Senator Ben Sasse Just Issued a Terrifying Warning About Mexico

After the murder of nine American women and children in Mexico by vicious drug cartels yesterday, Republican Senator Ben Sasse is sending a warning about the state of the country and its government. 

“Drug cartels ambushed an innocent family on their way to a wedding and massacred nine Americans, including babies. The hard truth is that Mexico is dangerously close to being a failed state. This is what happens when Mexico’s politicians look the other way and let drug cartels bribe their way to power. Enough," Sasse released in a statement. "Mexico’s president hasn’t taken the threat seriously and innocent American lives have been lost again. The Mexican government must partner with U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies to wage a full-scale offensive against these butchers.”

A near failed state that shares a 2000-mile long border with the United States...quite the statement.  

On Tuesday morning, President Trump offered Mexico assistance with the elimination of drug cartels wreaking havoc on local communities. 

The problem? Mexican cartels control the government through corruption, bribes and threats of violence. Just two weeks ago 14-police officers were murdered in Mexico. The LA Times reports it was a "test" on the Mexican President's security. 

A police convoy was passing through a small town in western Mexico on Monday morning when bullets began to fly. It was an ambush by one of Mexico’s most violent criminal groups.

In a matter of minutes, 14 police officers were killed and several of their vehicles set on fire. Handwritten messages left at the scene were signed “CJNG” — short for the Jalisco New Generation Cartel — and accused the police of working with rival groups.

The assault in El Aguaje in the state of Michoacan was the latest in a series of spectacular high-casualty attacks attributed to the cartel, one of Mexico’s most ascendant and audacious criminal organizations.

Meanwhile, the Trump administration remains focused on securing the U.S. southern border with Mexico.
