Three mothers and six children of dual U.S.-Mexican nationality were shot to death in a brutal attack by suspected drug cartel gunmen in the northern state of Mexico, sparking outrage and condemnation in the United States.

The victims belonged to breakaway Mormon families who came to Mexico from the United States decades ago, and some of their U.S. relatives launched a petition over the weekend asking the government to declare the drug cartels terrorist organizations.

"They've got double nationality so why don't they return to their country instead of selling us out," one such post read. "All Mexicans feel unsafe but that doesn't make us ask for foreign intervention."

Alex LeBaron, a former Mexican congressman and relative of some of the victims, called the accusations "baseless" and "insulting" in an interview.

"They're terrorists, these cartels, whether they are declared as such or not," LeBaron said. Previously, he rejected a U.S.-led intervention and instead called for cooperation to improve security for all Mexicans.
