HERMOSILLO — In the wake of a horrific attack against a Mormon community in Sonora, the U.S. ambassador to Mexico promised a strong, binational response.
Ambassador Christopher Landau opened his remarks at the Arizona-Mexico Commission meeting in Sonora sharing his condolences with the families of the nine women and children murdered Monday.
“These were people of the border,” he said. “They were U.S. citizens that lived in Mexico. They had a foot on both sides of the border.”
“That fact highlights the challenge that both countries have,” he added. “Of combating crime, organized crime, together. It’s not something just one of us.”
