EL PASO – Mexico’s foreign minister visited this border city Monday to offer condolences and condemn the mass shooting that claimed the lives of 22 people, including eight Mexican citizens.
“We consider this to be an act of terror, obviously on U.S. territory, but against Mexican citizens,” Marcelo Ebrard said during a news conference at the Mexican Consulate in El Paso. “We want to express our condolences to El Paso, to the United States and each family” who suffered from the tragedy.
During his stop in El Paso, Ebrard visited six patients from Mexico who remain hospitalized with wounds they suffered when a gunman went on a shooting rampage at a busy Walmart on Saturday morning.
