As the news came through that Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez was killed this morning in the line of duty and his partner was also attacked, President Trump turned to Twitter to renew his call for a Border Wall across the Southern Border. Early reports indicate that the Agent’s murder was caused by a mob smashing his head with rocks.
“Border Patrol Officer killed at Southern Border, another badly hurt. We will seek out and bring to justice those responsible. We will, and must, build the Wall!”
#CBP mourns the loss of #USBP Agent Rogelio Martinez who passed away this morning. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and fellow Agents during this difficult time. #HonorFirst https://t.co/ALpQ30thVk pic.twitter.com/wLcPzEXtKs
