Gulf Cartel Apologizes for Killing of American Citizens in Mexico [Video]
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
- The Gulf cartel has apologized for the armed abduction and killing of two American citizens in Mexico last week.
- The cartel has condemned the violence and claims to have turned over members involved in the incident.
- Four Americans were kidnapped and shot at after driving into Matamoros, Mexico, for a medical procedure. Two individuals survived and were treated in the U.S.
The Gulf cartel issued an apology on Thursday for the armed abduction and killing of two American citizens last week in Mexico.
According to a letter obtained by The Associated Press, the cartel “strongly condemns the events of Friday, March 3 in which unfortunately an innocent working mother died and four American citizens were kidnapped, of which two died.”
The letter also stated that the cartel had turned over members who were involved in the incident. Four Americans were shot at and kidnapped after driving into Matamoros, Mexico, just south of Brownsville, Texas, for a medical procedure.
A law enforcement source with knowledge of the matter previously said that video showed a gunman dragging people into a white pickup. Tamaulipas state Gov. Américo Villarreal said at a news conference that a woman, identified by family as LaTavia Washington McGee, and a man, Eric Williams, survived the kidnapping.
Both were taken to a clinic for medical treatment and returned to the U.S. by an international bridge between Matamoros and Brownsville. It was reported that Williams had been shot in the leg but was back in the U.S.
The Gulf Cartel’s letter also apologized to “the society of Matamoros … the affected American individuals, and families.” It promised that “the guilty parties will pay, regardless of who they are.”

Oh, I guess a letter of apology from the cartel for killing two Americans makes everything OK. What a bunch of nonsense. If Trump were in office, he would be taking some kind of action, but not so with the whimpy morons in the Biden Administration. They don’t seem to care a single bit about what happens to American citizens, whether they are in other countries or on American soil.
Mistreatment of our citizens is not only common place in Biden’s America, but appears to be strongly encouraged by members of his administration. They don’t seem to care about anything except the power they have over us. A good example of their mistreatment is what they did to Jacob Chansley, the so-called QAnon Shaman. He was given a four year prison term for being escorted through the Capital Building by the police during what they decided to name, “The January 6th Insurrection”, which, if it was truly an insurrection, is probably the only unarmed insurrection in the history of the world.
At seventy-six years of age, I have lived through some good times and bad in this great nation, but with today’s disdain and mistreatment of our citizens by our own Government, I no longer recognize my country.

They are admittedly trying to kill us! **Depopulate the earth?? Start with your own sorry, satanic selves! I have fought for, seen good men die, for this great nation. It is the action of this current govt which makes me ashamed. Yes, ashamed.

Are you serious, leaving an apology? There is far more to this story than what meets the eye. These people had criminal records of SELLING DRUGS. One doesn’t go there for a “TUMMY TUCK” and plan on leaving in “15 minutes” as one women told her friend. This administration is letting this horrendous crime at the borders continue. I’m 77 and never have seen this country in disray as it is with this ADMINISTRATION. Obama’s third term, they are doing the “transformation” that he wanted in his tow terms and didn’t get finished.

What did they do with the “Other 2 bodies? Perhaps, Biden was told, but does not make the matter any better, by announcing it to the American public. My Question is what the HELL, were they doing heading for Mexico?? Don’t give the American public the B. S , story of some Medical procedure, there’s much more to this Stupid story! Biden , had to be careful here, We do NOT another UKARAINE! I have to give the Cartel, some credit for their APOLOGY. , these are Killers, Mexico cannot control them, they CONTROL MEXICO! I’m so sorry this happened to those poor Americans & their families, BUT , you would Not catch me traveling to that country or some other Dangerous place! Therefore, there is “ALWAYS more to a Story. ! & the 2 DEAD Americans, are NOT even Mentioned! You know WHY!

This is all results of Democrat’s being in control of the United States. Everybody in the world knows the Democrat’s aren’t gonna do anything towards prosecuting criminals, so this sort of chaos will continue to happen. It started with Obama and Soros deliberatly stirring up the BLM and Antifa. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit to discover the three of these Aholes had a lot to do with this kidnapping. Indirectly, but deliberately they have caused 90 percent of the gun violence in the US since 2008 when that piece of shit Obama was elected president.
