Today Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) fired back at the Mexican Ambassador’s letter blaming Americans for the crimes of the cartels and the flow of drugs over the southern border. He stands by his call yesterday for sanctions against Mexican officials who will not confront cartels.
In response to my call for sanctions, yesterday the Mexican Ambassador responded w/ letter taking zero responsibility, offering no change in Mexico’s failed policies, & suggesting real problem is Americans’ “drug demand.” As if Americans are responsible for the cartels’ crimes pic.twitter.com/zo0jl7u2kG— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) November 7, 2019
I remind the government of Mexico that their cartels are murdering American citizens, and trafficking children, and flooding our communities w/ deadly drugs. So yes, I do believe sanctions are warranted for those who refuse to take action— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) November 7, 2019
