President Donald Trump asked Mexico Tuesday to work with the U.S. to target the deadly Mexican cartels following a cartel ambush that left nine U.S. citizens dead in Sonora, Mexico. “This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth. We merely await a call from your great new president!” Pres. Trump wrote on Twitter Tuesday.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador however, said Mexico wouldn’t need the help from the “foreign government.” “I’ll speak with Donald Trump to thank him for his support, and to see if in cooperation agreements there’s the possibility of getting help,” said Lopez Obrador.

“I don’t think we need the intervention of a foreign government to deal with these cases.”

The Mexican cartels killed a group of three women and six children, who were traveling  Monday back to the U.S. Lafe Langford Jr., who lost family members including three of his grandchildren in the attack, posted a video to Facebook showing the group’s burned and bullet-riddled vehicle.

“It is with heavy hearts and unspeakable sadness we inform you that the 2 missing Mothers Christina Langford and Dawna Langford along with many of their precious INNOCENT children have been slaughtered and gone to their Rest,” Lafe Langford Jr. wrote on Facebook Monday.

María Rohnita Miller was killed with four of her children Krystal Bellaine, 10, Howard Jacob, 12, and twins Titus Alvin Miller and Tiana Gricel Miller, both just six months old.

Dawna Ray Langford, 43, and two of her children were killed as well as Christina Marie Langford, 31.

“It’s a whole new level of cartel violence we’ve never even imagined down there,” Taylor Langford, Dawna Ray Langford’s nephew, told 2News.

Sara Carter earlier urged President Trump to tackle the threats by designating the Mexican cartels “Foreign Terrorist Organizations” (FTOs). “Designate Mexico’s top drug cartels Terrorist organizations and seize their money like we did with Iran’s IRGC. They are killing our people on our soil too with #fentanyl narcotics and running operations in the U.S,” she wrote on Twitter Tuesday.

Last year, Carter produced “Not in Vein,” a film where she followed the opioid crisis to the U.S. Mexico border. She exposed the Mexican drug cartels for manufacturing and trafficking highly-potent synthetic opioids into our country to poison Americans.
