Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) issued a statement today on the attack against two ICE agents in Mexico.
One of the agents was killed. A second agent was wounded.
“Yesterday's brazen attack on two U.S. ICE agents in Mexico is an alarming reminder that Americans are not immune to the escalating violence south of our border," said Cornyn.
"We count an attack on an ICE agent as an attack on all who serve this country and put their lives on the line for our security. I call on the Administration to respond accordingly and ensure justice is swiftly served. I send my sincere condolences to family of Mr. Zapata and offer prayers for a speedy recovery for his partner who was wounded in this attack.”
