At least three women and six children were gunned down by Mexican Cartels. Members of two connected families. President Trump has reached out to Mexico, saying America stands ready “to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively.”
What does that mean?
“This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth,” the president concluded. “We merely await a call from your great new president!”

I‘m sure Trump would love to get a shot at the cartels inside Mexico with the full support of the Mexican government. But I’m not picturing Mexico inviting any sizeable force across the border to do battle with cartels. It seems more likely that the US could provide eyes in the sky, precisions strike teams, technical support.
Mexico has been a good neighbor in recent months concerning our immigration enforcement issues. It is blocking its southern border. Sweeping up illegals and deporting them and sending a message that they will no longer be allowed to walk across the country to stand in line at the US Southern Border.
But in the interest of a shared problem, the cartels, something may come together that is mutually beneficial.

Reports have claimed these are Mormons but the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints says it does not recognize this polygamous sect.
