According to Reuters, Mexico's Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard made a major declaration following a shooting in El Paso, Texas, that left 20 dead, including six Mexicans. Ebrard said on Sunday that Mexico will take legal actions to protect its citizens in the United States, though he was unclear what those legal actions would be.
"The president has instructed me to ensure that Mexico's indignation translates into... efficient, prompt, expeditious and forceful legal actions for Mexico to take a role and demand that conditions are established that protect... Mexicans in the United States," Ebrard said in a video posted on Twitter.
During a Sunday press conference, Ebrard also said the country was considering requesting that the U.S. extradite the suspect to be tried in Mexico on terrorism charges.

Trump: "Hate has no place in our country"
President Trump gave a short statement at 4:35 p.m. Sunday after stepping off Marine One in Morristown, New Jersey. First lady Melania Trump was by his side when he spoke to reporters present at the airfield.
"I just want to thank the law enforcement in both places. The job they've done is incredible," Mr. Trump said. "I also want to congratulate them nobody could have done what they done. As bad as it was it also could've been so much worse.
"Think of the damage he did in such a short period of time in less than a minute?" Mr. Trump wondered aloud.
Mr. Trump referenced the citizens of both El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, in his remarks.
"These are two incredible places. We love the people. Hate has no place in our country. And we're gonna take care of it."
Mr. Trump said he spoke with Attorney General Bill Barr, FBI Director Christopher Wray, the governors of both Texas and Ohio and members of Congress. He said he will be working with authorities in the coming days.
"We have to get it stopped. This has been going for years. For years and years and we have to get it stopped," Mr. Trump said. "Perhaps more has to be done. This is also a mental illness problem. These are people who are very, very seriously mentally ill."
Ohio shooting suspect "neutralized" within 30 seconds by police; weapon had 100 round-drum magazine
Chief Richard Biehl of Dayton Ohio Police Department spoke at a 4 p.m. press conference from Dayton, Ohio, on Sunday afternoon. Biehl said officers advanced at the suspect within 20 seconds of his firing the first shots and that "the threat was neutralized within 30 seconds of suspect firing first shots."
Biehl confirmed the gunman, 24-year-old Connor Betts, was wearing a mask, bulletproof vest and hearing protection with an assault weapon that carried a 100-round drum magazine.
Connor Betts was killed by police. Biehl said, "there's nothing in this individual's record or history that would've precluded him from purchasing this firearm."
Officials played a 911 call and a video taken on East 5th Street that showed people reacting to the shooting. A slideshow showed Betts' initial route through the Oregon District of Dayton, Ohio. Biehl showed surveillance videos that included graphic content.
When asked for a motive, Biehl said, "We do not have answers at this time," adding, "We have a lot of evidence to process through."
"Shocking, shocking, and unspeakable"
Ohio's two senators, Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman, each spoke at an afternoon press conference. Both Brown and Portman said the quick action by first responders on the scene in the Oregon District saved possibly hundreds of lives.
"This is obviously a terribly difficult time for this community," Brown said on Sunday. "My first response, of course, is sadness. My next thought is anger at our country, society and Congress for not doing anything about this."
Brown said the House of Representatives has passed a bipartisan bill that would require background checks on gun sales. He pointed the finger at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for not bringing the bill to the floor of the Senate for a vote. Brown said it is a bill that President Trump could sign "in one day."
Portman called the mass shooting "shocking, shocking and unspeakable."
"Are there more things that could be done? I'm sure there are," Portman said, pointing to suicide rates and addiction rates in Ohio, as well as mental health issues. "There aren't enough laws, and no law can correct some of the fundamental cultural problems we face as a country."
"How can someone pull a gun at someone he had never seen or known and pull the trigger?" Portman asked, seemingly in disbelief.

Prosecutors will seek death penalty for El Paso shooting
El Paso District Attorney Jaime Esparza announced Sunday that prosecutors will seek the death penalty for Patrick Crusius, the suspect of the El Paso mass shooting.
"Very difficult time for our community. Certainly with a heavy heart that I talk to you," Esparza said in a news conference with police and FBI officials. "We will proceed with the investigation, the state charge is capital murder, the suspect is eligible for the death penalty, and we will seek the death penalty."
An FBI official at the news conference said they will pursue a criminal investigation, a civil rights hate crime investigation and domestic terrorism charges.
"We are treating it as domestic terrorism," the FBI official said, saying the shooting carried the "intent to intimidate the domestic population."
El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen said Crusius purchased his weapon legally. Allen also said that police are beginning to remove bodies from the scene at the Walmart in El Paso.
"We are a very safe community, we pride ourselves on the fact that we are so safe. This county is rocked, shocked, and saddened by what has happened here," Esparza added. "We will hold [Crusius] accountable."
Dayton gunman used assault-style rifle
Dayton police said the gunman used a .223 caliber, assault-style weapon with high capacity magazines. Police have not been able to determine if the shooting was a hate crime but said all the fatalities occurred outside the bar and entertainment area in the Oregon District.
Twenty-seven people were being treated at the Miami Valley Hospital and Kettering Health Network. Fifteen others were discharged. Officials said they were grateful for supporters from the American Red Cross and the community blood bank who have offered assistance.
Beto O'Rourke says Trump's rhetoric "has a lot to do" with El Paso shooting
Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke, one of the two dozen Democrats vying for the party's presidential nomination, drew a direct link between President Trump's divisive rhetoric on immigration and the apparent motives of the young white man suspected of killing at least 20 people in El Paso on Saturday.
"President Trump has a lot to do with what happened in El Paso yesterday," O'Rourke, who used to represent El Paso in Congress, said on "Face the Nation" Sunday.
"Anybody who begins their campaign for the presidency by calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals; anyone who, as president, describes asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border as an infestation or an invasion or animals; anyone who describes those who do not match the majority of this country as somehow inherently dangerous or defective; sows the kinds of fear, the kind of reaction that we saw in El Paso yesterday," he added.
But O'Rourke also said the massacre highlights a pressing nationwide problem that is "larger than" and predates Mr. Trump's rhetoric.
"It's up to all of us to put an end to this racism and make sure that we just don't tolerate our differences but -- as we've shown here in El Paso -- we embrace them as the very source of our strength and our success," he added. "And, yes, also our safety and our security."

Dayton shooting suspect identified
Law enforcement sources told CBS News the shooter was identified as 24-year-old Connor Betts, of Bellbrook, Ohio. The sources said police were searching his house on Sunday morning.
"Words can't describe it"
The shooting took place outside, on the 400 block of East 5th Street. Nikita Papillon, 23, was across the street at Newcom's Tavern when the shooting started.
She said she saw a girl she had talked to earlier lying outside Ned Peppers Bar. "She had told me she liked my outfit and thought I was cute, and I told her I liked her outfit and I thought she was cute," Papillon said.
She herself had been to Ned Peppers the night before, describing it as the kind of place "where you don't have to worry about someone shooting up the place."
"People my age, we don't think something like this is going to happen," she said. "And when it happens, words can't describe it."
Tianycia Leonard, 28, was in the back, smoking, at Newcom's. She heard "loud thumps" that she initially thought was people pounding on a dumpster.
"It was so noisy, but then you could tell it was gunshots and there was a lot of rounds," Leonard said. The FBI is assisting with the investigation.
A family assistance center was set up at the Dayton Convention Center.
Officials "heartbroken" over shooting
"I'm heartbroken," Whaley tweeted around 6 a.m. Sunday, thanking first responders for their efforts. Gov. Mike DeWine issued his own statement before 7 a.m., announcing that he's ordered flags in Ohio remain at half-mast and offered assistance to Whaley.
"Fran and I are absolutely heartbroken over the horrible attack that occurred this morning in Dayton, the statement said. "We join those across Ohio and this country in offering our prayers to victims and their families."
Latest rampage comes hours after Texas massacre
The Ohio shooting came hours after a young man opened fire in a crowded El Paso, Texas, shopping area, leaving 20 dead and more than two dozen injured. Just days before, on July 28, a 19-year-old shot and killed three people, including two children, at Northern California's Gilroy Garlic Festival.

The 20 mass killings in the U.S. in 2019 that preceded this weekend claimed 96 lives.
