The highway where the attack took place is deemed high risk. It covers an area where criminal organizations like the Gulf Cartel and Zetas are heavily active in.

State Department officials issued the following statement:

“We can confirm that one U.S. citizen was killed, and two U.S. citizens injured, in an attack in Tamaulipas, Mexico on January 4. We offer our sincerest condolences to the family on their loss, and we are providing them all appropriate consular assistance. We are closely monitoring local authorities’ investigation into this brutal attack. Out of respect for the family’s privacy, we have no further comment at this time.”

Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin commented on Twitter:

“Another day, another ambush, another American family snuffed out on the southern border. Let’s send thousands of extra American troops to the Middle East!”

The violence in Mexico is getting out of hand.

What is taking place in Mexico is no longer random acts of violence involving conventional firearms. A shootout in Culiacan back in October witnessed heavily-armed cartel gunmen overpower the Mexican government. They were able to take drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán’s son in the process.

Shortly afterward, an American family of nine fell victim to a brutal cartel attack.

It has become abundantly clear that Mexico is a failed state.

The U.S. will need to shift its security priorities by pulling out of the Middle East and building strong fortifications along the Southern border to prevent Mexico’s dysfunction from spilling over into America.
