Trump Responds To Death Of Border Patrol Agent
Just a short time after an innocent border patrol agent was murdered doing his job, President Trump made his message to all Americans loud and clear and promised “to bring to justice those responsible.”
“A U.S. Border Patrol agent died this morning as a result of injuries sustained while on patrol in the Big Bend Sector,” a statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.
“Agent Rogelio Martinez and his Big Bend Sector partner were responding to activity while on patrol near Interstate 10, in the Van Horn Station area. Agent Martinez’s partner reported that they were both injured and in need of assistance. Responding agents provided immediate medical care, and transported both agents to a local hospital.”
“Big Bend Sector was later told that Agent Martinez expired from his injuries. His partner remains in the local hospital in serious condition.”
President Trump is keeping the agents’ families in thoughts and prayers.
