what is happening on the other side of the border, people are beginning to say 'maybe he is right about the wall, maybe he is right about the need to have a very strong border" https: //www.milenio. com / "Trump said during a speech at the White House on judicial issues." The other side (the Democrats) wants open borders that bring a huge crime, and many people have told me that in the last couple of days, that they have started to understand the border issue, "the president added.
Trump thus made a veiled reference to this Monday's murder of nine people, including six children, of dual US and Mexican nationality on a highway in Sonora that borders the United States and also the state of Chihuahua.
After learning about the aggression, on Tuesday Trump offered his military help to Mexico to start a "war" against the cartels.
President Andrés Manuel López Obrador responded by appealing to national "sovereignty", although he thanked any cooperation that could occur "within the framework of current international legality and bilateral agreements."
Mexican authorities reported on Wednesday that it was the La Línea cartel who allegedly perpetrated the Mormon aggression and that this event would be connected with an armed clash with rivals of the Los Salazar criminal organization in which detonations of firearms were reported and burning vehicles.
Trump's electoral promise to build a wall on the border with Mexico has generated tensions in the bilateral relationship in the last two years, especially due to the insistence of the US president that the neighboring country should assume the bill of the project.
After more than a year of advancing the Trump project only by renewing existing fences in the border area, the US began in October to build a first stretch of new wall in the Rio Grande Valley region in Texas, according to The Customs and Border Protection Office (CBP) told CNN.
