Hey Open Borders Peeps: Nine US Citizens Brutally Killed By Mexican Cartels… Is That ‘News’?

They were family members visiting Mexico for a wedding anniversary. Victims include three mothers, 4 preteen kids and twin 6-month-old infants.

The possible motive for this violence remains unclear. Theories being weighed include a targeted attack due to a cartel settling scores with the family, a kidnapping, and being caught up in a clash between rival cartels.

The damage was horrific. The human cost was worse.

At least three American mothers and six children from a Mormon community based in northern Mexico have been massacred in an attack blamed on drug cartel gunmen.

The victims, who belonged to the LeBaron family, were ambushed about eight miles apart in the Mexican border state of Sonora on Monday.

At the time of the attack, 17 of the family members were traveling in three cars from La Mora – a breakaway settlement founded decades ago in northern Mexico as part an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

There are reports some of the family members, who were dual U.S.-Mexico citizens, were heading to celebrate a wedding anniversary.

Several family members have since described horrific scenes, including how gunmen opened fire on one child running away and others burning to death inside a car that was torched.

Other young children managed to escape and hide by the roadside while one of the mothers was shot in the chest as she put her hands up to surrender. Relatives fear some of the victims may have been raped.

One family member has described how a boy managed to hide his wounded siblings – some less than a year old – in bushes before he ran back to the nearby town to get help after his mother was gunned down.

The motive for the attack is not yet clear, although it is possible it was an attempted kidnapping. A family member reported receiving a phone call hearing screams before they were executed.

The religious group has had previous run-ins with organized crime cartel in the area, including one member being killed. One family member, however, believes the recent attack was a case of mistaken identity.

If there is any good news to be seen in this story, it is the heroism of some of the children.

At least one of the surviving preteens ran from the site of the attack to seek help from the nearby town after hiding one of the babies in the bushes.

A little girl was found alive.
