Police say the 21-El-Paso-mass-shooting victim died at a hospital.

The mexican President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Monday pushed its way to the United States in support of gun control legislation in response to mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, over the weekend that claimed at least 22 lives, including eight of Mexican nationality.

“We’re very respectful of what the other governments to decide, but we think this is unfortunate, the events that have taken place in the United States, and this should lead to reflection, analysis and the decision to take control of the selective sale of arms,” Lopez Obrador said at a news conference.

Before the shooting, he allegedly wrote anti-immigrant manifesto, and drove a few hours from his Dallas-area home, to the scene of the attack.

El Paso is situated directly along the southern border from Cuidad Juarez, Mexico.

The mexican Minister of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo Ebrard, on Sunday, the country’s top prosecutor, is considering the submission of the issue of terrorism and Crusius.

He, too, was threatening to file a lawsuit against the united states, saying that the Mexican leaders would be a question for terms and conditions to protect its citizens, while in the United States of america.

“It’s not our decision to involve ourselves in the internal affairs of a country, but this will need to be considered, because it affects a lot of people, in this case, the Americans and the Mexicans,” Lopez Obrador said.
